For that, I would be obliged to call upon Bruce for the answer.

Here's a question of mine however...

Quantum physics is notorious for its assertion that what were once classicly thought of as well defined boundaries and objects, are now seen as eerie wave-like "ghost particles" and "probability barriers". For example an Alpha particle suddenly finds itself "leaking" through nuclear force barrier, thereby quantum-tunneling its way to "freedom" as radioactive decay product.

I've heard that blackholes radiate all sorts of particles other than just photons (including electrons and protons), however such emissions are higher energy and hence rarer. I wonder if it would be possible to manipulate quantum barriers to allow for the immediate escape of of infalling astronaut if we catch him before crunch at singularity...(??) Can we technically tunnel our way out of a blackhole without breaking laws of physics?
