structure of a black hole

The “interior” of a black hole. The rotation of the black hole is revealed by how it distorts the shape of spacetime around it: a veritable whirlpool dragging matter and light that comes too close. In the region known as the ergosphere, this effect is so strong nothing can be at rest, no matter how much energy it has. Traveling closer (not that you’d want to), the event horizon defines the black hole’s boundary. Once anything passes inside the event horizon, it cannot return to the outside universe.
