Latest General relativity Stories
Astronomers have discovered a pair of white dwarfs spiraling into one another at breakneck speeds.
Direct evidence of the existence of gravitational waves is something that has long eluded researchers, however new research has suggested that adding just one of the proposed detectors in Japan, Australia and India will drastically increase the expected rate of detection.
NASAâ€™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.
WASHINGTON, May 4, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NASA's Gravity Probe B (GP-B) mission has confirmed two key predictions derived from Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity, which the spacecraft was designed to test.
Did the early universe have just one spatial dimension?
When black holes slam into each other, the surrounding space and time surge and undulate like a heaving sea during a storm.
A galaxy's core is a busy place, crowded with stars swarming around an enormous black hole.
A new supercomputer simulation shows the collision of two neutron stars can naturally produce the magnetic structures thought to power the high-speed particle jets associated with short gamma-ray bursts (GRBs).
New York City-Based Technology Service Provider Is Among The First Recipients Of Kcuraâ€™s Best In Service Award For Relativity In 2011 New York, NY (PRWEB) April 2, 2011 After a rigorous audit and test process, Evidence Exchange today announced that they have been selected as one of kCuraâ€™s first recipients of the Relativity Best in Service award in 2011.
A key technical challenge of the joint ESAâ€“NASA LISA mission has been solved: how to maintain precise pointing of a laser beam across five million km of space.

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...
