So, here’s the deal with the “anomalous precession” of Mercury. Basically, when scientists looked at the way Mercury goes around the Sun, they noticed something weird. You see, according to the laws of gravity that Newton came up with, they expected Mercury’s closest point to the Sun (called the perihelion) to shift its position gradually over time. But the actual shift they observed was a bit wonky, not exactly what they were expecting.

Long story short, Einstein’s theory explained this funky precession of Mercury’s orbit perfectly, and it showed that classical physics wasn’t the whole story. It was a big win for Einstein and a major step forward in our understanding of gravity and how the universe works.

“Anomalous Precession” is a song from Muted Symphony’s album “Mercury”.
