Good morning. I am wondering what is the nature of virtual particle production beyond the event horizon of a black hole. When a particle-antiparticle pair is created from the vacuum, it takes time for them to attract electromagnetically and annihilate; but since the event horizon separates space-time into two different regions (time even stops there I believe), how do quantum processes get affected by the intense curvature created by the black hole? Space is falling inward much faster than light + time has stopped, so technically nothing even has time to happen. What is going on?
