Albert Einstein Resupply Craft Set To Dock With Space Station On Saturday
2013-06-14 08:39:14

[WATCH VIDEO: ATV4 Launch Highlights] Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online On Saturday, June 15 the ESA´s fourth Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV4), named Albert Einstein, is set to dock autonomously with the International Space Station (ISS). Einstein launched aboard an Ariane-5 rocket on June 5 and is carrying scientific experiments, supplies and fuel for the orbiting station and its crew. ATV4 will complete a series of phasing maneuvers (thruster burns) on...

Last Look At ATV-4 Before It Launches

ESA Engineers look on as the Ariane 5 launcher fairing is lowered over ESA´s Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV), the largest and most sophisticated space ferry to supply the International Space Station. The smaller dark cylinder visible inside the white fairing is ATV Albert Einstein, the fourth spacecraft in the series that will be launched from Europe´s Spaceport in French Guiana tomorrow. This was the last time anybody on Earth will see ATV-4 directly and the last photograph...

JQI lab sets a new record for creating heralded photons HERALDING Entanglement, by general consensus of physicists, is the weirdest part of quantum science. To say that two particles, A and B, are entangled means that they are actually two parts of an inseparable quantum thing. An important consequence of this inherent kinship is that measuring a property of A (say, the particle's polarization) is necessarily to know the corresponding property of B, even if you're not there with a...

Einstein's "Spooky Action" Theory Could Be Tested Aboard Space Station
2013-04-10 12:02:29

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online "Spooky action at a distance" is how Albert Einstein rather famously described the theory of quantum entanglement. Until now, however, experiments attempting to examine this peculiar quantum mechanical phenomenon have been limited to relatively small distances on Earth. Researchers have proposed a solution to this in a new study published in the New Journal of Physics. To test the limits of Einstein's "spooky action" and potentially...

Einstein's 134th Birthday
2013-03-14 14:34:12

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Albert Einstein, almost unanimously considered the greatest physicist since Sir Isaac Newton, would have turned 134 today. His legacy can still be seen in modern society — in the revelations being made by physicists around the world and by his theories that they are still struggling to comprehend. "I am convinced that (God) does not play dice." Perhaps the most prominent contemporary example of Einstein´s legacy is...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online There may never be another scientific genius on the level of Einstein, Newton, Darwin or Copernicus, one prominent US psychology professor claims in a recently published article. In that paper, which was published by the journal Nature, Dean Keith Simonton of the University of California-Davis (UC Davis) wrote that individuals who possess what he refers to as the ultimate level of scientific creativity could be an extinct species,...

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...
