Scientists confirm Einstein's supermassive black hole theory

A team of international scientists observing a star in the Milky Way has for the first time confirmed Einstein's predictions of what happens to the motion of a star passing close to a supermassive black hole. Einstein's 100-year-old general theory of relativity predicted that light from stars would be stretched to longer wavelengths by the extreme gravitational field of a black hole, and the star would appear redder, an effect known as gravitational redshift.
