For an observer far away, nothing ever seems to actually cross the event horizon of a black hole, but to "freeze" right at the event horizon. Does this mean that if we could observe a black hole, we would be able to still see everything that has ever entered the black hole? Would every object still look to us as if it was still there, right at the event horizon? Or is no light able to escape the event horizon, so that we can't see these objects?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
