100 years since Einstein’s theory of gravity
Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency celebrates 100 years since the discovery of the gravitational light bending of stars around the sun.
In 1919, observations performed during a solar eclipse confirmed the gravitational bending of light predicted by Albert Einstein’s theory of gravity, general relativity.
In this video, ESA Director of Science Günther Hasinger looks back on a century of studies which have proven general relativity in greater detail.
