Testing the No-Hair Theorem with Sgr A*

Figure 6

Evolution of the orbital angular momenta of stars around Sgr A* due to frame-dragging (dashed lines) and stellar perturbations (dotted lines) as measured by the angle as a function of the orbital semimajor axis . The three panels correspond to a Kerr black hole with a spin (a) , (b)  M, and (c) [30].
