Princeton celebrates 100 years of Einstein’s theory of general relativity

This month the world is celebrating the 100th anniversary of Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity, which shaped our concepts of space, time and gravity, and spurred generations of scientists to contemplate new ideas about the universe. The anniversary was celebrated on Nov. 5-6 at a conference co-hosted by Princeton University and the Institute for Advanced Study in the town of Princeton. The conference was sponsored by Institute Trustee Eric Schmidt, who graduated from Princeton in 1976 and is executive chairman of Alphabet Inc., and his wife, Wendy. One of Princeton's most notable residents, Einstein was a faculty member at…

Study calculates the speed of ice formation

Princeton, NJ: Researchers at Princeton University have for the first time directly calculated the rate at which water crystallizes into ice in a realistic computer model of water molecules. The simulations, which were carried out on supercomputers, provide insight into the mechanism by which water transitions from a liquid to a crystalline solid. Understanding ice formation adds to our knowledge of how cold temperatures affect both living and non-living systems, including how living cells respond to cold and how ice forms in clouds at high altitudes. A more precise knowledge of the initial steps of freezing could eventually help improve weather…
