RE: Michio Kaku: What if Einstein was wrong?
It was less than a century ago that Einstein was the most radical physics thinker around. With his general theory of relativity, he discarded the traditional notion of space and time as fixed and redefined them as flexible dimensions woven together to create a four-dimensional fabric that pervades the universe. In Einstein’s vision, this stretchy version of space-time is the source of gravity. The fabric bends and warps severely around massive objects such as the sun, drawing smaller objects such as planets toward them. The force that we perceive as gravity is the result.

Yet Einstein’s fabric left a few loose threads that cosmologists have struggled to tie up ever since. For one, general relativity alone cannot explain the observed motions of galaxies or the way the universe seems to expand. If Einstein’s model of gravity is correct, around 96 percent of the cosmos appears to be missing. To make up the difference, cosmologists have posited two mysterious, invisible, and as yet unidentified ingredients: dark matter and dark energy, a double budget deficit that makes many scientists uncomfortable. Einstein also failed to deliver an all-encompassing theory of “quantum gravity”—one that reconciled the laws of gravity observed on the scale of stars and galaxies with the laws of quantum mechanics, the branch of physics that explains the behavior of particles in the subatomic realm.

good stuff! Yes, all this stuff needs to be brought into question. Kaku is always so damn compelling when he talks. It's hard not to be intrigued by his ideas.

Quote:The Telegraph reported on August 16:

"A pair of German physicists claim to have broken
the speed of light - an achievement that would
undermine our entire understanding of space and
time. According to Einstein's special theory of
relativity, it would require an infinite amount of
energy to propel an object at more than 186,000
miles per second. However, Dr Gunter Nimtz and
Dr Alfons Stahlhofen, of the University of Koblenz,
say they may have breached a key tenet of that
theory.

"The pair say they have conducted an experiment
in which microwave photons - energetic packets of
light - travelled 'instantaneously' between a pair of
prisms that had been moved up to 3ft apart. Being
able to travel faster than the speed of light would
lead to a wide variety of bizarre consequences. For
instance, an astronaut moving faster than it would
theoretically arrive at a destination before leaving.
The scientists were investigating a phenomenon
called quantum tunnelling, which allows subatomic particles to break apparently unbreakable
laws."

RE: Michio Kaku: What if Einstein was wrong?
this dark matter stuff is pretty hilarious. they don't understand something so they use what's called a PLACEHOLDER..

no empirical verification yet to make the numbers work they introduce something like dark matter.

80% of the universe is supposedly filled with this stuff yet they can't detect it.

People shouldn't have too much faith in science as a worldview.. use science for the tools and practical applications, but literally a few big findings could make most textbooks moot.
