In November 1915, Albert Einstein completed his general theory of relativity, which linked gravity to the curvature of space-time. Throughout the following 100 years, experiments confirmed the theory to ever-higher precision, and theorists unravelled implications that even Einstein had not dreamed of, from the Big Bang to black holes. From Einstein’s own account of the genesis of general relativity to Stephen Hawking’s paper on black hole radiation, this anniversary package collects research papers, commentary and review articles that marked the milestones of the theory in the pages of Nature.
