Einstein was searching for String Theory. It not only reconciles General Relativity to Quantum Mechanics, but it reconciles Science and the Bible as well. Votes: 4

Quantum Mechanics and General Relativity are both accepted as scientific fact even though they're mutually exclusive. Albert Einstein spent the second half of his life searching for a unifying truth that would reconcile the two. Votes: 4

The star S0-2 orbits around Sgr A* every 16 years and will go through its closest approach in 2018. That's an opportunity to test Einstein's General Relativity theory through very precise measurements of this star's short period orbit. Votes: 4

The media thinks that only the cutting edge of science, the very latest controversies, are worth reporting on. How often do you see headlines like 'General Relativity still governing planetary orbits' or 'Phlogiston theory remains false'? By the time anything is solid science, it is no longer a breaking headline. Votes: 4

One of the most exciting things about dark energy is that it seems to live at the very nexus of two of our most successful theories of physics: quantum mechanics, which explains the physics of the small, and Einstein's Theory of General Relativity, which explains the physics of the large, including gravity.

Einstein's theory of General Relativity has a mathematical structure very similar to Yang-Mills theory. Votes: 3

Einstein, my upset stomach hates your theory [of General Relativity]âit almost hates you yourself! How am I to' provide for my students? What am I to answer to the philosophers?!! Votes: 3

String theory is the most developed theory with the capacity to unite general relativity and quantum mechanics in a consistent manner. I do believe the universe is consistent, and therefore I do believe that general relativity and quantum mechanics should be put together in a manner that makes sense. Votes: 3

No matter how hard you try to teach your cat general relativity, you're going to fail. Votes: 2

I always found it satisfying that gravity was described by Einstein's geometric theory of general relativity. Votes: 2

General relativity predicts that time ends inside black holes because the gravitational collapse squeezes matter to infinite density. Votes: 2

The real reason why general relativity is widely accepted is because it made predictions that were borne out by experimental observations. Votes: 2

The math of quantum mechanics and the math of general relativity, when they confront one another, they are ferocious antagonists and the equations don't work. Votes: 2

When general relativity was first put forward in 1915, the math was very unfamiliar to most physicists. Now we teach general relativity to advanced high school students. Votes: 2

We have to have a combination of general relativity that describes the warping of space and time, and quantum physics, which describes the uncertainties in that warping and how they change. Votes: 2

What you can show using physics, forces this universe to continue to exist. As long as you're using general relativity and quantum mechanics you are forced to conclude that God exists. Votes: 2

So what I'm saying is why don't we think about changing Schrodinger's equation at some level when masses become too big at the level that you might have to worry about Einstein's general relativity. Votes: 2

General relativity is the cornerstone of cosmology and astrophysics. It has also provided the conceptual basis for string theory and other attempts to unify all the forces of nature in terms of geometrical structures. Votes: 2

In Einstein's general relativity the structure of space can change but not its topology. Topology is the property of something that doesn't change when you bend it or stretch it as long as you don't break anything. Votes: 2

I became interested in this question of whether you can build wormholes for interstellar travel. I realized that if you had a wormhole, the theory of general relativity by itself would permit you to go backward in time. Votes: 2

Gravitational waves will bring us exquisitely accurate maps of black holes - maps of their space-time. Those maps will make it crystal clear whether or not what we're dealing with are black holes as described by general relativity. Votes: 2

In the context of general relativity, space almost is a substance. It can bend and twist and stretch, and probably the best way to think about space is to just kind of imagine a big piece of rubber that you can pull and twist and bend. Votes: 2

Most of what Einstein said and did has no direct impact on what anybody reads in the Bible. Special relativity, his work in quantum mechanics, nobody even knows or cares. Where Einstein really affects the Bible is the fact that general relativity is the organizing principle for the Big Bang. Votes: 2

Reality becomes illusory and observer-oriented when you study general relativity. Or Buddhism. Or get drafted. Votes: 0

It is almost impossible to have a baseless snobbish opinion of the General Theory of Relativity. Votes: 0

[John Wheeler] rejuvenated general relativity; he made it an experimental subject and took it away from the mathematicians Votes: 0

When forced to summarize the general theory of relativity in one sentence: Time and space and gravitation have no separate existence from matter. Votes: 0

Asked in 1919 whether it was true that only three people in the world understood the theory of general relativity, [Eddington] allegedly replied: 'Who's the third? Votes: 0

The scientists often have more unfettered imaginations than current philosophers do. Relativity theory came as a complete surprise to philosophers, and so did quantum mechanics, and so did other things. Votes: 3 Robert Nozick
