I saw Light Falls live last week. They are also broadcasting it on PBS on Wednesday While the material (clearly) isn't new, it was easy to understand and a nice tribute.

So, when was general relativity actually published?

Good point, that was in 2015. I clarified the subject. This is the anniversary of the confirmation. They was a solar Eclipse that allowed for the measurements to confirm the theory.

When I was watching, I felt like I saw it before. And I did! It was performed at World Science Festival in 2015as well

I have seen that photograph somewhere; there is a tiny little star which apparently moves a tiny little distance from the Sun during the eclipse.
