New proof for Einstein's GR?
« on: 21/04/2006 21:21:05 »
"The types of black hole mergers predicted by Einstein's general relativity have been accurately simulated in a computer model for the first time.

The new three-dimensional model provides a direct test of Einstein's theory and could guide the hunt for gravitational waves, one of the most elusive and sought-after forms of energy in the universe.

"In the past, we've always shown animations or artists' conceptions of gravitational waves, but now we have Einstein's conception," said Joan Centralla, head of NASA Goddard's Gravitational Astrophysics Laboratory and a member of the team that created the model.

The model was announced in a media teleconference on Tuesday."
