    It's amazing. Einstein was right all that time again.

    Apparently this means that we can build telescopes that can see things we can't usually like black holes etc because we can see their gravitational effects. It's so cool.

    I'm not sold on Einstein. Many believe he plagiarized the work of several notable scientists. He did work at a patent office remember.

    Fair but this point applies to most of the 'great' scientists. Newton borrowed a lot from Galileo and Kepler before publishing his work, the same way Einstein did from Poincare and Maxwell.
