Speaking of Laws.... Einstein's General Relativity Has Been Validated on a Galactic Scale -- Contrary to Modern Cosmological Curveballs

Speaking of laws....
Big Al seems to have gotten it right....

Einstein's Theory of General Relativity
has been validated on a Galactic Scale,

as reported by Maya Miller at Scientific American.

General relativity thus, using Miller's language,
correctly describes "gravity at cosmological scales".

As Miller writes:
"The results also indirectly support the theory’s validity
in the face of dark matter, dark energy
and other cosmological curveballs."
