First time poster, more of a nerd than an academic. So virtual particles, can they pop into and out of existence inside the event horizon of a black hole? What about in the black hole itself? If nothing can escape and matter is torn apart, what happens to those quantum particles? Or maybe not escape but are they given enough time and space to interact/annihilate themselves inside such a massive gravitational field? Can they even come into being in the first place? Obviously I know we would only have theoretical knowledge but I don't think I've seen this asked or answered before.
