It is shown that the Schwarzschild spacetime can be extended so that the metric becomes analytic at the singularity. The singularity continues to exist, but it is made degenerate and smooth, and the infinities are removed by an appropriate choice of coordinates. A family of analytic extensions is found, and one of these extensions is semi-regular. A degenerate singularity does not destroy the topology, and when it is semi-regular, it allows the field equations to be rewritten in a form which avoids the infinities, as it was shown elsewhere. In the new coordinates, the Schwarzschild solution extends beyond the singularity. This suggests a possibility that the information is not destroyed in the singularity, and can be restored after the evaporation.
