There is even a touching 2008 movie about solving this problem. Title: "Eistein and Eddington"

Gravitational waves detected 100 years after Einstein's prediction

LIGO opens new window on the universe with observation of gravitational waves from colliding black holes

Date:
February 11, 2016
Source:
LIGO Laboratory
Summary:
For the first time, scientists have observed ripples in the fabric of spacetime called gravitational waves, arriving at Earth from a cataclysmic event in the distant universe. This confirms a major prediction of Albert Einstein's 1915 general theory of relativity and opens an unprecedented new window onto the cosmos.
