Einstein’s Theory of Gravity passes yet another Test

Einstein’s Theory of Gravity passes yet another Test

An international team of researchers have shown that Einstein’s insights into gravity hold true, even in extreme scenarios. Albert Einstein came up with a theory in 1905 which said that the laws of Physics are exactly the same for the observers who are either at rest or moving with uniform velocity. Similarly, the speed of…

How, when, and where can you find Zero Gravity?

How, when, and where can you find Zero Gravity?

Humans might be able to fly as scientists continue their work on Zero Gravity. Zero gravity is the state in which there is no apparent force of gravity acting on a body, either because the force is locally weak, or because both the body and its surroundings are freely and equally accelerating under the force.…
