    the guy that can prove Einstein is wrong better have it published posthumously and shut up or the ghost of James Earl Ray and Lee Harvey are going to return with Barrett 50's and disprove his theory.
    a lot of folks have staked their careers on the big "E" being right and don't wanna end up teaching in the humanities (Victorian romance and the parallels to Bran Stokers Dracula story) department at a local junior college with no parking pass, tenure or medical coverage.

    Worked as a Land Surveyor for 29 years. Systematic errors abound in all measurement devices. Not surprised.

    Both, but in the quantum universe, which one is unknown until it's played.

    :eek: imagine being of .00001 off of a degree and then traveling for light years on that coarse, Bach would be playing be-bop.

    This is one of my favorite books. Since we are making recommendations, after you finish the Feynman series, you would probably like A Universe From Nothing by Lawrence Krauss. This is a great book that addresses the big bang in terms the layman can understand.

    Man, I cannot believe TDPRI has so many Jr physicists. I thought I was the only one.

    I think the public just needs to pick up a book. Lawrence Krauss, Richard Feynman, Stephen Hawking, and even Tyson have books that explain this content in layman terms. Brian Clegg has written some wonderful biographies that also explain his subject's practice in thorough detail.

    there's another Book that explains lots of things pretty well, too, that people would do well to read

    Einstein is like the old gunfighter all the young guys come gunnin' fer.
    I'm pretty sure that just about every physicist is trying to get a notch in his slide rule (OK...I'm old) by finding a glitch in Big Al.

    Ahh yes, of course you are referring to, "The Origin of Species", by Charles Darwin. Yes a classic, which has held up to the test of science with a great theory that is basically biological law at this point.

    I digress, but I could not pass up the open door opportunity.:twisted:;):cool:

    Sure! I'd suggest:
    "Reality is not what it seems: the journey to quantum gravity" by Carlo Rovelli,
    but many others too by
    Lee Smolin,
    Leonard Susskind,
    Lisa Randall, etc.

    Well, if he is wrong then it shows that it doesn't matter because the world/universe hasn't fallen to bits..

    “Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems” by Galileo?

    I like this one too.. Highly recommended for kids.

    I searched, and perhaps I missed it, but shouldn't a thread on a guitar forum, discussing physics and astrophysics, mention Dr. Brian May at some point. :D

    That book still relies on an energy field exisiting though if i can remember right, and was also critcisied by the multi universe guys for so. But i suppose even with them tracing multi universes back and back can still be equal to a some kind of an energy start in the end, so both can still have a 0 start if one takes away the energy from their equations.

    Reminds me a bit like the gestalt phenomenon used with psychology, with viewing different parts but still the ultimate outcome looks the same.

    Yup! He essentially proved atoms exist then deplored all the math that came from that discovery haha!
