The Woodward effect is one of many effects that can be derived from the framework of general relativity. The mathematics can be somewhat opaque and so it can be difficult to determine if the resulting effect is a physical, or purely mathematical construct.
NASA is pursuing a pioneering technology capable of atomic-level precision to detect gravitational waves or ripples in space-time caused by cataclysmic events, including the Big Bang itself.
Astronomers, using the Keck Observatory, have found the star they need to test Einstein's theory about the fabric of space-time.
Einstein predicted gravitational waves almost 100 years ago. According to his theory, whenever massive objects interact, they produce distortions in the very fabric of space and time that ripple outward across the universe at the speed of light.
Recent research from the University of Cardiff has found that the dying tones of black holes reveal the cosmic crash that caused them to form.
Researchers have confirmed the emission of gravitational waves from the second strongest known source in our galaxy by studying the shrinking orbital period of a unique pair of burned-out stars.
Caltech simulation points out how to detect a rapidly spinning stellar core
New information obtained by scientists using a 10-meter telescope located in Antarctica has strengthened the most widely accepted explanation for the mysterious force that is behind the increasingly rapid expansion of the universe.
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...
