Clumped Galaxies Give General Relativity Its Toughest Test Yet
2014-06-26 03:55:21

Royal Astronomical Society Nearly 100 years since Albert Einstein developed general relativity, the theory has passed its toughest test yet in explaining the properties of observable Universe. The most precise measurements to date of the strength of gravitational interactions between distant galaxies show perfect consistency with general relativity’s predictions. The results will be presented by Dr Lado Samushia at the National Astronomy Meeting 2014 in Portsmouth on Wednesday 25 June....

Popular television shows such as “Doctor Who” have brought the idea of time travel into the vernacular of popular culture. But problem of time travel is even more complicated than one might think. LSU’s Mark Wilde has shown that it would theoretically be possible for time travelers to copy quantum data from the past. It all started when David Deutsch, a pioneer of quantum computing and a physicist at Oxford, came up with a simplified model of time travel to deal with the paradoxes...

Study sets out to demystify a selected set of objections targeted against quantum theory in the literature A colloquium paper published in EPJ D looks into the alleged issues associated with quantum theory. Berthold-Georg Englert from the National University of Singapore reviews a selection of the potential problems of the theory. In particular, he discusses cases when mathematical tools are confused with the actual observed sub-atomic scale phenomena they are describing. Such tools are...

Faculty of Physics University of Warsaw Imagine you order a delivery of several glass vases in different colors. Each vase is sent as a separate parcel. What would you think of the courier if the parcels arrive apparently undamaged, yet when you open them, it turns out that all the red vases are intact and all the green ones are smashed to pieces? Physicists from the University of Warsaw and the Gdansk University of Technology have demonstrated that when quantum information is transmitted,...

“Bright Hole Cosmos” was featured in the upcoming BookExpo America. Quebec (PRWEB) July 16, 2013 In 1929, Edwin Hubble discovered that the universe is in fact expanding at an enormous speed. This revolutionary discovery further supported the Big Bang theory which would, to this day, be the prevailing paradigm in cosmology. Author Andre Trepanier is not totally satisfied with this cosmological model and in his quest for answers, he discovered a defendable alternative theory: the...

Watch the video "Cosmography of the Local Universe" John P. Millis, PhD for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Visualizing the Universe is quite difficult. For one, the cosmos is enormous, far beyond the dimensions the human mind can comprehend. However, there is also the technical problem that we usually see images of the Universe as a two-dimensional image or map. Without the benefit of depth, we can´t truly appreciate the scale, orientation, and distribution of matter in...

New book offers new views of underpinnings of physics BOGOTA, Colombia (PRWEB) January 21, 2013 In his book “Rebuilding Modern Physics” (published by Trafford Publishing) Enrique Morales-Riveira challenges many of the commonly held tenets of modern physics. According to the author, “Rebuilding Modern Physics” explains the irrationality and the unreality of many of what he calls the farfetched ideas and concepts of modern physics, which invalidate many of the...

Author Richard Panek Wins 2012 AIP Science Communication Awards For Science Writing

The American Institute of Physics (AIP) has selected author Richard Panek as winner of this year´s AIP Science Communication Award in the Science Writing category for his book The 4% Universe: Dark Matter, Dark Energy, and the Race to Discover the Rest of Reality. The selection committee praised the book for its excellent writing and accurate depictions of the process of scientific investigation. “The mysteries of cosmology easily capture the imagination,” said...

When quantum mechanics meets general relativity The unification of quantum mechanics and Einstein's general relativity is one of the most exciting and still open questions in modern physics. General relativity, the joint theory of gravity, space and time gives predictions that become clearly evident on a cosmic scale of stars and galaxies. Quantum effects, on the other hand, are fragile and are typically observed on small scales, e.g. when considering single particles and atoms. That is...

Physics

Physics is a natural science involving the study of matter and its motion through space-time, along with related concepts such as energy and force. On a broader scale, it also involves the general analysis of nature, conducted in order to understand how the universe behaves. Physics is one of the oldest academic disciplines, perhaps the oldest through its inclusion of astronomy. Physics was part of natural philosophy until the Scientific Revolution in the 16th century, when the natural...
