Astronomers Have Caught a Star Literally Dragging Space-Time Around With It

Recommended Posts


One of the predictions of Einstein's general theory of relativity is that any spinning body drags the very fabric of space-time in its vicinity around with it. This is known as "frame-dragging".

Kinetic and gravitational time dilation.
Mass-energy equivalence.
Bending of light due to gravity.
Neutron stars and Black Holes.
Gravitational waves.
Frame dragging.

All have been observed and verified.

Yet we still get people coming here claiming A Einstein was wrong :doh:.
