Question about singularitys

  1. Jul 15, 2004 #1
    Ok, so we all understand that no matter/nrg/information can escape the event horizon of a black hole (Hawking's theory aside http://www.nature.com/news/2004/040712/full/040712-12.html) What about neutrinos? Since they have, as I understand it, no mass, couldn't they simply pass though the singularitys region unhindered? I'm sure thre's a reason this doesn't work, does anyone know? Thanks!

    Actually, it has been pretty firmly established that neutrinos do have mass. However, even without mass, they would still be traveling through space. So if space is curved, they will follow that curve. He has told for neutrinos, photons, or any other thing traveling through normal space.
