General Relativity and Gravitational Lensing: Part 1 - Einstein and Eddington

As an astrophysicist and a human, I feel confident in saying that the average person generally lives their lives in a low speed world. However, many of my fellow humans may disagree with my opinion. 2,188 more words


Quantum geons

A number of models describing particles as solitons—stable self-bound concentrations of
field energy—have been proposed. In an early paper Rosen obtained soliton solutions
from the interaction of a complex… 425 more words
