Einstein’s ‘impossible’ hope: Light bending theory directly observed in distant stars for first time

The team, led by Kailash Sahu of the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, measured the mass of a white dwarf star Continue reading Einstein’s ‘impossible’ hope: Light bending theory directly observed in distant stars for first time
