Black holes fascinate me. However, whenever I read something about them my "warped" brain always recalls the Disney movie "Black Hole." Man that was some bad science. It is the event horizon that interests me most and I do understand how all of this works. The thing that puzzles me about the article is, if someone gets caught and pulled into the event horizon, why in the world would they even want to delay their demise for a few seconds, minutes, or hours. Their fate is sealed. Why not end it immediately instead of be horrified for such a short time?
