General relativity has been proven on scales up to the level of solar systems, but is untested in regions where gravity is extremely strong, such as those around black holes, where the theory makes its most exotic predictions.

Just as Newton's theory of gravity breaks down at high velocities, those close to the speed of light, it's possible that Einstein's theory, which has been one of the most consistent in the history of science, could be wrong in extreme circumstances. The discovery is to be announced at a conference next week 10 to 14 November at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Ontario, on the Event Horizon Telescope EHT project, the world's largest millimetre-wavelength radiotelescope.
But on our side of the event horizon is a region of intense electromagnetism which can become tangled in much the same way that the Sun's magnetic field does when it emits flares and coronal mass ejections. The flare itself is not that unusual. The Icarus team confirmed that, as Einstein predicted, neutrinos travel at the speed of light.

Rubbia said. They eliminated another challenge to it; the new findings did not prove the theory right.
