Telescopes have found a star “dancing” around a black hole in the Milky Way just as Albert Einstein might have predicted more than a century ago
He later issued a clarification that it was a 'slip of tongue.'
Observations of light coming from a star zipping in orbit around the humongous black hole at the center of our galaxy have provided fresh evidence backing Albert Einstein’s 1915 theory of general relativity.
There are also letters that Einstein, born in Germany in 1879, wrote to collaborators which deal with a range of scientific and personal issues.
Scientists in Kolkata and five other cities carried placards and held silent demonstrations on Monday against the comments.
A consortium of astronomers confirmed a prediction of Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity by observing the gravitational effects of a supermassive black hole on a star zipping by it.
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla: Astronomers have found a new application for Albert Einstein's century-old theory of relativity - using it to directly measure the size of a star beyond the sun. In research published on Wednesday, scientists said they used the Hubble Space Telescope to plot minute changes in the path of light coming from a distant background star as it passed by a relatively close target star, known as Stein 2051B. Researchers applied Einstein's findings to measure how Stein 2051B's gravity warped the background…
Parrots are always to interact with and their imitation skills are the best thing you may like about them. But this particular parrot has taken that skill to a whole new level. Named Einstein, the parrot can bark like a dog, hoot like an owl, sing like the songbirds, sound like a spaceship and echo like a laser. Can’t believe it? Well, it’s true! Owing to its talent and brilliant memory, the parrot is aptly named Einstein! Buzz is that the Congo African Grey parrot has a 200-word strong vocabulary. From an opera to a…
LAHORE: An advertisement in a local Urdu newspaper by a man identifying himself as ‘engineer’ disputed Einstein’s theory on gravitational waves and termed it ‘totally wrong’.
