    Black holes are one of the many things in the universe that scientists still have a muddy understanding about. However, with the incredible advances of technology, we are able to understand more than what we have in the past. Today, the only way to observe these incredible objects are by looking for radiation from the gas surrounding it. What are they? Black holes are no more than a ^3 dead star. ^2 A star that is considered ^3 alive^2 would be our sun. The sun still produces energy by convertin...

    Basic Introduction to Time Travel Time and space have fascinated man since the dawn of civilisation. People have spent aeons thinking about these concepts and the ideas behind them. The Greeks, the Romans, the English, all have stared at the heavens and wondered. And not without reason! As the boundaries of physics are pushed back and back it is becoming clear that whoever understands the laws of physics best will be able to travel through time and space, easily gaining a dominant position in th...

    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 phenome...

    History of Fibre Optics When Alexander Graham Bell spoke over a beam of light in the 1880's, he never dreamed ofthe possibilities that modern scientists are dreaming up for light. He used sunlight which was focused by means of a reflector and a lens to a device which could be made to vibrate in harmony with speech from a human voice. The light beam was made to vary the focus in and out so that the strength on a selenium detector could be made to activate a telephone receiver and recreate the ori...

    The Question (Submitted December 02, 1996) I'm a 10 year old boy who has a very hard question to ask. My teacher Mr. Sperling just had us learn about the Solar System. We just made a Internet site. Now my question. What is at the edge of the Universe? The Answer That's an interesting question. The short answer is that there isn't any "edge" to the Universe, as in the edge of your school grounds where there is more property beyond. Science fiction and other dimensions aside, the best way of look...

    REALM, S OF TIME AND SPACE The theory of relativity has been called the greatest triumph ever achieved by the disciplined imagination. When it was first proposed, in 1905, it shattered the traditional concepts of space-time, energy, and matter. Twelve years later its extended version challenged Newton's theory of gravity, replacing it with the concept of curved space. Its mathematical expressions disclosed some the nature's most intimate secrets. One of its equations became the backbone of the ...

    Of Albert Einstein Albert Einstein Of all the physicists that have existed in the twentieth century, one of them stands out above all the rest for very good reasons. This physicist's name is Albert Einstein. This man's hard work revolutionized the manner in which scientists of today think about the natural universe. As we, the population of the world, march into the new millenium, Einstein will be the man to whom we look for guidance in further understanding this wide, confusing universe that co...

    Alfred Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany on March 14, 1879. You might ask yourself, what would it be like to be born a genius? If you were anything like Albert Einstein you were a very quiet, secretive child who had trouble in school and against authority. And most of all, you would not be a child prodigy as some people might think. Some believed Albert Einstein was "backward' (Current Biography, 257) when he was young, because he could not speak fluently when he was nine. But even as young as ...
