Answering the work question raised by CL, I am currently in a project office, and we are attempting to buy some aircraft, but are not having much luck.

Anyway, my understanding of mater combining with anti-mater is that the two would annihilate each other, with the result being a lot of high-energy photons. From my (very) limited understanding of Einstein`s E=MC2, the formula may be interpreted as energy and mass are interchangeable. Therefore, when the mater and anti mater come in contact, the conversion to energy is complete. The thing is, the photons are much lighter than mater, and the net result would be a decrease in the absolute mass of the black hole, thereby reducing the event horizon.

If the above situation is correct, what then happens to some of the photons (any photons, they need not be from the mater/anti-mater annihilation) that were near the event horizon, when this horizon shrinks. Do the photons then find themselves back in `normal space`?
