- TL;DR Summary
- LIGO data has been used to test the no-hair theorem, suggesting that if black holes have hair, it is 'soft'.

A recent paper analyzing LIGO data suggests - though not conclusively - that the no-hair theorem likely holds, with implication for the information paradox and I was wondering where a confirmed no-hair outcome leaves us with regards going beyond the Standard Model?
