NASA satellite confirms two of Einstein's theories – Tech Products & Geek News | Geek.com
Einstein first introduced his Special Theory of Relativity in 1905 that was later followed up his General Theory of Relativity in 1915 which applied the theory to the universe as whole. Only now, almost 100 years later, have some of Einstein’s space-time theories been confirmed thanks to NASA’s Gravity B Probe (GP-B) spacecraft.
The project’s technological breakthroughs culminated in the launch of the GP-B spacecraft in 2004 with the sole purpose of confirming two of Einstein’s predictions.
Considering it has taken this long to prove Einstein’s theories, it is a little bewildering to imaging how he came up with his theories to begin with. I have to say that my favorite Einstein theory is around the notion that time is relative meaning that for someone who is in a spacecraft traveling close to the speed of light they may only experience time passing in a matter of hours or minutes while someone else back on Earth would be experiencing time as days or years.
Einstein was a Genius or Insane? - Fine line between genies and insanity... because he was different and brilliant and didn't think like everyone else does. Or Because he was holding the Truth ?

Gravitational Force and Electromagnetic Base

Until a few years ago scientists believed that all forces could be categorized into five classes:

  • Gravitational force - the force of attraction between any two objects with mass.
  • Electric force - a force of attraction or repulsion between charged objects.
  • Magnetic force - a force of attraction or repulsion between ferro magnetic objects.
  • Strong force - the force holding protons and neutrons together in the nucleus.
  • Weak force - the force which causes radioactive decay.

In recent years it has been shown that the magnetic, strong, and weak forces are all variations of the electric force now called the electro-weak force. Many scientists believe that the gravitational force may also have an electromagnetic base, but no proof exists as of now.
