I am not sure if it would be possible because maybe the black hole would evaporate before I would reach the event horizon, and here's what I'm thinking...

- As I approach the black hose, I am experiencing a large time dilation due to its gravity.

- This increasing time dilation causes "me" to reach the event horizon longer and longer. From my reference frame, I see the universe age more and more.

- As the universe ages, the black hole evaporates faster. It has no mass to feed on, so it just continues to evaporate.

- If I wanted to "accelerate" myself in order to reach the event horizon "sooner", my time dilation would just add to the problem and the black hole would evaporate even faster with respect to myself.

So I never reach the black hole's event horizon, or I do, or I do or don't, depending on the original size of it?

I think that this can be solved by equations only, but I doubt I'll understand them, so I guess, I am just interested in a final answer. Any brave empiricists? :)
