: As a Black Hole forms, light particles/waves : bouncing off its surface at the moment the event : horizon forms are frozen, they don't move forward, : they don't fall in. They form the event horizon.

: Does light that has bounced off the surface of the : Black Hole after the event horizon has formed fall : into the Black Hole, or is it also frozen in time? : : Does Relativity survive the formation of a : singularity?

Light cannot "bounce" off the surface of a black hole, it doesn't have a surface. I think realativity helps explain the formation of a singularity, doesn't it? Allong with some really freiked up quantum physics stuff.....
