Gravitational Waves Are The 'Sounds Of The Universe'
2011-10-03 09:19:36

Einstein wrote about them, and we're still looking for them -- gravitational waves, which are small ripples in the fabric of space-time, that many consider to be the sounds of our universe. Just as sound complements vision in our daily life, gravitational waves will complement our view of the universe taken by standard telescopes. Albert Einstein predicted gravitational waves in 1918. Today, almost 100 years later, advanced gravitational wave detectors are being constructed in the US,...

Image 1 - Einstein's Theory Of Relativity Confirmed
2011-09-28 14:51:08

New measurements have confirmed Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity after an experiment last week brought the theory into question. Einstein's general theory of relativity says that light emitted from stars and galaxies is slightly tugged by gravity from celestial bodies. Physicists reported last week that neutrinos can travel faster than light, which sent a blow to Einstein's theory of special relativity. The particles in the experiments conducted between the European...

The European Space Agency (ESA) said on Thursday that the fourth of Europe's robot freighters has been named after Albert Einstein. The Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) is one of Europe's main contributions to the International Space Station (ISS) and is due to launch in early 2013. ESA said the ATV will launch aboard an Ariane 5 rocket and then carry the rest of its weight to the ISS under its own power, carrying food and other essentials to the orbiting laboratory. The spacecraft will...

NASA's Gravity Probe B (GP-B) has produced astonishing new confirmation of two key predictions derived from Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity, which the spacecraft was designed to assess. The satellite's observations show the Earth is very slightly warping time and space, and even pulling them around with it.  The findings validate Einstein's prediction, devised nearly a century ago, that large objects in the universe distort space and time with the force of their gravity,...

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...
