Texas: Ennackal Chandy George Sudarshan alias ECG Sudarshan, professor at the Texas University and acclaimed  physicist, passed away in Texas on this morning.

The 86-year-old physicist was born in Kottayam on September 16, 1931.

The renowned physicist E C G Sudarshan, who proved Albert Einstein wrong, was recommended for the Nobel Prize nine times but never awarded.

Sudarshan specialised in Quantum Optics and linked Vedanta with modern physics. He has proved Albert Einsteins theory on the speed of light was wrong as tachyon can move faster than light.

Einstein showed that it is impossible for particles (or space ships) to be accelerated up to or beyond the speed of light because of the infinite energy required. Sudarshan and his colleagues suggested, however, that if particles were created initially with faster-than-light speed in particle collisions no acceleration or infinite energy would be necessary -- something not possible for space ships.



Sad to hear of the passing of eminent theoretical physicist E.C.G Sudarshan, tweeted President Ramnath Kovind. A jewel of Indian science, George Sudarshan was a physicist, a philosopher and an intellectual of rare calibre. He will be missed, President mentioned in tweet.

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan offered his condolences to the family.

Dr E C G Sudarshan was great son of Kerala and made great contributions to modern Physics. He was a philosopher and a physicist. His death is a great loss for Kerala and world of science, Vijayan told India Today.

Leader of Opposition Ramesh Chennithala said E C G Sudarshan was pride of Kerala and always close to his homeland.

Id great opportunity in meeting him when I was the member of Parliament representing Kottayam. He was a man of great vision and down to earth, Chennithala told India Today.

Former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy expressed his shock over the demise of great physicist, who tagged Kerala with his discoveries.
