Over a century ago, Albert Einstein predicted that the gravitational pull of black holes were so strong that they should bend light right around them.
Black holes don’t emit light, they trap it; and ordinarily, you can’t see anything behind a black hole.
Scientists have seen light bouncing off the back of a supermassive black hole for the first time
The warped light was detected as faint flashes of X-rays emitting from a supermassive black hole 800 million light years away
The findings confirm a prediction Albert Einstein made over a century ago
But it seems Einstein’s theory was right.
