BLACK HOLE ENTROPY AND SOFT HAIR
Any matter that falls into a black hole can form an external accretion disk heated by friction, forming quasars, some of the brightest objects in the universe. Stars passing too close to a supermassive black hole can be shredded into streamers that shine very brightly before being swallowed. The first known black hole was Cygnus X-1, identified by several researchers independently in 1971. Keywords: Spinning fields, soft absorption, symmetry, gauge-gravity correspondence, spacetime.
