Astronomers observed four versions of a supernova thanks to the gravity of a cluster of galaxies, which magnified and bent the exploding star`s light to create multiple images, scientists said Thursday.
A Shimla-based researcher, who picked holes in Isaac Newton's laws of motion, Albert Einstein's mass energy equation and Archimedes' principle, Saturday sought debate on his work on fundamental laws of science.
Researchers have measured the minute gravitational distortions in polarized radiation from the early universe and discovered that these ancient microwaves can provide a cosmological test of Einstein`s theory of general relativity.
A 13-year-old Indian-origin schoolboy, whose brain is said to rival that of Albert Einstein and Bill Gates, has been classified among the top one per cent of Britain`s brightest after he scored 160 points in an IQ test.
The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded 14 million euros to a team of European astrophysicists to construct the first accurate image of a black hole, and to test the predictions of current theories of gravity, including Einstein`s general theory of relativity.
