Black holes are regions of space where the gravitational pull is so strong that even light can not escape it and so appear to be invisible. For this reason, black holes are not always easy to detect and so scientists have difficulty in being able to study them to their full extent. However, they may have just had a breakthrough….
Research team led by Kielan Wilcomb of Towson University feel that the best way to really view properties of a black hole is through quantities that are coordinate-invariant. According to studies, there are 17 different mathematical quantities, called invariants that relate to the curvature of space-time. Studies have also uncovered that only 5 of these quantities are needed to fully distinguish and characterise the curvature of space-time in all black holes and allow exploration on a much deeper level.
