Einstein was right: astronomers confirm key theory

This is the first time when that this deviation from the forecasts of the simpler Newtonian theory of gravity has been seen in the movement of a star around a supermassive black hole .

This won't happen again until 2287, Nasa has predicted. Rain and thunderstorms will also lead to poor viewing conditions across a swath of the central U.S.
