The universe is full of contradictions, as human nature. There are certainties, but also lingering. A look at the latest news confirms the predictable and strange that might be. Example of certainty: the scientists pay tribute to Albert Einstein with observations that confirm his theory of general relativity, that exotic concept that combines space and time as one thing. A satellite launched in 2004, Gravity Probe B (GP do?(B) equipped with ultra-sensitive four gyroscopes, has just demonstrated in one of the experiments more elegant, delicate and complex physics, Earth, spin, dragging space time with her, as can be deduced from the work of Einstein. You have to imagine it as if it were immersed in honey. As the planet rotates, the honey that is around also makes it with him. Same thing happens with spacetime, said Francis Everett, main researcher at Stanford University, who has spent three decades of his life to prove it.

Example of mystery: in the same month of may where he ratified at Einstein, NASA astronomers discovered a series of ten strange planets floating in the midst of the darkness of space without any stars around. These worlds, situated between 10,000 and 20,000 light years away from Earth, are the size of Jupiter, and represent a new class of planet, which does not have any sunlight to pay tribute or orbit to its around. The team of David Bennett of the University of Notre Dame in South Bend (Indiana, EE UU), speculates that perhaps these worlds have been expelled from the planetary systems, becoming a sort of renegade cosmic. Your number could be even more astronomical, bending of the stars in our Milky way! Source of the news:: 7 mysteries of the universe
