Innovation increases observable volume of the universe by a factor of seven  PHYS.ORG · 3 days
The detection of Einstein's gravitational waves relies on highly precise laser measurements of small length changes. The kilometer-size detectors of the international network (GEO600,... more
Bose-Einstein condensates cannot currently detect gravitational waves  SCIENCE DAILY · 5 days
The gravitational waves created in the depths of space indeed reach Earth. Their effects, however, are so small that they could only be observed so far using kilometer-long measurement facilities. Physicists therefore discuss whether... more
LIGO supercomputer upgrade will speed up groundbreaking astrophysics research  PHYS.ORG · 2 weeks
In 2016, an international team of scientists found definitive evidence—tiny ripples in space known as gravitational waves—to support one of the last remaining untested predictions of Einstein's theory of general... more
River deep: Einstein's contribution to earth science  PHYS.ORG · 2 weeks
Albert Einstein is famous for a lot of reasons, but the movement of sediments in rivers is perhaps not one of them. Yet, his name is associated with those of Ackers, White, and Shields... more
Galileo satellites prove Einstein's Relativity Theory to highest accuracy yet  PHYS.ORG · 2 weeks
Europe's Galileo satellite navigation system – already serving users globally – has now provided a historic service to the physics community worldwide, enabling the most accurate measurement ever... more
Albert Einstein 'God letter' sells for $2.9 million - CNET  CNET · 2 weeks
The famous 1954 letter lays out the physicist's thoughts on the existence of a supreme being. more
Breakdown of the Stokes-Einstein relation above the melting temperature in a liquid phase-change material  Science Magazine · 2 weeks
The dynamic properties of liquid phase-change materials (PCMs), such as viscosity and the atomic self-diffusion coefficient D, play an essential... more
Gravitationally lensed quasars  PHYS.ORG · 4 weeks
The path of light is bent by mass, an effect predicted by Einstein's theory of gravity, and when a massive galaxy or cluster lies along our line-of-sight to a more distant galaxy its matter will act as a lens to... more
