Black Holes

Here is a question for you: Nothing can escape a black hole. DOES THIS INCLUDE TIME? If you could create a suit or ship powerful enough to not get crushed once you enter, would you get older? Or would time literally fly by?

Listen, there are two theories relating black holes, one is that anything that goes in a black hole never returns back and the other is that it goes into another dimension, and even time can't disapprove of that theory...It is not that we would get older or something but it is possible that if we go into the other dimension...the time there is not so advanced and we reach a few seconds ago or a few hours or a few days or even a few years... For more information, do read about Parallel Universes. and Multiverse...

Hope I helped... Good question for someone your age... Abhineet Nayyar · 3 years, 6 months ago

@Abhineet Nayyar I disagree with the theory that black holes can take you into another dimension. I am simply asking based off of the theory that at the center of a black hole is an infinitely dense point. If you read about Einstein's theory of general relativity, you will be able to better understand this next part. Would the huge gravity of a black hole distort time so much that it would be pulled in? Actually, reviewing it, if time were to be pulled in, then so would space, which would mean that the room around the black hole would be getting smaller... interesting.
