A principle of modern cosmology is that so-called space-time is a physically real entity. In Albert Einstein’s theory of General Relativity, light will follow the so-called curvature of space time. For decades, astronomers have claimed to observe the bending of light passing around massive objects, an effect called gravitational lensing. However, as is so often the case in the space sciences, the line between fact and interpretation is routinely blurred. In this Space News, Thunderbolts Project contributor Andrew Hall discusses the tenability of gravitational lensing and explores the growing body of research into its theoretical alternatives.
