Re: "Unified Revolution" new book by Espen Haug

sorry that was weak field approximation, the exact solution is (weak and strong fields) \begin{equation} r_s= \frac{R_LR_h(\lambda_h^2-\lambda_L^2)}{\lambda_h^2R_h- \lambda_L^2 R_L} \end{equation} and from this we have all major gravity phenomena only from a beam of light. "So if the object is a bla...

Re: "Unified Revolution" new book by Espen Haug

I know u are tired of fysiks, but the Schwarzschild radius is at the center of the world and is normally given as   \begin{equation} r_s=\frac{2GM}{c^2} \end{equation} in other words it looks like we need to know the mass size to find it, plus the Newton gravitational constant (that Newton himself n...

from the article above:

"A black hole is a region of space from which nothing, not even light, can escape"
"Prof Heino Falcke: "We still have to understand how the light is generated""

Able prize: " "to give the mathematicians their own equivalent of a Nobel Prize.""

Able prize NOK 6 mill, 
Nobel prize SEK 9 mill.
NOK/SEK 1.08

"equivalent" ?? so yes must be for theoretical math only, not applied!
