- The extreme tidal forces would stretch the observer head to foot; this effect is called spaghettification.
- If I chose a black hole of about 10 million times our sun's mass, I would feel only slight spaghettification forces - not enough to kill me.
- You know… spaghettification isn't the simplest of physics theories… if you are studying stuff like this then you must have easy access to the knowledge base anyway.
