At https://www.livescience.com/physics-mathematics/newfound-glitch-in-einsteins-relativity-could-rewrite-the-rules-of-the-universe-study-suggests …. somebody will be along shortly to refute this study, as tends to happen when Einstein’s Relativity is contradicted. Einstein’s General Relativity revolves around gravity. However, a new observation  suggests there is a glitch in gravity around some structures in the universe and Relativity may need to be modified. It is described as weird behaviour – or a cosmic glitch. Gravity cannot fully account for everything.

However, at https://phys.org/news/2024-05-maxi-j1820070-einstein-plunges-black.html … we learn how data from MAXI J1820+070 shows Einstein was right about how matter plunges into a black hole.

At https://phys.org/news/2024-05-webb-distant-black-hole-merger.html … the James Webb Space Telescope has detected the most distant black hole merger, and the same story is at https://www.livescience.com/space/black-holes/james-webb-telescope-spots-2-monster-black-holes-merging-at-the-dawn-of-time-challenging-our-understanding-of-the-universe …. challenging our understanding of the universe.

At https://phys.org/news/2024-05-space-mission-physicists-hairy-black.html … a new space mission may help astro-physicists answer ‘hairy’ questions about black holes.
