I am a total novice when it comes to quantum mechanics, but I was reading up on the phenomenon of entanglement and a question arose. Theoretically, could someone take two entangled particles and put one in a black hole, using the other to observe what happens to it? Wouldn't this violate the axiom that no information can escape a black hole? Do you have any ideas about what would happen in this theoretical situation? Have scientists ever discussed this idea or am I totally off-base? Hopefully this is not too stupid a question. Moderators: if this is better suited for the Quantum Mechanics forum, feel free to move it!
