  • [01] 'Ultimate test' of Einstein's theory of relativity expected in 2017, Greek scientist tells ANA-MPA

    Scientists are on the verge of conducting the "ultimate test" to confirm Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity, Greek scientist Dimitris Psaltis revealed in an interview with ANA-MPA on Monday. An expatriate Greek and professor of astronomy and physics at the University of Arizona, Psaltis is a key member of the team using the Event Horizon Telescope that hopes to produce the first images from the perimeter of a black hole at the centre of our galaxy, as well as other galaxies further off.

    Psaltis said that his team had developed the 'test' to be conducted by the EHT and that its first observations from black holes are expected in early 2017. He did not rule out the possibility that the findings of the new super-telescope might lead to modifications of Einstein's theory.

    The EHT is an array of many radio-telescopes covering the entire planet, with observation points from Hawaii to the French Alps and the mountains of Arizona to the South Pole. When the different readings of these radio-telescopes are combined using a super-computer, they act as a single 'virtual' telescope as large as the Earth, allowing the EHT to achieve levels of magnification that are impossible with individual telescopes.

    [02] 2,276 refugees arrive at Piraeus port on Tuesday

    "Blue Star 1" carried 1,231 refugees from Mytilene and Chios and "Nisos Rhodos" carried 1,045 refugees also from Mytilene and Chios.
