Rob Ross Posted about 4 years ago LIVE TED Conversation: Join TED Speaker Sean Carroll Ok, so my brain just exploded a little bit, but I'm used to that now when discussing these subjects :) If I cross the EH of a BH and I'm looking *opposite* my direction of travel (away from the singularity) I understand that what I would see would not look any different to me than before I crossed the EH. - just normal looking stars as before. I still don't know what I would see if I look *toward* the singularity. If the singularity were at a point in space, I expect no photons to ever reach me from anywhere between my current location and the singularity, so I would not be able to "see" anything in that direction. If the singularity is not in space but "in the future" as you say, then again, I would expect not to see anything from it since it hasn't happened yet. I guess I can simplify by just asking you : If I cross the EH of a BH and look towards where I perceive is the "center", what would I see? As an example, say I fall into the BH with a friend who is 1 meter in front of me as we both approach the BH. I see him disappear as he cross the EH. Then I cross. I would think I should never be able to see him again. How do photons from his body bounce back into my eyeballs once we're both inside the EH? Thanks again!
