I'm a newcomer to astronomy, so please help me with this. I know some basic theory behind black holes, but I just thought of a question. If black holes have gravity so tramendous that it traps in light, wouldn't time be slowed down too? According to relativity time slows down with higher gravity, but it takes a very high amount of gravity to make a noticable difference.
