What Happens When You Fall Into A Black Hole?


As you approach the black hole, the gravitational pull becomes stronger. This difference in gravitational force between your head and feet would stretch your body, a phenomenon known as spaghettification.

Time Dilation:

According to Einstein's theory of general relativity, time moves slower in stronger gravitational fields. So, as you fall into the black hole, time would appear to pass more slowly for you compared to someone observing from outside the black hole's event horizon.

Event Horizon:

Once you cross the event horizon—the point of no return—of a black hole, you would be unable to escape its gravitational pull. At this point, even light cannot escape, hence why black holes are "black."


As you continue falling toward the center of the black hole, you would eventually reach the singularity—a point of infinite density where the laws of physics, as we currently understand them, break down.
