The warping of the empty space around a massive star means that the shortest path of light around a star is a 'curved' one — but the bending of light rays in a medium can mimic the same effect. Credit: Sheng, C., Liu, H., Wang, Y., Zhu, S. N. & Genov, D. A. Nature Photonics

It took two major expeditions charting the solar eclipse of 1919 to verify Albert Einstein’s weird prediction about gravity — that it distorts the path of light waves around stars and other astronomical bodies, distorting objects in the background. Now, researchers have created the first precise analogue of that effect on a microchip. Any large mass distorts the geometry of space around it, for instance making parallel light rays diverge or converge. Continue reading

Is it possible that we have been wasting our time typing programs. Could voice recognition, with a little help from an invented spoken language, be the solution we didn’t know we needed? Continue reading
