Black Holes Finally Proven Mathematically Stable

Posted by in categories: cosmology, information science

Unstable black holes would require a rewrite of Einstein’s gravitational theory.

An international group of scientists finally proved that slowly rotating Kerr black holes are stable, a report from Quanta Magazine

In 1963, mathematician Roy Kerr found a solution to Einstein’s equations that accurately described the spacetime around what is now known as a rotating black hole.

The solutions to Einstein’s equations that describe a spinning black hole won’t blow up, even when poked or prodded.
