Re: Feo: double star mystery... (Feo Amante)

"When speaking of the attractive force of a black hole, one refers to its "event horizon", aka "sphere of influence", aka Schwartzchild radius. Only that matter captured by the event horizon is drawn to the black hole."

Nope.Outside the event horizon,the black-hole behaves like a normal mass,i.e. attracts gravitationally other masses.Only what enters the event horizon cannot escape, in the classical theory (it is called the Birkhoff theorem).
