How gravitational waves can ‘see inside’ black holes

Black holes are some of the most enigmatic objects in the universe. This is partially because  the equations of general relativity that we use to understand them break down when studying black holes’ ultra-dense centers. 

However, a new paper shows how astronomers could one day overcome this challenge by using gravitational waves to “see” inside merging black holes, and learn what they’re really made of.
