ScienceWorld: Physics – Rainbow Gravity

I can’t wait for the conservatives to response to this.

Reality has both a science and a liberal bias, but not everything rainbow is queer, eh?

The detection of miniature black holes could prove the existence of parallel universes and…

If different wavelengths of light experience spacetime differently, the big bang may never have happened

Answer (1 of 5): Thanks for the A2A, I’ll give it my best shot. One thing’s for certain. I’m a Web developer and not a theoretical astrophysicist, so I can only explain my understanding…
important to note: The idea of rainbow gravity has been around for 10 years and it is not yet accepted by the bulk of the scientific community.

Rainbow gravity predicts that powerful gravitational fields around supermassive objects will bend light (and other electromagnetic radiation) differently depending on its color (which is analogous to its electromagnetic wavelength) or more properly, its energy level.

The rainbow term comes from the fact that if you look at a black hole up close and personal, and if the rainbow postulate proves true, you would observe not white light but a rainbow falling into the black hole.

    Jerry Bosse II about 8 years ago I was telling a physics professor how to see inside black holes – by repeatedly blue shifting probes’ signals

    Nina K Tryggvason how did he respond?

    Jerry Bosse II he neve did figure out how it wouldn’t work – but I haven’t talked to him in years either

    so if we measure light speed by white light, then some other light frequencies would travel faster and others slower than the average of all light?

    Jerry Bosse II all wavelengths travel at the same speed. But the shorter wavelengths have more energy – ergo slight difference in force. A red photon may be trapped in a black hole but a blue one with the same trajectory wouldn’t be. But when it emerges it would be redder

    Nina K Tryggvason thank you for explaining
