After decades of effort, scientists in the United States have opened a new era of discovery by detecting gravitational waves 100 years after famed theoretical physicist Albert Einstein first predicted their existence in his general theory of relativity.
Never before publicly shown in Israel, the 2,000 year-old Dead Sea Scroll containing a complete copy of the 10 Commandments will be displayed for a brief period of time at the Israel Museum, Jerusalem.
This optical illusion created by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), could leave you seeing double. The image is an eye test in which the observer has to decide which face s/he sees – Einstein or Monroe?
The left and right hemispheres of leading twentieth century physicist Albert Einstein, who developed the Theory of Relativity, were exceptionally well connected to each other, a new study has found.
Some previously unseen photographs of Albert Einstein’s brain have been published in a science paper. The photographs suggest several unusual topographic features that may explain why the physicist was so smart.
Four-year old British girl Heidi Hankins has joined Mensa, the largest and highest IQ society in the world. The toddler from Winchester in Hampshire has a 159 IQ, just one below that of Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.
Sections of the brain of the famous Nobel Prize-winning physicist Albert Einstein were put on public display on Thursday at the Wellcome Collection museum in London, as part of the exhibition "Brains: Mind as Matter."
A 52-year-old project by NASA and Stanford University has concluded with the confirmation of two key gravity predictions made by Albert Einstein, opening a deeper understanding of the universe and a toolkit of technological applications.
Will the first quantum twin atoms experience quantum entanglement? In the mysterious world of quantum physics, quantum particles, even at a distance, share similar physical properties. Physicists have created the world's first quantum twin atoms.
Science is getting as bad as Creationism in one way. It’s refusing to even consider its own principles. “Thou shalt have no other equation” could easily be applied to E=mc2, and whole new concepts are routinely relegated to heresy/science fiction.
America must hold its breath for two more weeks, but today millions of sci-fi fans in the UK will tune in to see a new actor in the guise of the eccentric Time Lord with the sonic screwdriver and the police-box time machine.
He was Time magazine’s Man of the Century. Google the name “Einstein” and more than 18 million websites are referenced. Turn to Austrian artist Werner Horvath’s work called Wisdom and Beauty and it’s Albert and another modern icon: Marilyn Monro
This artistic rendering of the Gravity Probe B, one of the longest running NASA and Stanford research projects, shows the satellite orbiting the Earth, measuring space-time and devising a four-dimensional description of the universe, as width, height, length, and time.
