Problem with Einstein’s Theory of Relativity

Einstein's theory of relativity was beyond any doubt lovely, different from any other theory ever imagined by mankind. Newton described gravity merely as a force acting over a distance attracting any 2 masses, the force proportional to the product of the two masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. This … Continue reading Problem with Einstein’s Theory of Relativity

Matter, Antimatter and Einstein’s equation

It is my understanding that when antimatter comes in contact with matter that there is nothing left but pure energy. And since energy and matter are interchangeable (E=Mc2) doesn’t that mean you are actually left with all matter and no antimatter...

Importance of Cosmological Constant

Understanding the unnaturally small size of the cosmological constant poses one of severest challenges for a theory of gravity. At late times and for large distances, the apparent size of the cosmological constant is constrained to be extremely small in terms of the natural scale for gravity, the Planck mass. In contrast, no observations bound … Continue reading Importance of Cosmological Constant

Cosmological Constant and its Significance

Abdul Najeeb asked via Facebook: Would you plz explain me what is a cosmological constant? When Einstein snubbed it as the "biggest blunder" in his life, what else is the real importance of the constant? Also what is cosmological acceleration and its' effect on the constant...plz...but in simple words...plzzzz:))))) Ans: The cosmological constant was proposed … Continue reading Cosmological Constant and its Significance
