Classical gravity proven wrong?

In the early 1980’s, Mordehai Milgrom proposed that Newton’s law of gravity could be modified as a replacement for dark matter. Three researchers now claim that gravity in the regime of extremely small accelerations fail, and that they have proven it.
Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND) were proposed to explain the galaxy …

Einstein was right, again.

Einstein’s general relativity is probably one of the most successful theories in modern physics. So far, it has passed every observational and experimental test. Now, two more predictions of Einstein’s theory have been confirmed.
The Gravity Probe B (GP-B) experiment used four ultra-precise gyroscopes to measure two aspects of Einstein’s theory …

Einstein starts your car

When people hear about relativity, they usually think about spaceships traveling at speed of light, and the strange properties of spacetime such as time dilation or length contraction. These effects actually also occur right in your car. This has nothing to do with the yet to appear Doc Brown’s DeLorean, …
