Einstein was correct – in 1915!

Scientists have finally seen the backside of a black hole and in doing so, they’ve proved that a 1915 theory posited by Albert Einstein was correct.

Einstein’s 1915 Theory of General Relativity predicted that the gravitational pull of black holes is so large that black holes warp the fabric of space, according to The Telegraph. His theory posited that this extremely massive gravitational pull was so massive that it twists magnetic fields and bends lightwaves near black holes…

“Fifty years ago, when astrophysicists started speculating about how the magnetic field might behave close to a black hole, they had no idea that one day we might have the techniques to observe this directly and see Einstein’s general theory of relativity in action,” Standford University professor and research report co-author, Roger Blandford, said…

As time has progressed, though, the mystery around black holes has grown more clear thanks to modern telescopes and the like. That’s how Nature report author Dan Wilkins, a Standford University astrophysicist, and Blandford, were finally able to prove Einstein’s theory correct, more than 100 years later.
