Entanglement and event horizon

  1. Nov 23, 2014 #1
    If one of two entangled particles passes the event horizon of a black hole, will the entanglement still exist? Because that would mean information can come from a black hole.

    You can't send information via entanglement only, you need a classical channel in order to relay information. So even if the entanglement persists, there's no way to relay information from inside the black hole.

    Can you recommend me a good book about quantum physics and maybe entanglement in particular?
    I'm a M.D., who may have a good brain, but my physics is high school level.
