The Italian professor who claimed particles were moving faster than the speed of light has resigned after his finding was overturned. Italy's National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN) said Antonio Ereditato has stepped down as coordinator of the OPERA experiment. The experiment was measuring the speed at which sub-atomic particles called neutrinos travelled from the CERN research center in Geneva to Gran Sasso in central Italy. At first, the researchers believe the particles had...

Albert Einstein's Brain To Go On Display At London Exhibit
2012-03-28 07:13:10

Sections of Albert Einstein's brain will be displayed in Britain on Thursday at an exhibition in London, along with other historical figures. Two sections of the brain will be going on display at the Wellcome Collection show "Brains: The Mind As Matter." The slides from Einstein's brain are on loan from the Mutter Museum in Philadelphia, where they were shown publicly for the first time in the U.S. in 2011. When Einstein died at the age of 76 in 1955 his body was cremated and ashes...

Einstein's Archives Now Available Online
2012-03-20 11:02:13

In honor of Albert Einstein´s 133rd birthday, Israel´s Hebrew University of Jerusalem launched his archives on an expanded Einstein  Archives Online website. The site carries more than 80,000 of his documents including personal papers. The papers are being pulled from a climate-controlled safe and photographed with high resolution cameras. This new project is being funded with a grant by the Polonsky Foundation UK, who digitized Isaac Newton´s collection. ´The...

Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have found a way to manipulate atoms' internal states with lasers that dramatically influences their interactions in specific ways. Such light-tweaked atoms can be used as proxies to study important phenomena that would be difficult or impossible to study in other contexts. Their most recent work, appearing in Science,* demonstrates a new class of interactions thought to be important to the physics of superconductors that...

'Dressing' atoms with laser light allows high angular momentum scattering to be seen for the first time in long-lived atomic Bose-Einstein condensates at ultracold temperatures Scientists at the Joint Quantum Institute (JQI) have for the first time engineered and detected the presence of high angular momentum collisions between atoms at temperatures close to absolute zero. Previous experiments with ultracold atoms featured essentially head-on collisions. The JQI experiment, by contrast, is...

Einstein Montefiore Research Suggests Frequency Threshold for Injury That Could Lead to Safety Guidelines BRONX, N.Y., Nov. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Using advanced imaging techniques and cognitive tests, researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University and Montefiore Medical Center, the University Hospital and academic medical center for Einstein, have shown that repeatedly heading a soccer ball increases the risk for brain injury and cognitive...

Fast Than The Speed Of Light? Not So Fast Scientists Say
2011-11-21 09:22:37

Italian scientists who had seemingly found further evidence that neutrino particles were in fact traveling faster than the speed of light based on experiments have been dealt a major blow over the weekend by another team working at the Gran Sasso laboratory in Italy that claims the evidence must be flawed, according to a recent Reuters report. An announcement in September by a team of scientists working on the OPERA (Oscillation Project with Emulsion-tracking Apparatus) experiment claiming...

BRONX, N.Y., Nov. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- New York State Senator Jeffrey D. Klein joined administrators and faculty members of Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University last Friday to officially open their new Cognitive Neurophysiology Laboratory. Several pieces of high-tech diagnostic and monitoring equipment, including advanced electroencephalogram (EEG) systems, stimulus delivery equipment and specialized video recording devices, were purchased through a $1...

LISA Pathfinder Takes Major Step In Hunt For Gravity Waves
2011-11-14 10:44:11

Sensors destined for ESA´s LISA Pathfinder mission in 2014 have far exceeded expectations, paving the way for a mission to detect one of the most elusive forces permeating through space — gravity waves. The Optical Metrology Subsystem underwent its first full tests under space-like temperature and vacuum conditions using an almost complete version of the spacecraft. The results exceeded the precision required to detect the enigmatic ripples in the fabric of space and time...

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...
