: I would love to hear some thoughts on this.

: As I understand it, as you approach a black hole (specifically the event horizon) time slows down for you as compared with the rest of the universe. Therefore, it is impossible for an obsover to see anything actually enter the event horizon, the light would just slowly go out. As long as you dont enter the event horizon, you're free to leave, so why couldnt you get within a foot or so of the event horizon (true it would have to be a frickin huge black hole so you wouldnt be torn appart by the tidal forces) so that one minute to you might be a few million years in the rest of the universe. Then you could leave the black hole and see what has happend to the universe. Is our sun still around? Are we?????

1. it would be hard if not impossible to know where the event horizon is, how would you know? it is a good idea the problem i ran into was just how do you find a invisibile point in space?
