Nikola Tesla detested relativity theory, and he derided Albert Einstein as a “white-haired crank.” Tesla supported the concept of the universal “ether,” and he raged about Einstein’s relativistic concept of “curved space.” Tesla also scoffed at the maximum possible velocity of “c” (light speed), which is a central tenet of Special Relativity. When viewed through […]
Recently, some interesting research out of the University of Arkansas, and as published in the journal Physical Review E, has been in the news. A team led by Professor Paul Thibado has harvested energy from freestanding graphene—a potentially revolutionary development of power generation from material that is just simply existing, essentially. These sheets of graphene […]

28 Out in the parking lot, a snazzy little red two-door sports car was parked to the left of Merle’s nondescript vehicle. I could see Atropha behind the wheel, and Clotro in the front passenger seat. As we approached, Clotro opened the passenger door, leaned forward, and unhinged her seat, so that Latsis […]

18 Merle leaned back in his seat, put his hands behind his head with elbows out, and extended his legs in a relaxed posture. He emitted a long, deep sigh. Then he asked a simple little question. “Ken, who do you […]
Ever-widening cracks are appearing in the Big Bang theory of the universe’s origin. However, the Big Bang theory accurately describes the great majority of cosmological observations, so any new theory should retain many, if not most, of the basic Big Bang components. There is a new theory of the universe’s origin and evolution, called the […]
Everyone knows that Einstein said nothing can travel faster than the speed of light, right? Well, I spent many years studying relativity and cosmology, and eventually I came to realize that Albert Einstein and H.A. Lorentz shared one simple misconception involving Lorentz’ relativistic velocity equations, which stand as the foundation for all of relativity theory. […]
