The creation of this website has been quite the journey. From concept to completed work, it has been a challenging and rewarding experience. It is the most extensive website I have constructed to date, and creating it excites me for future projects!
Much time was put forth into researching the topics covered. Much more coffee was used for the writing portions of the site. Even more time was spent proof-reading what was written, finding things that did not work, and looking for better things to replace them.
It is my intention for this website to become a source of inspiration for those newly acquainted with science (young and old) and acts as a spring-board for their interests. There is far more information out there on these topics than what was presented here, it just takes time and curiosity to find it!
Today I finished the image resources pages for the site. Although all images have the source listed underneath, it is nice to have all this info consolidated onto a single page for each section.
After reviewing the page “Space-time is curved I decided on some re-arranging of the content for better flow. Also, a better explanation of what is meant by space-time curvature was added.
Greetings, again! Head over to the page titled “The Shape of the Universe” for some exciting things! The geometry of the universe and what it tells us of it’s initial conditions excites me greatly, and is a topic I try to keep updated on, as new discoveries on the cosmological constant are always being made.
Stay tuned for more!
Sections discussing the Schwarzschild solution to Einstein’s equation, Minkowski Space-Time, and Space-Time Metrics have been added.
Be warned, a discussion of black holes approaches, and these pages may be nested under other menus on the right once this occurs, to assist in flow of the site.
Some major headway has been made on the Light Cones & Space-Time Diagrams pages. They look great, but I am sure further review will change them.
Spring has sprung and with it, more website ideas! A potential new layout is on the way, along with some exciting explanations of space-time diagrams and light cones. Stay tuned!
Some exciting updates have been made in the “Oddities” section, along with some ongoing work in the sections “GR in GPS”. Good things to come!!!
The updates to the section of space-time curvature has come along very nicely. As always, I will keep looking for information and ways to make these pages more accessible and detailed.
Some updates have been made to the Tensor section, and the first section under Space-Time curvature. Both aren’t near to my satisfaction, but are coming along very nicely!
