could you get photons to orbit black holes?

@cheeser,
If observation of the physics indicates light can't escape a black hole, what can the answer be?

@cheeser,
You can probably get anything to orbit black holes just as long as it doesn't move past the event horizon.

@Ragman,
What are you trying to say, a black hole doesnt trap light from any distance, i am asking whether you could have a photon balanced at the edge of an event horizon.

@tsarstepan,
So light isnt limited by the points on its driving licence? Hmm i have trouble adapting to that idea.

@cheeser,
What are you trying to say or ask? One or both of us is confused/confusing.

As I understand it (admittedly I'm not a physics expert), a photon couldn't be balanced at or near a black hole as it would be sucked in ... as is all matter within the vicinity.

@Ragman,
A black hole doesnt suck in everything everywhere, its event horizon,(the point at which light cant escape) has a radius what i am suggesting is a photon could be on the edge of this radius or tipping point.

@cheeser,
Listen, from your other questions posted here on A2K, it's clear that you're a student who is in over your depth. I've stated I'm no physics expert so I wish you the best of luck.

Is your short term memory THAT BROKEN? You didn't ask that in this question. There was NO mention of light in your post/question. Do you think that everyone here are mind readers and can figure that you have an obsession with light in all of your threads even if it isn't explicit on your questions?

@Ragman,
No need to insult whats wrong with asking questions, besides if you dont know the answer dont answer

Wrong thread to make a retort in. But okay.

@tsarstepan,
Ok ok calm down, im sorry tsars. i just assumed that if i was asking whether a photon could orbit a black hole, it would naturally have to be at the edge of the event horizon.

You do realize that up to all human knowledge, black holes are still basically HYPOTHETICAL SCIENCE. No one has actually observed a black hole in action. Not directly at least. Asking random forums for solid no qualms answers isn't going to get you what you are asking (what you really want to hear). And for future use, when you write your threads? Don't make them so vague when you will just add these important details after people start answering them. If you already have these additional details/conditions to add to your question, then add them in the thread topic not afterwards. It avoids further confusion and you actually might get an answer that will be closer to meeting your intended target.
