Watch: How Gravity Escapes A Black Hole

While everything gets trapped in the mighty black hole, why is gravity an exception to this rule?

Singularity encloses a gigantic black hole from which even light cannot escape. This is because you must move faster than light to escape a black hole. However, according to the gravitational theory of general relativity, the velocity of an electromagnetic wave is the upper limit of how swiftly anything could move in our universe. As a result, calculating the speed of various gravitational effects using the general relativity equations would also provide the speed of light.

But how can gravity come out of a black hole? Its own gravitational field should, in some respects, act as a shield, protecting us from their detrimental consequences.

The following video looks at a few possible causes for this phenomenon:
