Did anyone else hear about this new development? Apparently if a black hole has a steady influx of matter/energy, it may not develop a singularity which brings about infinite tidal distortion, but it could bring about a 'gentler' cauchy horizon singularity that could be possible to traverse safely.

Article brief found at http://www.aip.org/enews/physnews/2003/split/631-2.html [Broken]

This gentle singularity would be possible to traverse only in science fiction, or so the article made it appear. The gravity surrounding the black hole would still be much to strong for a human to enter, it would tear them apart . The article also makes the assumption that their is an 'interior' to a black hole, and that black hole's are links to other parts of the universe, or other universe's.

An interesting article but I'm not so sure it is practicle to enter a black hole, let alone passed through.

By no means would it be any stroll in the park :)

Still, it is somewhat good to know it may be possible for something to survive.
