Recently someone told me that Black holes give off some sort of radiation and that this radiation, in escaping the black hole, must be traveling at faster than the speed of light. The biggest thing that I'm unsure of is just how much a black hole bends space. Does it curve it just sharply enough so that light can't escape but,in theory, somthing going faster than light might be able to? Or does it curve space into itself so that if something was trying to move out from a black hole even at an infinate speed it could not do it. then this brings up a second thought. If a black hole bends space back into itself wouldn't this make a closed sphere that nothing could enter. And finaly - if it's true that there is some kind of radiation coming from black holes maybe instead of trying to figure out how it's going faster than light we could think that it's some particle that's unaffected by curves in 3D space.
