Take a black hole
and throw something into it.
it doesn’t matter what. A phone. A Neighbour. A Taco. Whatever.
As it falls in, the black hole will start to emit gravitational waves.
at a very specific tone.
like a bell.
You can tell what kind of black hole it is by the tone its ringing.
On this episode, we’re talking about Quasinormal Blackhole ‘ringdown’.
