Wow, I really like the outcome of this study, if it holds up. At first glance I thought "more black holes in dense cluster... duh" but it's a bit more complex than that. Relativistic effects and slower spinrates keeping more black holes inside the cluster instead of kicking them out. And even a prediction.. cool.
