One thing I've wondered about.  Time dilation causes the
matter falling into a black hole to (from our point of
view) slow to infinitessimal speeds near the event horizon.

Does that mean that, from our point of view, matter never
really goes into a black hole but always stays on the
event horizon?

Or am I just overlooking something (I usually do with physics)
