    Reading this thread is very intersting.
    I have a few questions of Frank or anyone else who is versed in this area of space.
    They really don't have anything to do with "navigation" per say but since we're on the subject of space......why not ask?
    1. Explain the Schwartzchild Radius and the Event Horizon of a black hole.
    a. Are they the same thing?
    2. I've read, with no understanding, that  mass would be "elongated" when passing trough or close to a boundry such as a black hole or any massive gravitational field in space.
    b. Is this theory correct or did I misunderstand what was written?
    c. Do photons have "mass" and would they be physically "stretched" in this situation?
    3. I read an Isaac Azimov book years ago when he asks: "Of the 3 basic forces of the universe which 1 is the most over whelming or most powerfull?" Electro-mechanical, Nuclear, Gravitation. I believe he explained Nuclear was the most overwhelming of forces.
    d. If the above is correct how could any mass be "elongated" ?
    Thanks for indulging me on this. It's just such an interesting topic you guys have brought up.
