Spyman Posted May 23, 2007 Share Posted May 23, 2007 Would the Event Horizon around a Black Hole clamp a stick that penetrates it like a giant Bench Vice or cut it off softly as if that part would suddenly vanish ? Lets say we have a non rotating Supermassive Black Hole in a big void, (so it is starving), in theory it would be possible to visit the Event Horizon with a powerful spaceship for a short timespan while you pass by, as long as you don't cross it. Now, if the spaceship has a metal bar sticking out and by purpose we let the bar cross the Event Horizon during the fly-by, would the internal forces keeping the bar togheter still act through the Event Horizon, which would deform and eventually break the bar from the inertia of the BH and the fast moving spaceship? Or would the part on the other side be separated without any detectable force on the bar/spaceship? In popular science it is often mentioned that you could pass the Event Horizon of a Supermassive Black Hole without noticing. But I think I would notice if I suddenly couldn't feel my legs anymore and my blood would stop returning from them. Even if you where to pass the Event Horizon very quickly there shouldn't be any difference inside, if "all paths in the forward light cones of particles within the horizon, are warped so as to fall further into the hole".
