CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Horizon Lines, Inc. (NYSE: HRZ), today announced that Brian Taylor, President and Chief Operating Officer of Horizon Logistics, LLC, and Michael Avara, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Horizon Lines, Inc., will present at J.P.
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.
CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Horizon Lines, Inc.
Cardiff University researchers who are part of a British-German team searching the depths of space to study gravitational waves, may have stumbled on one of the most important discoveries in physics according to an American physicist.
CHARLOTTE, N.C., Jan. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Horizon Lines, Inc. (NYSE: HRZ), announced today that it will release fourth-quarter and 2008 financial results before the stock market opens on Friday, January 30, followed by a conference call at 11:00 a.m.
In a move that would have any astrophysicist scratching his head, the US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) commissioned a report to assess whether gravitational waves could threaten national security.
Combining a double natural "magnifying glass" with the power of ESO's Very Large Telescope (VLT), astronomers have scrutinized the inner parts of the disc around a supermassive black hole 10 billion light-years away.
A team of theoretical and experimental physicists, with participants from Case Western Reserve University, have designed a new black hole simulator called BlackMax to search for evidence that extra dimensions might exist in the universe.

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...
