Observations of center of our Milky Way galaxy confirm Einstein ’ theory

Astronomy & Astrophysics published on Thursday results of 27 years of observations of the mammoth black hole at the center of the Milky Way, Sagittarius A* and a star, S2, orbiting it using the ESO’s Very Large Telescope. They observed a Schwarzchild precession, an orbit ’shaped like a rosette’ because of the extreme gravitational pull and bending of space-time predicted by Einstein’s theory.
