Warped space-time Featured 28 May 2002 Print

Warped space-time

Warped space-time. Conceptual computer artwork of bent grid lines around an astronomical object, representing warped space-time. Einstein conceived of space-time in his Special Theory of Relativity. He showed that space and time are not invariant, but change with the velocity of an object. These changes are noticeable near the speed of light and space and time must be treated a single space-time framework. In his General Theory of Relativity, Einstein then explained the phenomenon of gravity as a distortion of this space-time. Massive and super-dense astronomical objects such as white dwarfs, neutron stars or black holes would produce this kind of severe warping of space-time

Newtons cradle in motion

Newton's cradle. Computer illustration of a device known as Newton's cradle. It consists of a set of balls resting against one another that are free to swing from the bar (not seen) they hang from. Here, one of the balls has been sent swinging towards the others. The kinetic energy with which it strikes the first ball will be transferred from ball to ball, finally propelling the last ball away from the others. As this ball swings upwards, its kinetic energy becomes potential energy. The opposite energy transfer occurs as gravity pulls the ball back down to strike the others. As the balls move, energy is lost to friction until they come to rest
