Radio-astronomical observations of the supermassive black-hole candidate in the galactic center will soon offer the possibility to study gravity in its strongest regimes and to test different models for these compact objects. Studies based on semi-analytic models and strong-field images of stationary plasma configurations around boson stars have stressed the difficulty to distinguish them from black holes... (read more)
