Gravitational Wave Detection Might Be Announced Feb. 11
Gravitational waves may have been detected for the first time, but we won't know for sure until February 11, 2016 — when scientists will either confirm or dispel the rumors, sources close to the matte...
Breakthrough Junior Challenge: Some Cool Ways of Looking at the Special Theory of Relativity
110 years ago Albert Einstein published a theory that revolutionized the way we think about the universe. In this video I'll show you how to prove its two postulates using easy-to-understand real-worl...
Spacecraft That Will Test Einstein Theory Ready For Lift-Off
A spacecraft designed to test Albert Einstein's Theory of General Relativity is set to launch on Dec. 2. Under the eLISA Mission, LISA Pathfinder will help scientists detect presence of gravitational ...
Will Quantum Mechanics Swallow Relativity?
At present physicists have two separate rulebooks explaining how nature works. There is general relativity, which beautifully accounts for gravity and all of the things it dominates: orbiting planets,...
Albert Einstein Wouldn’t Like It: New Test Proves Universe Is ‘Spooky’
The universe really is weird, which is bad news both for Albert Einstein and for would-be hackers hoping to break into quantum encryption systems. Eighty years after the physicist dismissed as “spooky...
Is The Future Already Written?
First developed by Albert Einstein early in the 20th century, the orthodox view holds that the passage of time is an illusion. There is no difference between the past and the future — both are set in ...
Quantum Computing Is About To Overturn Cybersecurity’s Balance Of Power
Quantum mechanics is now being used to construct a new generation of computers that can solve the most complex scientific problems—and unlock every digital vault in the world. These will perform in s...
Interactive: What Is Space?
In1915, Albert Einstein’s field equations of gravitation revolutionized our understanding of space, time and gravity. Better known as general relativity, Einstein’s theory defined gravity as curves in...
30 Albert Einstein Quotes That Will Open Your Mind

Physicists Prove Einstein Wrong With 'Spooky' Quantum Experiment
Quantum mechanics is one of the best-tested theories in science, and it's one of the few where physicists get to do experiments proving that Einstein was wrong. That's what a team at Griffith Universi...
Emmy Noether Google Doodle: Why Einstein called her a ‘creative mathematical genius’
IN 1935, writing to the New York Times, Albert Einstein did not tame his praise. “In the judgment of the most competent living mathematicians,” penned the great man, “Fräulein Noether was the most sig...
Confirming Einstein, scientists find 'spacetime foam' not slowing down photons from faraway gamma-ray burst
One hundred years after Albert Einstein formulated the general theory of relativity, an international team has proposed another experimental proof. In a paper published today in Nature Physics, resear...
