What would happen if someone was thrown into a black hole? Asking for a friend who was thrown into a black hole.

@ElfLord Spaghettification, the most delicious of the -ifications.

Assuming the person got past the stupendous heat and radiation around the black hole, once inside the event horizon, the falling person would at some point be stretched into a long, stringlike shape because of tidal gravitational forces, then eventually merge with the singularity at the center of the black hole, and become part of its mass.

@ElfLord more spaghetti than you can fit into one “bad boy”
