New technique for finding distant planets makes its first discovery

For the first time, astrophysicists from Tel Aviv University and the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics have discovered an exoplanet using a new technique that relies on Einstein’s special theory of relativity. Previously, the two most successful techniques for finding exoplanets were radial velocity (looking for wobbling stars – caused by an orbiting planet pulling on […]

Faster Than Light Effect Baffles Boffins

The textbooks say that information can’t travel faster than light, but researchers at Rochester University have uncovered tantalizing evidence that this may not be the case. To put Einstein to the test, they’re planning new experiments based on their work to date that shows that light can travel faster than the speed of light if […]
