In 1919, the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS) launched an expedition to the West African island of PrÃncipe, to observe a total solar eclipse and prove or disprove Einsteinâ€™s General Theory of Relativity.
CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Horizon Lines, Inc., (NYSE: HRZ), the nation's leading domestic ocean shipping and integrated logistics company, has been named Jones Act Carrier of the Year for 2008 by Walmart Stores, Inc.
Imagine a time when the entire universe froze. According to a new model for dark energy, that is essentially what happened about 11.5 billion years ago, when the universe was a quarter of the size it is today.
Research by a theoretical physicist at Indiana University shows that the crusts of neutron stars are 10 billion times stronger than steel or any other of the earth's strongest metal alloys.

The rotating black hole has been described as one of nature's most perfect objects.
During the next decade, a delicate measurement of primordial light could reveal convincing evidence for the popular cosmic inflation theory, which proposes that a random, microscopic density fluctuation in the fabric of space and time gave birth to the universe in a hot big bang approximately 13.7 billion years ago.

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...
