- Many experts cast doubts on Einstein’s theory for more than a century
- A new study proved Einstein’s theory of relativity aligns with present-day quantum physics
- The conclusion was based on the first photo of a supermassive black hole
Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity becomes 500 times harder to negate as the first image ever taken of supermassive blackholes made a stronger case that gravity, indeed, is a matter warping spacetime. The photo of the black hole’s shadow was consistent with astrophysical findings of the much later time, therefore giving significant weight to Einstein’s idea of general relativity.
Einstein’s theory that gravity is caused by a warping spacetime has been under the scientific lens for more than 100 years. Many experts of modern times have cast their doubts on his finding, saying that it remains mathematically irreconcilable with the foundation of quantum mechanics.
In general, quantum physicists assert that
