More than this, black holes may be the means of providing us with that much sought after prize: a quantum theory of gravity
Our results not only back up Einstein's theory of gravity
, but also point to quantum information theory as a powerful tool for disentangling the deep mysteries of the universe.
It has become increasingly evident through the observation of spiral galaxies, the expanding universe and gravitational anomalies, that Newton's inverse square law is an incomplete theory of gravity
The supermassive black hole lies at the dust and gas-filled heart of a galaxy called NGC 1365, and it is spinning almost as fast as Einstein's theory of gravity
When Newton formulated his theory of gravity
, he didn't have an explanation as to why objects should be attracted to one another, and his theory broke down when objects move at near the speed of light or are very massive).
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Recent data for gas rich galaxies precisely match predictions of a modified theory of gravity
known as MOND, a new analysis said.
But Hogan's model suggests that theorists should seriously consider a quantum theory of gravity
in which two very different regions of spacetime, despite their vast separation, can still profoundly influence each other, Schutz notes.
It is very exciting for us because it will be our chance to put Einstein's Theory of Gravity
to the ultimate test possible," he said.
Project scientist, Professor Sathyaprakash said: "Nearly a century after Einstein worked out his new theory of gravity
we are on the verge of making discoveries that will finally test the most outrageous consequences of his theory: black holes, the big bang and gravitational waves.
He explores the general features that a quantum theory of gravity
is expected to show and gives an overview of the primary approaches.
The universal theory of gravity
is often taught in schools as a "fact," when in fact it is not even a good theory.
Take the theory of gravity
and ask students about the basic assumption of this theory.
