I often see questions on this site that only apply to non-spinning black holes and often wonder how the answer would be different for a spinning black hole. As the title says, what are the major differences between the behavior of spinning and non-spinning black holes, especially when it comes to the effect on space-time?

    $\begingroup$ This sounds a bit too broad question. Have you done some basic research on the topic on your own, eg en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kerr_metric? If so, please refine the question to be more specific $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ This would be an essay on the differences between the Schwarzschild and Kerr metrics. $\endgroup$ May 3 '19 at 7:18

    $\begingroup$ @tuomas Indeed I have done some research but there is no similar question on this site so I figured that I should ask one! $\endgroup$
