    In the grand tradition of the previous volume of this devastating series, further arguments against the validity of special relativity are presented, this time by demolishing the experimental “evidence” of the long-lived muons. Also, an experimental method to disprove the relativity of simultaneity is presented.Unlike the previous volume, this one also brings death and mayhem to general relativity ... Read more

  • Space, Time and Gravitation: An Outline of the General Relativity Theory

    By his theory of relativity Albert Einstein has provoked a revolution of thought in physical science. The achievement consists essentially in this:|Einstein has succeeded in separating far more completely than hitherto the share of the observer and the share of external nature in the things we see happen. The perception of an object by an observer depends on his own situation and circumstances; ... Read more

  • Isaac Newton vs. Robert Hooke on the Law of Universal Gravitation

    One of the most disputed controversy over the priority of scientific discoveries is that of the law of universal gravitation, between Isaac Newton and Robert Hooke. Hooke accused Newton of plagiarism, of taking over his ideas expressed in previous works. In this paper I try to show, on the basis of previous analysis, that both scientists were wrong: Robert Hooke because his theory was basically ... Read more

  • Gravity's Mysteries

    From Ether to Dark Matter

    by Louis Komzsik ...
    Gravity is the most detectable physical phenomenon of the universe. Nothing or nobody can escape its grasp, even in very large, astronomical distances. It is manifested in many aspects of our lives. Yet we are still not really sure what carries it. The gradually increasing understanding of gravity throughout history and its observed effects in various physical fields are the subjects of this book. ... Read more

  • Newton's Principia

    The Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy by Sir Isaac Newton

    It was Isaac Newton's Principia that founded the law of universal gravitation on 5th July 1687. It is the same principia that inspired Albert Einstein into formulating the Einstein field equations (the general relativity theory). It is still the same principia, I believe, will lead us to the quantum theory of gravity (Quantum gravity)According to Newton’s Principia, the force of gravity governs ... Read more

  • A New Approach to Quantum Gravity

    Beyond Einstein, #4

    Book 4 - Beyond Einstein
    The Standard Model is inconsistent with that of general relativity, to the point that one or both theories break down under certain conditions (for example within known space time singularities like the Big Bang and the centers of black holes beyond the event horizon). The appearance of singularities in any physical theory is an indication that something is wrong and that there is a need for new ... Read more

  • Balungi's Approach to Quantum Gravity

    Beyond Einstein, #5

    Book 5 - Beyond Einstein
    While Quantum mechanics and General Relativity are both highly successful, these two structures leave a lot of important questions unanswered. They are also based on two different interpretations of space and time, and are therefore fundamentally incompatible. We have two descriptions but, as far as we know, we've only ever had one universe. What we need is a quantum theory of gravity.Approaches ... Read more
