Newtown, Einstein, and...?

Newtown was consider right until things started moving at speeds closer to c. What we discovered, wasn't that Newtown was wrong, just that his theory didn't work at a certain scale.

It could be that we're reaching something similar with general relativity. It's not that it's wrong, just that it needs adjustment at certain scales.
