Shock Wave Findings Set to Rewrite Scientific Theories

A worldwide group of scientists directed by the University of Leicester has discovered for the first time that one of the most prevailing happenings in our universe, gamma-ray bursts (GRB), act contrarily than previously believed. The study uses proof from observation of a GRB to exclude most of the current theoretical estimates about the afterglow of the explosions. For Klaas Wiersema of the University of Leicester (United Kingdom), it was handy that he was up in the mid of the night tending to his 3-year-old son, which is when he got the alert that a GRB had happened.

Klaas Wiersema said “When a suitable GRB is detected by a satellite, I get a text message on my phone, and then I have to very quickly tell the observatory in Chile exactly which observations I want them to take and how.” Wiersema also said the study was also significant because taking these high accurate measurements of a quickly disappearing afterglow is very tough from a technical point of view. The study characterizes a great technological achievement, one the team would love to repeat for more causes of Gamma Ray Burst. The effort was worth it and has directed to scientific conclusions that will change theoretical considerations of the afterglows of GRBs.

  1. Yes! Universal matter in the form of celestial objects are receding from each other but that does not mean that space is expanding or Big Bang has taken place. Dark Matter is nothing but aether which is proved to be existing in the published paper "Michelson-Morley Experiment: A Misconceived & Misinterpreted Experiment" available at journal site Besides Big Bang Theory including Cosmic Inflation has been mathematically, theoretically & experimentally proved as baseless in the published paper "Experimental & Theoretical Evidences of Fallacy of Space-time Concept and Actual State of Existence of the Physical Universe" which is available at the journal site at

    Absence of Black Holes means Stephen Hawking has finally accepted that there are serious problems with both Newton's perspective of Gravity & Einstein's General Theory of Relativity because both require Black Holes at the center of the galaxies.

  2. Albert Michelson got the Nobel Prize in 1907 for doing the historical scientific blunder. Yes! It is a fact & here is the proof in the form of paper published in a peer-reviewed journal "Michelson-Morley Experiment: A Misconceived & Misinterpreted Experiment". You could read it at
