: Let's say that you were just outside the event horizon of a black hole. Would it be the case that you would be pulled into the black hole if you were not travelling near the speed of light? As far as I've read, the closer you get to the event horizen the closer to the speed of light you must be going to leave. Since according to Einstein we cannot ever travel the speed of light, event horizen is the last spot at which light speed travel isn't needed.
