April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Many mysteries surround black holes, but new research led by the Niels Bohr Institute has come up with groundbreaking new theories that might explain several of their more mysterious properties. The new study reveals that black holes have properties that resemble the dynamics of both solids and liquids. Black holes are extremely compact, so compact in fact that they generate an incredibly strong gravitational pull. Everything that...

Promising photonic devices, and theorists attempt to determine whether particle physics and string theory can be reconciled A Tiny, Tunable Well of Light Photonics, the science of using photons to carry information, promises to continue improving a wide variety of technologies, from computing to high-speed communication. Now an international team of researchers from the UK, Taiwan, and Spain have discovered a compact way to produce infrared light, by firing electrons through a miniscule...

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Ancient light absorbed by neutral hydrogen atoms could be used to test certain predictions of string theory, say cosmologists at the University of Illinois. Making the measurements, however, would require a gigantic array of radio telescopes to be built on Earth, in space or on the moon. String theory "“ a theory whose fundamental building blocks are tiny one-dimensional filaments called strings "“ is the leading contender for a "theory of everything." Such...

Washington -- Physicists who work with a concept called string theory envision our universe as an eerie place with at least nine spatial dimensions, six of them hidden from us, perhaps curled up in some way so they are undetectable. The big question is why we experience the universe in only three spatial dimensions instead of four, or six, or nine. Two theoretical researchers from the University of Washington and Harvard University think they might have found the answer. They believe the way...

Washington -- In three spatial dimensions, it is a close relative of the quark-gluon plasma, the super-hot state of matter that hasn't existed since the tiniest fraction of a second after the big bang that started the universe. When viewed in 10 dimensions, the minimum number prescribed by what physicists call "string theory," it is a black hole. No matter what you call it, though, that substance and others similar to it could be the most-perfect fluids in existence because they have...

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...

M-Theory -- 'M-Theory' is the name of the unknown theory of everything which would combine all five Superstring theories and the Supergravity at 11 dimensions together. The theory requires mathematical tools which have yet to be invented in order to be fully understood. The theory was proposed by Edward Witten. The following article is somewhat technical in nature, see M-theory simplified for a less technical article. M-theory's relation to superstrings and supergravity...
