It should be apparent to everyone we should shoot a nuclear missile at the black hole to teach it a lesson.

It seems to me if any information (quantum fluctuation or whatever) leaked from a black hole, it would immediately be sucked back in due to the intense gravitation.

We'd all be crushed to death by the immense gravity of the black hole.

Okay, great answers so far everybody.

Next question ... what would happen if our UNIVERSE fell into a black hole?

The galaxy is no more 'falling into a black hole' than the Earth and other planets and their satellites are 'falling into' the sun.

But they ARE. If it were not for the forward momentum, all the planets would be in the Sun right now. And as the orbits decay, it's inevitable, albeit, billions of years into the future, and quite probably, the Sun will die an explosive death before it happens.

I'm curious what the astrophysicists think will happen. With the moon and the earth, the moon actually gets further away with time because of tidal forces. Would there be sufficient forces for some of the planets to eventually escape? I have no idea, and the math of the multi-body system is beyond me.

I've long wondered how matter reaching the event horizon behaves. Does matter exceed the speed of light at the event horizon (or inside it)?
