Seen in another thread: Does this implies that a spaceship, inside a black hole, accelerating in the direction OPPOSITE to the singularity would actually accelerate TOWARDS the singularity? Or does it simply mean that no matter how fast a speed he reaches through his acceleration, he would never get to a speed fast enough to stop his falling towards the center? Also, is it true that an object inside a black hole will never quite reach the center? That would make a lot of sense for a black hole consisting of an infinitely dense star. However, I think some (most?) people on this forum would tend to believe the star doesn't collapse infinitely on itself but rather has a minimum size (something I would intuitively tend to believe too). In this scenario, it would seem that matter falling in a black hole would be able to reach the center after some time. Correct? Lastly, if the center of the BH is NOT an infinitely dense star but rather has some definite volume, would it still be called a 'singularity' or is the word stritcly reserved for points at which the curvature of space-time is infinite?
