Distortions in space-time may put Einstein’s theory of relativity to the ultimate test

Scientists will soon test Einstein’s theory of general relativity by measuring time distortion.

According to new research published on June 22 in the journal Astronomy of Nature, the newly proposed method turns the edge of space and time into a vast cosmic lab to investigate whether general relativity can identify dark matter – a mysterious, invisible form of matter that can only be inferred by its gravitational influence on visible matter of the universe and energy — as well as the accelerating expansion of the universe due to dark energy. The method is ready to be tested in future surveys of the deep universe, according to the study’s authors.
