Question about Physics and Black holes

While I was in the shower, I was thinking about black holes-- and if you were to approach a black hole It would take an infinite amount of time to cross that event Horizon (Can’t remember for sure if this is from an observer or from the perspective of an object getting closer-- pretty sure its the latter as an observer would just watch as the object getting closer just freeze and fade in a redshift).

Because of this-- and if we as a species master renewable energy in some capacity-- would it be possible to build a space colony that approaches a black hole and never worry about the end of the universe for all time?

Hi, I’m afraid it’s the other way around. It’s from the point of view of an external observer that it takes infinite time to see an in falling object reach the horizon.
Anyway, we have much more pressing matters to warry about as a species than the end of the universe. Like, how to survive the next hundred years here on Earth.

Geh. I guess I earned my B in college for that class.

Indeed, It was more or less a shower thought.

Love shower thoughts :+1:
