The photograph shows El Naschie and an unidentified woman at the Einstein sculpture in Suzhou, China on or around October 30, 2012. This was taken on the occasion of his talk about dark energy. El Naschie claims that Einstein's famous equation is missing a factor of 1/22 on the right-hand side.
The photo is from the blog of Mohamed Mustafa, who provides this explanation:
Below we have embedded from the Egyptian daily journal Akhbarelyom an interview with El Naschie by Gada Zain Elabdeen. The title is "China honors El Naschie for stunning scientific achievement; He proved Einstein's theory is wrong and explained a long standing puzzle that had remained for one hundred years".
Elnaschie Discovery 2012 A
Here's Zahy's explanation with my minor edits:
Inside the interview you will find that El Naschie modified the famous Einstein energy mass relation from E = m c^2 to E = m c^2/22.
With this modification the great man can explain a lot of things.
The catastrophic thing in this interview is that the head of the physics department in Alexandria University, Prof. Dr. Mohamed Ali El-Borie, said that the equation reached by El Naschie is a stunning achievement that never happened since centuries. [O.M.G. --Jason] He mentioned that El Naschie had done a favor for Alexandria University in that he raised its academic ranking due to his extraordinary excellent research........
What a shame for Alexandria university. This head of physics department should be fired.
Unbelievable. Yes, he certainly should.
