100 years after Einstein’s Relativity Theory proved valid: Study shows

Albert Einstein

London: After many years, the Einstein’s providing general theory of relativity is proved valid when the now days’ scientists have made a 3D map of three thousand galaxies 13 billion light years from Earth. Thus, it can also be safely said that the theory propounded by the brilliant personality- Einstein proved valid even far into the universe.

Moreover, it was also seen that though the fact that universe is expanding at an accelerated rate was discovered in the late of 1990s, the scientists were from that time trying to explain the causes behind the said expansion.

Also it is reportedly stated that the mysterious dark energy is there which is driving the acceleration or the theory propounded by the Einstein as to General Relativity, saying that gravity warps (twists) the space and time, could be breaking down.

Moreover, there were some scientists/ researchers who came together from the Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics and University of Tokyo in Japan, and decided to test the theory propounded by Einstein and as such they used the data on more than three thousand of distant galaxies for analysing their velocities and clustering.

As such, when the researchers finally came to the conclusion, the results were indicating that even far into the universe, general relativity is valid, giving further support that the expansion of the universe could be explained by a ‘cosmological constant’, which was also told by the brilliant mind- Einstein in his General Relativity theory.

While commenting on the same, the Project Researcher from the Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics Univeristy- namely Teppei Okumura said that “we tested the theory of general relativity further than anyone else has. It’s a privilege to be able to publish our results 100 years after Einstein proposed his theory.”

Moreover, the Professor- Karl Glazebrook from the Swinburne University of Technology, said that “having started this project 12 years ago it gives me great pleasure to finally see this result come out.” As such the instances of the said results in the study, are published in the Publications of the Astronomical Society of Japan.
