Latest General relativity Stories
If the Advanced Ligo is able to pick up these waves, it will revolutionize the way we are able to see the universe.
Could the Large Hadron Collider be cooking up a time traveling particle? We explore this theory and more with Vanderbilt Professor of Physics, Tom Weiler.
As two galaxies enter the final stages of merging, scientists have theorized that the galaxies’ supermassive black holes will form a “binary,” or two black holes in such close orbit they
What is dark matter? And what is dark energy? These questions are what keep physicists awake late at night.
Will we be able to prove this important, 100-year-old theory wrong?
Celebrating the theory that has greatly advanced physics and astronomy studies through Einstein's predictions.
One explosion is cool. But four? That's great. Astronomers observed a star explode as a supernova 4 different times in this effect known as the Einstein Cross.
The film's visual effects company created a computer code that more accurately portrays a spinning black hole, and this code could be easily rendered for scientific use.
As crazy as it sounds, we’ve all kind of accepted the part of the Big Bang Theory that says the universe started as a single point around 13.8 billion years ago. The thing is – a lot of theoretical physicists aren’t enthralled with that idea, as a lot of widely-accepted general relativity equations start to break down as you approach the "singularity".
A new theory states that black holes can't exist where space and time exist.
Nature Physics is a peer-reviewed scientific journal established in 2005 and published monthly by the Nature Publishing Group. The editor-in-chief is Alison Wright, who is a full-time professional editor employed by the journal. The journal publishes original research, letters, full-length articles, review articles, news, views, physics research highlights, commentaries, book reviews, and correspondence. The main focus is pure and applied physics research, encompassing core physics...
General Relativity and Gravitation is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published monthly since its establishment in 1970. It is published by Springer on behalf of the International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation. G.F.R. Ellis and H. Nicolai are the editors-in-chief. The journal covers modern gravitational physics, encompassing all theoretical and experimental aspects of general relativity and gravitation. The journal’s main goals include public outreach through teaching...
Foundations of Physics is a monthly-published journal devoted to the conceptual bases and fundamental theories of modern physics and cosmology, emphasizing the logical, methodological, and philosophical premises of modern physical theories and procedures. The journal publishes results and observations based on fundamental questions from all major fields of physics: quantum mechanics, quantum field theory, special relativity, general relativity, string theory, M-theory, cosmology,...
String Theory -- A string theory is a physical model whose fundamental building blocks are extended objects (strings, membranes and higher-dimensional objects) rather than points. String theories are able to avoid problems, such as infinite energy density, associated with the presence of mathematical points in a physical theory. The term 'string theory' properly refers to both the 26 dimensional bosonic string theories and to the 10 dimensional superstring theories discovered by...
Spacetime -- In special relativity and general relativity, time and three-dimensional space are treated together as a single four-dimensional manifold called spacetime (alternatively, space-time; see below). A point in spacetime may be referred to as an event. Each event has four coordinates (t, x, y, z). Just as the x, y, z coordinates of a point depend on the axes one is using, so distances and time intervals, invariant in Newtonian physics, may depend on the reference frame of an...
- An uxorious, effeminate, or spiritless man.
- A timorous, cowardly fellow.
