Accelerated Motion and Gravity Equivalence

It seems a principal of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity that there is an equivalence between accelerated motion and being in a gravitational field.  It seems that an observer would have no way to tell the difference between these two states.  However, the gravitational force being mediated by elementary force carrying particles (gluons I think), […]

Eric Cornell, one of three winners of the 2001 Nobel Prize for Physics, designing 'toy' black hole for research

Eric Cornell, one of three winners of the 2001 Nobel Prize for Physics, said that he was in the process of developing a ‘toy’black hole. This would help in a better understanding of theories around the space body. In 1915, Albert Einstein first published the general theory of relativity. Among the astrophysical implications of that […]
