: Well I thingk that there is a few more than 4 people in here... : ... besides there is nothing wrong with the number of people, it is the quality of responce that matters.

: Re the event horison, there are some particles that can go faster than the speed of light, so some particles can escape from inside the edge of the event horison

: : : : : The event horizon is the distance from a black hole where the escape velocity is equal to the speed of light. Once inside this point, an object or particle cannot escape from the gravitational pull of the black hole. The event horizon forms a sphere around the black hole and represents a region of space that is essentially cut off from the rest of the universe.

: : : : whast is the "even horizon???

:: Hi people, make that 5. Anyway, it is possible for some particals to escape the event horizon. It's Hawking radiation, apparently it travles faster than light. Just thought i'd mention it. Oh and an event horizon is also where time for the outside universe can be considered to stop, especially if it is a large black hole. The event horizon causes time to dilate to the point of stopping. if you were falling into the horizon a few km behind a satellite then you would never see the satalite disappear, it would stop, and then you would too, never having fallen into the black hole to people outside, yet you yourself will have. Wierd huh. Matt
