    A Metaphor for War: Schwarzschild Radius and Black holes Connie Willis communicates that a black hole is akin to war through the use of a number of metaphors in her story Schwarzschild Radius. Schwarzschild Radius is about a World War One veteran, Rottschieben who is recounting his time in the war to a curious college student who wished to know about his time working alongside the physicist that is attributed with the discovery of the Schwarzschild Radius. Willis uses comparisons such as temperature, what an observer would see when a black hole collapses, and the lack of information that can get in and out of the war zone and black holes as ways to connect a black hole to war. In the story, during the recounting of Rottschieben’s experience in the war his vision is shown to be becoming redder and redder as time goes on, until everything comes to a head, and the bunker…

And people have performed more and more…

  • Sir Isaac Newton And Newton's First Law Of Gravity

    importance of inertial and gravitational properties of mass play in the discovery of general relativity. Well, these are coordinating systems that accelerate to each other, so therefore you need the gravitational fields for the theory of general relativity. Albert discovered gravitational waves in 1916. Space time fabric is a way to visualize the existence of gravitational waves and see how they work. Gravity corresponds to the “bending” of the fabric because the twist of it is…
