Einstein wins again: General Relativity confirmed on cosmological scales

In a Letter published on Nature Astronomy, scientists from the Universities of Milano and Durham confirm the validity of Einstein’s theory on the largest scales ever tested. A direct implication of the study is that the ubiquitous dark energy is confirmed to be a necessary ingredient to explain the accelerated expansion of our Universe.
