=/\= my favorite story today!

as some of you may well know, i personally love quantum physics and quantum theory, so this tickled my science brain today.

since einstein, quantum theory has stated that gravitational mass and inertial mass must be the same. example in equations, the "m" in F=ma was the same as F=Gm1m2/r^2. this has been accepted information for a long time

that all changes today. seriously. the university at ulm, germany has done some extraordinary work and found that there are times when the are not the same. read the article. it is complicated and i cannot easily summarize it for you. awesome stuff.
