Special Relativity vs. General Relativity: The Difference

Special Relativity vs. General Relativity: The Difference

Renowned theoretical physicist Albert Einstein first introduced the Special Relativity Theory in the paper “On The Electrodynamics of Moving Parties” he published in 1905. In 1915, he also introduced another theory called the General Relativity Theory. What Is The Difference Between the Special Relativity and General Relativity? Note that both theories were derived from the […]

Newtonian Gravity vs. the Geometric Gravity of Einstein

Newtonian Gravity vs. the Geometric Gravity of Einstein

There have been several theories postulated and formulated to define and explain the natural phenomenon now known as gravity. Two of these is the Law of Universal Gravitation introduced by Sir Isaac Newton in 1687 and the General Relativity Theory developed by Albert Einstein between 1907 and 1915. Note that Newton and Einstein had different […]

Why Is The Sky Blue: The Scientific Reason

Why Is The Sky Blue: The Scientific Reason

The sky is not blue because it reflects the ocean. It does not work that way. If that is the case, then it does not explain why it remains blue when seen from a landlocked area within a vast landmass. Nonetheless, there is a simple scientific reason behind the color of the sky. The Scientific […]

"Good Theory" According to Stephen Hawking

“Good Theory” According to Stephen Hawking

What is a good theory? What are the components that make a theory good? How do renowned thinkers describe a good theory? In his book “A Brief History of Time: From the Big Bang to Black Holes” first published in 1988, widely celebrated theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking briefly discussed what he strongly deemed are the […]
