Completing Einstein’s Theories – A Breakthrough in Particle Physics

More than a century after his first theory, scientists have completed Einstein’s homework on special relativity in electromagnetism. Osaka University researchers show relativistic contraction of an electric field produced by fast-moving charged particles, as predicted by Einstein’s theory, which may help improve radiation and physics research particles. More than a century ago, one of the …

Einstein’s predictions for gravity have been tested on the largest possible scale

According to the standard model of particle physics, the universe is governed by four fundamental forces: electromagnetism, the weak nuclear force, the strong nuclear force and gravity. While the first three are described by quantum mechanics, gravity is described by Einstein’s theory of general relativity. Surprisingly, gravity is the one that presents the greatest challenges …
