Relativity Stand again

    Einstein reconfirmed

    "In the new Kepler study, scientists used the gravitational lensing to determine the mass of the white dwarf. By combining this information with all the data they acquired, the scientists were also able to measure accurately the mass of the red dwarf and the physical sizes of both stars. Kepler's data and Einstein's theory of relativity have together led to a better understanding of how binary stars evolve"

    Detection of B-mode Polarization in the Cosmic Microwave Background with Data from the South Pole Telescope

    modes B polarization comes from gravitational waves.

    Thanks. The detection of B polarization is very significant if I'm not mistaken.
