Black holes are among the most mysterious objects in the universe. This is partly because the equations of general relativity that we use to understand it break down on study black holes“Superdense centers.” However, a new paper shows how astronomers may one day overcome this challenge by using gravitational waves to “see” inside compact black holes, and learn what they are actually made of.
