# Observe matter falling into a black hole

@inproceedings{Zhang2008ObserveMF, title={Observe matter falling into a black hole}, author={Shuang-Nan Zhang and Yuan Liu}, year={2008} }

It has been well known that in the point of view of a distant observer, all in‐falling matter to a black hole (BH) will be eventually stalled and “frozen” just outside the event horizon of the BH, although an in‐falling observer will see the matter falling straight through the event horizon. Thus in this “frozen star” scenario, as distant observers, we could never observe matter falling into a BH, neither could we see any “real” BH other than primordial ones, since all other BHs are believed to…
