Astronomers discover Einstein, the “dancer” star

With one of the most powerful telescopes in the world, astronomers working at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Chile discovered the “dancer” star that Einstein predicted more than 100 years ago, and the scientist Einstein confirmed in the theory of relativity published in 1915, that it is not The orbits in which an object revolves around another need to be closed, as in Newtonian mechanics.

This star discovered by astronomers in the middle of the Milky Way galaxy near the black hole, according to Einstein’s prediction describes a orbit similar to the shape of a flower, and not the shape of a traditional ellipse, and according to the observatory’s statement, discovered this unusual orbit of a star around: a radio source “known as” the arc A * “, according to Russia Today.

“This breakthrough in observation confirms that” A * arc must be a black hole, the mass of which is 4 million times more than the Sun’s .

The observatory statement also indicates that “the arc A *” which is 26 thousand light years away from the sun, and with it a dense group of stars, for scientists is a unique laboratory for testing physical phenomena that have not been studied previously for anomalous gravitational states.
