Extreme nature matches our best maths

Even in extremes, our understanding matches nature.

“… astronomers were curious to see if their real-world measurements would deviate from the math produced by Einstein’s equations; they calculated the amount of gravitational radiation emitted to see if the theory could accurately predict the rate of orbital decay.

The figures matched.”

I find it interesting that the LHC can recreate even more extreme conditions, albeit ultra-brief  & ultra-small.
