Einstein’s gravity theory passes toughest test yet
The gravity of a massive neutron star orbited by a compact, white dwarf star is so intense that it offers an unprecedented testing ground for theories of gravity.

 Einstein was right: Space-time is smooth, not foamy 



Scientists traced the journey of photos from a gamma-ray burst that originated 7 billion light years away to determine the shape of space-time.

CERN to re-run Einstein tests in May after cable doubtsPhysicists are to run new tests in May after the CERN research institute said on Feb. 23 that its startling findings appearing to show that one of Einstein’s fundamental theories was wrong could have been caused by a loose cable.

New test finds neutrinos still faster than lightThe experiment appears to provide further evidence that Einstein may have been wrong when he said nothing could go faster than the speed of light.
