The equivalence principle in the theory of general relativity is the equivalence of gravitational and inertial mass, and Albert Einstein’s finding that the Read more…

Gravitational Waves are the “ripples” or ‘disturbances” in the fabric of space-time caused due to the most energetic astrophysical events in the universe like the merger of black holes, neutron stars, supernovae explosions, etc. Gravitational waves were first predicted in the year of 1916 by Einstein in his General Theory Read more…
