Who Is Karl Marx?
When writing The Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx thought he was providing a road to utopia, but everywhere his ideas were tried, they resulted in catastrophe and mass murder. In this video, Paul Kengor...
A New ‘Einstein’ Equation Suggests Wormholes Hold Key To Quantum Gravity
A new Einsteinian equation, ER=EPR, may be the clue physicists need to merge quantum mechanics with general relativity.

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...
Scientists Struggle To Stay Grounded After Possible Gravitational Wave Signal
Not for the first time, the world of physics is abuzz with rumours that gravitational waves have been detected by scientists in the US. Lawrence Krauss, a cosmologist at Arizona State university, twee...
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
Albert Einstein was a theoretical physicist who had a huge impact on science after developing his theory of general relativity and special relativity.  After winning the Nobel Prize in 1921, Einstein...
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...
