Research Points to a New Technology to Store Energy. The challenge with using an energy carrier such as hydrogen or natural gas is that it needs to be highly compressed into a liquid phase to allow for sufficient energy density to be used in say a car or airplane. Researchers have come up with a […]

Was Einstein Wrong? Albert Einstein thought that Newtonian mechanics was no longer enough to reconcile the laws of classical mechanics with the laws of the electromagnetic field. This eventually led him develop his now famous special theory of relativity. He realized, however, that the principle of relativity could also be extended to gravitational fields, and […]
