Einstein wins again: Space satellite confirms weak equivalence principle

enlarge / There is a long tradition of using experiments to test the weak equivalence principle – the basis of Einstein’s general theory of relativity. ONERA One of the most counterintuitive concepts in physics is that all objects fall at the same speed regardless of mass, also known as the equivalence principle. This was memorably …

NASA’s James Webb discovers stunning ‘Einstein ring’ 12 billion light-years from Earth

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has captured a near-perfect “Einstein ring,” a bull’s-eye pattern when light from one galaxy or star passes through another 12 billion light-years from Earth. A galaxy or massive object is formed – a light year is about six trillion miles. Albert Einstein first predicted in 1915 that the glowing …
