I have a question........Light is shifted toward the red end of the spectrum when under the influnce of a gravitational field. So if under the COLLOSAL gravitational field created by a black hole light should be severely red shifted. When X-rays and Gamma rays are seen coming from all the hot gasses that fall into the hole does that mean that they are gamma rays after being severly red shifted? In that case at the time of emission they were of a greater magnitude than even cosmic rays correct? They were probably so much higher on the spectrum that they compare to gamma rays as x-rays do to radio waves. what kinda rays would this be?
