I've read a newspaper article which claims:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); "If the search for gravitational waves succeeds, then Einstein's theory of general relativity may have to be revised"

But I thought that Einstein predicted gravitational waves, so surely if they are found, it would confirm general relativity.

I don't know much about general relativity, so I thought I'd ask here to see if the article is right or not.
