Objects falling into black holes reach a singularity. They seem to vanish at the singularity, and together with them, any information they carry. This is very bad for Quantum Mechanics. I present a proposed solution, based on recent advances in the geometry and physics of singularities. The video aims to explain the main ideas without equations, in a graphical and accessible manner. Technical details can be found in C. Stoica, Singular General Relativity, PhD Thesis, arXiv:1301.2231, and references therein.
