Collapse of a rotating shell in 3+1 dimensions (special seminar)

We consider a rotating thin shell which is on the boundary between a near horizon extremal Kerr spacetime and a static near horizon spacetime. The matter on the shell is taken to be described by the stress-energy tensor of an anisotropic fluid. We show that the shell does not collapse through the horizon of the outer geometry.
