Again, there was no detection, but we learned a great deal about our abilities to know when we detected a gravitational wave
For a scientific example, according to the October 27, 2013 Medical Press article, "Neuroscientists discover new 'mini-neural
Turns out, Einstein's theory was right.
Whereas general relativity took a single genius (Einstein) a decade to create, that deeper theory -- known as a quantum theory of gravity -- has flummoxed generations of geniuses for a century.
There has been lots of exciting science news so far this year. The most talked about has been the observation of gravitational
The paper that he sent in, entitled "Näherungsweise Integration der Feldgleichungen der Gravitation", contained a bombshell
This week, the HotBrand is Apple Pay, Apple's mobile payment system which arrived in China. This was a big topic as mobile payment is at the center of the whole digital 'big players' battle in China.
What happens when a gravitational wave passes by? It changes the distance between freely floating test masses in a very specific
Gravitational waves are an important prediction of Einstein's general theory of relativity, published a century ago. Because this theory changed the way we understand the nature of space, time, and gravity, it also fundamentally changed our perception of how we fit into the universe.
Doesn't a discovery that confirmed Einstein's prediction of spacetime ripples deserve a little more than a comment that was "totes" just patronizing to me and ignorant of the meaning of my post?
