If General Relativity holds true then the majority of the Universe’s matter is exotic and unknown. With current developments in theoretical physics, alternatives to Einstein’s theory have begun to emerge. Furthermore, the coming decade promises wide-ranging, cutting edge experiments on cosmic scales. For the first time in almost a century we will begin to test Einstein’s theory and its rivals by comparing them to our ever more precise understanding of the Universe.
