Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study out of the UK suggests that maybe parents should educate their children a little more about facts, and a little less about reality stars and fictional characters. According to the new study, a third of primary school children in the UK believe that Albert Einstein is a reality television star. The UK school children polled in the study believe that they had seen Einstein on shows like The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent....

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Astronomers, using the Keck Observatory, have found the star they need to test Einstein's theory about the fabric of space-time. UCLA astronomers said they have discovered a star that orbits the enormous black hole at the center of our Milky Way that will help discover whether Albert Einstein was right in his fundamental prediction of how black holes warp space and time. The star, S0-102, orbits the black hole every...

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Artifacts owned by celebrities can fetch big prices at auction, while actual body parts can be quite valuable as well. Last year John Lennon´s tooth sold for more than $31,000 at auction. By contrast Che Guevara´s hands — which were cut off the body of the revolutionary after he was executed in 1967 to confirm that he was truly dead — have mysteriously disappeared and were even the subject of a film! The...

Howard Bloom, who´s been called “the next Stephen Hawking” and the “Einstein, Newton, Darwin, and Freud of the 21st Century,” has written a monumental new tome for anyone curious about the beginning, middle, and end of the cosmos. Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) September 10, 2012 How does an inanimate universe manage the God-like feat of creating itself from absolutely nothing? And what enables it, after pulling itself up by its own cosmic bootstraps, to continue to...

Bioinformaticians of Jena University calculated the optimal value of hematocrit with the help of Einstein's equation When people say "Blood is thicker than water," they are literally right. Because nearly half of the 'life liquid' consists of solid components. The red blood cells form the greatest part of it — all in all around 40 percent of the blood. They contain the red pigment hemoglobin and are responsible for the transport of oxygen. "It is amazing that the percentage of...

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...
