aether – liquid spacetime - general relativity – quantum mechanics – dynamic viscosity – universe density – Einstein – Planck – Maupertuis - Fermat.
Recent experimental measurements performed by American satellite Gravity Probe B showed that Einstein space time warped and pulled by earth movement. This important result could signify that Einstein space time exhibits a viscous behavior. Moreover, in a recent publication, T. Padmanabhan demonstrated that general relativity and Navier-Stokes equations can be identical. In this paper we tried to apply fluid mechanics approach to both general relativity and quantum mechanics. Considering that space time is a liquid (the old aether), we found that a single dynamic viscosity value can be calculated from both Einstein general relativity and Planck equations. Surprisingly, space time appeared to be a highly viscous liquid. Calculations of stresses produced by bodies at both atomic and astronomic levels appeared to be coherent if universe density is greater than critical density meaning that universe could have a spherical shape. Finally, a generalized form of Maupertuis/Fermat principle is proposed giving a unified theory of physics.
