Einstein was wrong

God does play dice with the universe. Otherwise she would get bored. But he was right about space time:

Ninety years after he expounded his famous theory, a $700m Nasa probe has proved that the universe behaves as he said. Now the race is on to show that the other half of relativity also works

This stuff makes sense to me as someone explains it to me, but it just leaks out my brain I go back to thinking the earth is flat and everything revolves around the earth.

Everything does revolve around the earth, it's all relative.

BTW, I find sop to be much braver than the author of the article she quotes.

"Einstein was right" is a pretty safe headline...

Colm, you heretic. It was a great movie. Even if you thought the movie in and of itself wasn't that great, how can you not love a movie with a truly spiritual message that pissed off the Catholic Church because they didn't get the point?

how'bout cuter ...

Bend it like Einstein.
The Bends.

>> 'Frame dragging' theoretically occurs when the rotation of a large body 'twists' nearby space and time. It is this second part of Einstein's theory that the Nasa mission has yet to corroborate.


Oh, I book I'm reading recently said that when F. (sorry can't remember name) invited Einstein to the Institute for Advanced Studies at Princeton, Einstein was asked how much money he needed. Einstein said "Will $3000 be enough?" F. had the dignity not to accept and went to negotiate with Einstein's wife - they settled for $12000 per year.
