Distortions in space-time could challenge Einstein’s theory of relativity

Scientists could soon test Einstein’s theory general relativity measuring the distortion of time. According to new research published June 22 in the journal Nature astronomy, the newly proposed method transforms the boundary of space and time into a vast cosmic laboratory for investigating whether general relativity can explain dark matter, a mysterious and invisible form … Read more
