Spinning black holes could deform under an external and static gravitational field

Recommended Posts

An open question among the physics community is whether black holes can be tidally deformed by an external gravitational field. If this were confirmed to be true, it could have important implications for many areas of physics, including fundamental physics, astrophysics and gravitational-wave astronomy.

Researchers at Observatoire de Paris- CNRS and Centro Brasileiro de Pesquisas Fisicas (CBPF) recently carried out a study investigating the tidal deformability of black holes under an external, static gravitational field. Their paper, published in Physical Review Letters, suggests that under such a field, spinning black holes could generally deform.
