A single star orbiting the black hole in the center of the Milky Way 07/2018 In a paper published July 26 in Astronomy & Astrophysics, a team of researchers reports the observation of a hallmark of general relativity known as gravitational redshift.  The measurement is the first time general relativity has been confirmed in the region near a supermassive black hole. As light escapes a region with a strong gravitational field, […]
