Could I see the end of the Universe?

Question

I have been listening to the Naked Science podcast for the past few years and have become a fan. Many thanks to you and all your guests for discussing science in such an interesting manner. I am always looking forward to what your next episode brings.

My question for you is this: We know that time slows down as an object gets closer to the speed of light. So if I was falling into a black hole, and if I were to survive for long enough, would I be able to see the end of the universe approaching, however that may look?

Answer
