... by comparing its measured orbit to predictions made using classical Newtonian gravity along with predictions from general relativity. Using a new analytic technique, the team were able to infer that the change in S2’s orbit due to relativistic...
...might break down at the edges of these phenological events after all. According to Einstein’s general theory of relativity, stationary black holes are completely determined by just three observable parameters: their mass, charge, and angular ...
We are in the midst of a transformational era in the history of spaceflight. What was once an activity purely limited to governments and national space agencies is now experiencing a flourish of innovation led by entrepreneurial private sector ...
After 26 years of observation, ESO's Very Large Telescope in Chile has revealed the effects predicted by Einstein’s general relativity theory on a star passing near the supermassive black hole in the Milky Way galaxy. This supermassive black ...
...skilled mathematician who discovered the Kerr geometry, an exact solution to the Einstein field equation of general relativity. In general relativity, the end product of a black hole binary merger is a Kerr black hole, which is fully described by its...
