H/T: The Conversation
It’s unimaginable to think that any living thing could survive falling through a black hole, but a report published by The Conversation says that it could be possible for humans if certain conditions are met. First off, it must be an isolated supermassive black hole, which means that the center is much farther from its event horizon. This allows a human to pass through the event horizon without feeling its immense gravitational pull. Read more for a video and additional information.
Since the central source of the gravitational pull is nearly zero, the person passing through the event horizon would not be affected, or in other words, stretched into a noodle. Why does the supermassive black hole need to be isolated? Well, this would mean that it’s not feeding on surrounding material or stars, which makes it less turbulent.

Keeping in mind that nothing can escape the gravitational pull beyond the event horizon, the in-falling person would not be able to send any information about their findings back out beyond this horizon. Their journey and findings would be lost to the rest of the entire universe for all time. But they would enjoy the adventure, for as long as they survived…maybe…,” said The Conversation.
