I have a question...when matter closes in on a black whole and goes through the process of spaghettification, wouldn't the strands of matter orbit the singularity rather than become a part of it? I mean, the gravity well around the singularity is very high, and the mass of the matter is tiny, but wouldn't it happen in theory?
