European researchers say they've confirmed Albert Einstein's e=mc2, more than a century after the famous physicist first unveiled the hypothesis. Laurent Lellouch of France's Center for Theoretical Physics led a team from France, Germany and Hungary in the research, which involved some of the world's strongest supercomputers, the German newspaper Deutsche Welle said Friday. Einstein's e=mc2 formula shows that mass can be converted into energy and vice versa. France's National Center for...

University of Arizona scientists experimenting with some of the coldest gases in the universe have discovered that when atoms in the gas get cold enough, they can spontaneously spin up into what might be described as quantum mechanical twisters or hurricanes. The surprising experimental results agree with independent numerical simulations produced by collaborating scientists at the University of Queensland in Australia. The Arizona and Queensland researchers are reporting the results of the...

After 3 years and $10,000 worth of restoration costs, Albert Einstein's long-lost telescope will be put on display at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, an institution the theorist helped start. The old reflecting telescope is bulky, but is still powerful enough to see Jupiter's rings and it's five moons. Einstein received the telescope in 1954, one year before he died, as a gift from a friend named Zvi Gizeri.  Officials at the university believe Gizeri may have made the telescope...

LONDON (AP) - Albert Einstein: arch rationalist or scientist with a spiritual core? A letter being auctioned in London this week adds more fuel to the long-simmering debate about the Nobel prize-winning physicist's religious views. In the note, written the year before his death, Einstein dismissed the idea of God as the product of human weakness and the Bible as "pretty childish.'' The letter, handwritten in German, is being sold by Bloomsbury Auctions on Thursday and is...

One of the most significant moments in the history of science may come after a new particle collider starts work this year beneath the Swiss-French border, according to a renowned physicist, Brian Greene. The Large Hadron Collider just might prove that the controversial "theory of everything," string theory, is true. Greene, professor of physics and mathematics at Columbia University, New York City, and author of best-selling books on string theory, spoke Tuesday at Brigham Young...

Scientists hope that a new supercomputer being built by Syracuse University's Department of Physics may help them identify the sound of a celestial black hole. The supercomputer, dubbed SUGAR (SU Gravitational and Relativity Cluster), will soon receive massive amounts of data from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) that was collected over a two-year period at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO). LIGO is funded by the National Science Foundation and...

2012-05-29 11:22:42

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...
