What if Einstein was wrong?

    That was pretty cool. Thanks for posting.
    Of course, it doesn't matter much when science is being devalued every day.

    Isn't the speed of light relative to the observer?

    Wait! Scientists used GPS to make complex calculations? What could go wrong with that? :rolleyes:

    Good video. That guy had a good way of explaining things. Easy to see why he’s popular.

    Fascinating presentation. Thank you, chemobrain, for posting it. As an engineer, I've had to deal with systematic errors all my life. Skew more than scatter, and the fact that one experiment didn't agree with many should have been a dead giveaway. Was Einstein wrong? About relativity, probably not, but like all scientific theories, relativity is probably incomplete. My son is smarter than I am but he took his PhD and went into sales with it. My granddaughter is smarter than he is. Maybe she'll figure it out. I don't think I'm up to it. And I'd rather be playing my guitar in my old age. Thanks again, chemobrain. That was a good one.

    Time is relative to the observer.

    Michio Kaku is doing a disservice to science in two ways. 1. There has not been enough time for observation and analysis to make a determination about whether this actually would negate relativity or only modify it. Announcing every single phase of experiment, in a matter as public as the LHC, runs the risk of influencing the research and experiment of others as well.
    2. Although the GPS solution is viable, this seems like searching for a solution that proves a predetermined outcome.

    Cool video. At this point, there is probably too much technology based on the principles of relativity to invalidate it as the current working theory. Maybe this could mean that the big bang was a neutrino explosion, since expansion began at a rate faster than the speed of light. Or maybe the neutrinos are incurring some form of quantum entanglement, such as electrons enjoy.

    If he's at a stop light and has a horn it is.

    All science is wrong; it's just less wrong than the science before it, if you're both lucky and good. Relativity is a theory which is consistent with certain observable facts about the universe and which other theories cannot yet explain. Bending light and such. But I mean, even Einstein knew relativity was "wrong" - incomplete - because it couldn't address quantum movement. And...that's where my physics runs out. Anyone seen The Last Jedi yet?
