If you were to take a step into a small black hole, your body would most closely resemble toothpaste being extruded out of the tube. Tidal forces are so strong at a black hole's threshold (called the "event horizon") that they would stretch your body into a string of atoms as you fell into the abyss. But if you fell into a somewhat larger black hole with less extreme tides, you could maintain your internal structure. Einstein's theory of time dilation suggests that if you looked forward…

UPDATE: Hawking’s new suggestion is that the apparent horizon is the real boundary–a place that grows or shrinks according to how much matter is consumed or radiation is given off. Ultimately, as Hawking writes, “The absence of event horizons means that there are no black holes — in the sense of regimes from which light can’t escape to infinity.” - Credit: NASA - Read more: http://www.fromquarkstoquasars.com/stephen-hawking-bombshell-black-holes-as-we-know-them-do-not-exist/

In August of 2007, astronomers located a gigantic hole in the universe. This empty space, stretching nearly a billion light-years across, is devoid of any matter such as galaxies, stars, and gas, and neither does it contain the strange and mysterious dark matter, which can be detected but not seen. The large void in the Constellation Eridanus appears to be improbable given current cosmological models. God told Job He was beyond the empty space... The Book of Job in the Holy Bible
