Tell Us About your Favorite Mentor: Or one of Them

My favorite mentor early on taught us that we had to carry on and continue working even when our own bosses and friends had given up. She was all about perserverence and hard work.

We always loved her; event hough she asked a lot of work from us. I think we thought that she asked a lot from us because she knew that we had a lot to offer.

August 2006

"Gravity Gadfly" by Adam Frank

Mordehai Milgrom defies Einstein's theories: he says there is no dark matter

Throughout the years, even though there has never been a way to verify if dark matte exites or not, scientists have believed in it Mr. Frank says.

He points out that Newton's Law of physics is not finished

Milgrom has been working hard wiht his partner Jacob Bekensein to create a new theory according to Frank, which will make the old theories outdated called Modified Newtonian Dynamics!

Wow! What do you think?

Do you think he is right?
