An outstanding prediction of general relativity is the fact that the angular momentum S of an isolated black hole with mass μ is limited by the Kerr bound, S ≤ Gμ 2 /c. Testing this cornerstone is challenging due to the difficulty in modeling spinning compact objects that violate this bound. We argue that precise, model-independent tests can be achieved by measuring gravitational waves from an extreme mass ratio inspiral around a supermassive object, one of the main targets of the future LISAdoi:10.1016/j.physletb.2020.135860 fatcat:sb3qniwu2fe3vm2k5djdi647oi
