The effective field theory approach to general relativity allows to
apply techniques for computing Feynman diagrams used in high energy
physics in order to calculate the gravitational two-body potential. In the
talk I will discuss the first-time calculation of the static two-body
potential to fifth post-Newtonian order. These results were achieved
thanks to a manifest factorization property of Feynman diagrams. The
talk is based on arXiv:1902.10571.
