Can a neutrino pass through a black hole?
a little more detail...er...um... I have a spot on my neck.
Can you pick it.....yes I can.....can you pick it.....yes i can!

No, a neutrino cannot pass through a black hole.
A black hole does not affect a massless particle, like a photon, but it warps the space the photon travels through. Thus, photons cannot escape a black hole.
Similarly, if a neutrino is massless, it cannot escape due to the shape of space-time inside the event horizon. And if it has mass, then the gravity will work directly on the particle and prevent the particle from achieving escape velocity.
Good luck kicking that spot.Source(s): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbDFS6cg1AI

I don't know if any studies have been done on the effect of gravity on neutrinos, but presumably they'll be affected in the same way as other particles. Meaning that they would not be able to escape a black hole.

Nothing can escape from a black hole, even nutrinos.
