The strange fate of a person falling into a black hole

Here’s a rather fascinating article theorizing what would happen when a person falls into a black hole. I find it interesting in that it reminds me of Schrödinger… the person is simultaneously alive and dead, depending on the observer.

It could happen to anyone. Maybe you’re out trying to find a new habitable planet for the human race, or maybe you’re just on a long walk and you slip. Whatever the circumstances, at some point we all find ourselves confronted with the age-old question: what happens when you fall into a black hole?

You might expect to get crushed, or maybe torn to pieces. But the reality is stranger than that.
