Wormholes Driving Quantum Entanglement
2013-12-04 15:25:47

John P. Millis, PhD for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online One of the strangest consequences of quantum theory, is what happens when elementary particles are created in pairs. These individual charges become entangled with their counterparts. The result is that interactions with one of these particles creates direct consequences for the other, even if the other particle is on the other side of the Universe. The simplest example of this is when an electron and positron are created when...

National Science Foundation Einstein@Home volunteers find four Gamma-ray pulsars and shed light on another part of the galaxy The combination of globally distributed computing power and innovative analysis methods is now a proven formula for the discovery of new once-elusive pulsars. Scientists from the Max Planck Institutes for Gravitational Physics and Radio Astronomy together with volunteers from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan and the United States discovered four...

They are the coldest objects in the Universe and are so fragile that even a single photon can heat and destroy them. Known as Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs) and consisting of just a cluster of atoms, it has up until now been impossible to measure and control these remarkable forms of matter simultaneously. In a new study published today, 28 November, in the Institute of Physics and German Physical Society's New Journal of Physics, a group of researchers from the UK and Australia have...

Revealing New Information On Strength Of Black Hole Mergers
2013-11-08 07:13:10

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) in eastern Australia has helped reveal new information about the strength of black hole mergers. Giant black holes throughout the universe sometimes pair up and merge, sending out gravitational waves that ripple across space and time. Albert Einstein predicted that these waves exist, but scientists have yet to directly detect one. Astronomers were able to...

Perfect Mission Comes To A Fiery End For ATV Albert Einstein
2013-11-04 11:25:46

ESA ESA’s fourth Automated Transfer Vehicle cargo ferry, Albert Einstein, completed its five-month mission to the International Space Station by reentering the atmosphere today and burning up safely over an uninhabited area of the southern Pacific Ocean. Automated Transfer Vehicles (ATVs) are the most complex space vehicles ever developed in Europe and are the largest and most capable resupply ships to dock with the Space Station. At 20 tons, ATV-4 set the record for the heaviest...

After Monday Morning Departure, Albert Einstein Plans Return Home
2013-10-28 07:35:27

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online “Albert Einstein” had a good run in space, but now it is time to return home. Technically known as the ESA’s fourth Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV-4), Albert Einstein has been docked with the International Space Station (ISS) since June. After a successful release from the orbiting lab’s Zvezda service module at 4:55 a.m. EDT Monday morning, it will begin making the voyage back to Earth. The departure of Einstein...

Einstein's Brain Was Apparently Very Well-Connected

[ Watch the Video: Dissecting Einstein's Brain ] redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Albert Einstein is generally recognized as one of the greatest thinkers of the 20th century, but exactly what was it that made his brain so special? The authors of a recently published study believe that they have found the answer to that riddle. Writing in the journal Brain, Weiwei Men of East China Normal University's Department of Physics and his colleagues explained that the...

According to a Reuters report earlier this week, cyber criminals have once again scored big by hacking three major data brokers, resulting in some serious privacy questions for countless customers and once again proving that the “fundamental approach to cyber security must finally change,” according to Joe Caruso, the founder of Global Digital Forensics, a premier provider of computer forensics services and cyber security solutions for all of the 21st century. New York, NY (PRWEB)...

Annalen der Physik (Annals of Physics)
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...
