    The essential idea is perfectly straightforward: Spacetime is a curved pseudo-Riemannian manifold with a metric signature of (-+++) and the relationship between matter and the curvature of spacetime is contained in the equation R_μν- 1/2 Rg_μν=8πGT_μν (1) This is simply an equation between 4x4 matrices, and the subscripts label elements of each matrix. The expression on the left hand side is a measure of the curvature of spacetime,

    History and Philosophy of Science The world of science, as we know it today, is a difficult subject to grasp. So many new ideas are present and these new ideas are not interchangeable. Some parts do work together although as a whole they don’t fully coincide with each other. The three basic ideas that science is now based upon come from Newton, Einstein, and Hawking. I call these ideas/theories “new” based on what I classify the state of the scientific community of today. After looking at what

    Cosmos was the most popular televised documentary of all time. Carl Sagan produced the original cosmos titled "A Personal Voyage" in 1980, and Neil deGrasse Tyson produced "A Spacetime Odyssey" as a follow up in 2014. Though these two series are relatively the same thing -that being introducing the viewers to space- how they presented the information differed. The cosmos that captured my attention, and kept my attention was Tyson. Tyson had the advantage with the enhanced special effects, his tone

    Mathematical Models of Spacetime in Contemporary Physics and Essential Issues of the Ontology of Spacetime ABSTRACT: The general theory of relativity and field theory of matter generate an interesting ontology of space-time and, generally, of nature. It is a monistic, anti-atomistic and geometrized ontology — in which the substance is the metric field — to which all physical events are reducible. Such ontology refers to the Cartesian definition of corporeality and to Plato's ontology of nature

    Time Travel Essay

    The first way is that you accelerate away from a location that we will refer to as “at rest”, by accelerating back towards them you have effectively “skipped” a portion of time. This is due to spacetime being in balance so having such a large displacement of space means that time must move slower to balance that. Since the amount of time that has passed for you is less than the amount that passed for the location “at rest”. That now matches our

    Leibniz's Theory of Space in the Correspondence with Clarke and the Existence of Vacuums (1) ABSTRACT: It is well known that a central issue in the famous debate between Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz and Samuel Clarke is the nature of space. They disagreed on the ontological status of space rather than on its geometrical or physical structure. Closely related is the disagreement on the existence of vacuums in nature: while Leibniz denies it, Clarke asserts it. In this paper, I shall focus on Leibniz's

    Time? Time travel is no longer regarded as strictly science fiction. For years the concept of time travel has been the topic of science fiction novels and movies, and has been pondered by great scientists throughout history. Einstein’s theories of general and special relativity can be used to actually prove that time travel is possible. Government research experiments have yielded experimental data that conclusively illustrate that fast moving aircraft have traveled into the future. This phenomenon

    This German born physicist is considered one of the world’s greatest thinkers in history. Not only did he shape the way people think of time, space, matter, energy, and gravity but he also was a supporter of Zionism and peaceful living. Einstein was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm Germany, and spent most of his youth living in Munich, where his family owned a small electric machinery shop. He attended schooling in Munich, which he found unimaginative and dull. In addition to this he taught himself
