Latest Introduction to general relativity Stories
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.
New measurements have confirmed Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity after an experiment last week brought the theory into question.
Scientists using a continent-wide array of radio telescopes have made an extremely precise measurement of the curvature of space caused by the Sun's gravity, and their technique promises a major contribution to a frontier area of basic physics.
Does an exciting but controversial new model of quantum gravity reproduce Einstein's theory of general relativity?
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.
The rotating black hole has been described as one of nature's most perfect objects.
By Anonymous A study of two unequal mass stars in close orbits has produced results in keeping with Einstein's theory of general relativity.
NASA scientists have reached a breakthrough in computer modeling that allows them to simulate what gravitational waves from merging black holes look like.
Black holes have a reputation for voraciously eating everything in their immediate neighborhood, but these large gravity wells also affect electromagnetic radiation and may hinder our ability to ever locate the center of the universe, according to an international research team.
Gravitational Lens -- A gravitational lens is formed when the light from a very distant, bright object (such as a quasar) is "bent" around a massive object (such as a massive galaxy) between the bright object and the viewer. The process is known as gravitational lensing, and was one of the predictions made by Einstein's general relativity. Description In a gravitational lens, the gravity from the massive object bends light as a lens might. As a result, the path of the light from a...
