Professional Biography

Theory of General Relativity

In March 2010, a Princeton University scientists team has tested Einstein's theory of general relativity to determine that it applies to cosmic scales, much beyond our solar system. The theory passed its biggest test yet, with an analysis of more than 70,000 galaxies by scientists, supporting the hypothesis. Earlier in February 2010, scientists said that as a result of moon dust covering a network of mirrors placed on the lunar surface, tests of the theory are being obstructed.
