Why this is a big deal: Testing Einstein near a supermassive black hole

It’s all about the precision of the experiment, which is a function of the instruments used and the object being investigated. I highly recommend you to check out the source link below. As they write there: Observations made with ESO’s Very Large Telescope have for the first time revealed the effects predicted by Einstein’s general […]
