Way, way beyond Einstein!

Einstein stunned the world with his theory of relativity, which showed that the faster one moved through space, the slower time proceeded.  When one moved faster, the geometry of space accommodated itself to this unique dynamical law. I remember a … Continue reading

Infinity, Schminity…

A goofy thing usually happens when physicists try to combine the equations of general relativity with quantum mechanics. The mathematics of such a combination begins to spin out of control, yielding infinite answers. Scientists hate it when infinities show up … Continue reading
