Strong-Field Gravity

(gravity much stronger than in the solar system such as near a black hole)

Strong-Field Gravity is Gravity in the region of an object of sufficient mass that the effects of General Relativity (GR) such as Gravitational Waves (GW) are pronounced. The solar system shows the effects of General Relativity, but only through very precise measurement. Near a Black Hole (BH) or Neutron Star, the effect is pronounced. Strong-Field Gravity Physics is the study of physical laws in this regime.
