I've been super busy with school this semester -- no time for Atheist Nexus, sadly!!
If anyone who's around here a lot wants me to toss them moderation privileges to run this group or anything, just send me (Sara) a message! Thanks!

Removed ability to send mass messages to everyone in the group. At 1000+ members, that seems like asking for spam.

Offer still open if anyone active in the group wants moderation privileges, but it appears everything has been going smoothly with all kinds of great discussions without moderation. Fantastic! :)

Looks like a rocket to me.

The problem with that representation of relativistic gravity is that the sphere used to simulate a mass in space-time is itself subject to the gravitational pull of Earth. In reality - in Relativity models, at least - the very presence of mass distorts space-time. It is not mass weighing down on space-time, because there is no up and down in space.

@ Mike: Great photo, but I wouldn't get my hopes up to quickly just yet. : )

Whatever that is, it looks pretty awesome :D
Comment by Fabio on July 11, 2010 at 7:06pm
That's pretty much correct. We know the phenomenon of gravity, but don't really know what causes it. Relativity describes gravity as a property of the curvature of space-time itself. String theory describes it the way it does all other fundamental forces, as the result of the exchange of virtual particles called gravitons. To date the two views have resisted all attempts to reconcile them.

Gotcha Mike. Kind of like I heard in a lecture that the young Universe was like trillions of degrees, but if you were to stand in it you wouldn't get burnt because the molecules were so spread out.

How can a universe "run out" of a dimension?

Good question, Fabio. It's all so interesting! From what I understand, we still don't even really know what gravity is. We know how to measure it, use it, etc, but don't really know what it is.
Comment by Fabio on July 11, 2010 at 6:52pm
Hard to tell from an article, without reading the actual papers, but I can't put my fingers on how they could reconcile that theory with our understanding of time as dimension of space itself. How can a universe "run out" of a dimension? As far as my amateurish understanding of physics goes, time only breaks down at quantum level or at singularity level. Dark energy sounds far more likely to me.
