If we Used the Sun as a Gravitational Lens Telescope, This is What a Planet at Proxima Centauri Would

As Einstein originally predicted with his General Theory of Relativity, gravity alters the curvature of spacetime. As a consequence, the passage of light changes as it encounters a gravitational field, which is how General Relativity was con...
