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...

Troy Lighting, well-known for creating “sophisticated casual” designs, is proud to announce the launch of its winter 2013 indoor collections. All of the pieces stay true to Troy Lighting´s transitional aesthetic roots, yet break new ground by creatively juxtaposing rustic and feminine elements, delving into artistic/sculptural lighting and even celebrating science and the great Albert Einstein. (PRWEB) February 04, 2013 Troy Lighting, well-known for creating...

Extinction Threat For Geniuses?

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,...

Einstein Should Share Credit For His Famous Equation

Jedidiah Becker for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Sir Isaac Newton — perhaps the greatest scientific mind that ever applied itself to the mysteries of our universe — once famously stated that his paradigm-changing contributions to science had only been possible because he had stood “on the shoulders of giants.” It was in this way that he showed his indebtedness to the intellectual labors of those who had preceded him and paved the way for his own revolutionary discoveries....

Photos Of Einstein’s Brain Reveal Areas That May Have Made Him A Genius
2012-11-16 09:34:46

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The name “Einstein” has long been synonymous with the term “genius.” The man behind that attribution, the late Albert Einstein, has been the center of attention for decades, as scientists and physicists try to decipher the inner workings of his intellectual being. Now, a new study, led by Florida State University evolutionary anthropologist Dean Falk, has found that portions of Einstein´s brain are...

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...
