Latest Albert Einstein Stories
Ever since audiences heard Goldfinger utter the famous line, â€œNo, Mr. Bond; I expect you to die,â€ as a laser beam inched its way toward James Bond and threatened to cut him in half, lasers have been thought of as white-hot beams of intensely focused energy capable of burning through anything in their path.
The National Research Council (NRC) has strongly recommended the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) as one of NASA's next two major space missions, to start in 2016 in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA).
Three citizen scientists have discovered a new radio pulsar hidden in data gathered by the Arecibo Observatory.
A sensitive measuring device must not be dropped - because this usually destroys the precision of the instrument.
Pathologist Thomas Harvey has helped transform our understanding of how the brain works after his search to unlock the secrets of Albert Einstein's genius.
A century after Albert Einstein said we would never be able to observe the instantaneous velocity of tiny particles as they randomly shake and shimmy, so called Brownian motion, physicist Mark Raizen and his group have done so.
Could our universe be located within the interior of a wormhole which itself is part of a black hole that lies within a much larger universe?
BURBANK, Calif., March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- With baby's first year full of so many exciting milestone occasions, Baby Einstein has made year-round gift-giving easier than ever.
A team led by Princeton University scientists has tested Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity to see if it holds true at cosmic scales.
For the first time since it was originally published in 1916, the manuscript recording Albert Einstein's General Theory of Relativity can be seen during an exhibit at the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Jerusalem.
Annalen der Physik (Annals of Physics) is a peer-reviewed physics journal established in 1799, and is one of the oldest journals still in publication today. The journal is the successor of the Journal der Physik first published in 1790. The journal has been published under a variety of names throughout its history. The journal was published only in German until the 1950s, when it began publishing both in German and English. In 1990, after the German reunification, English became the only...
Einsteinium is a metallic synthetic element with the symbol Es and atomic number 99. It became the seventh transuranic (atomic number higher than 99) element produced. It was named for Albert Einstein. It is an element found within the actinoid series which includes Actinium. Though it has only been produced in small amounts, it has been accurately determined to be silver in coloration. Like all synthetic elements, einsteinium isotopes are highly radioactive and are extremely toxic. Besides...
Niels Henrik David Bohr (October 7, 1885 - November 18, 1962) was a Danish physicist. He made essential contributions to understanding atom structure and quantum mechanics. Born in Copenhagen, Denmark to Christian Bohr and Ellen Adler, Bohr got his doctorate at Copenhagen University in 1911. He then studied under Ernest Rutherford in Manchester, England. Based on Rutherford's theories, Bohr published his Bohr model about atom structure in 1913, introducing the theory of electrons...
General Relativity -- General Relativity is the common name for the theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in 1915. According to general relativity the force of gravity is a manifestation of the local geometry of spacetime. Although the modern theory is due to Einstein, its origins go back to the axioms of Euclidean geometry and the many attempts over the centuries to prove Euclid's fifth postulate, that parallel lines remain always equidistant, culminating with the...
