A longer discursive post, highlighting one of the strangest features of quantum mechanics – quantum entanglement. No mathematical ability is required, with only a little simple probability.
Today we follow on from the first in the series on Black Holes (#1 Falling In) and talk about how black holes aren’t thought to be that black after all with the idea of Hawking Radiation. The post will then cover how, as a result of this radiation black holes are thought to evaporate and as a result shrink!
Recently we travelled to The Dark Side to learn about mysterious dark matter and dark energy, today we turn to another curious substance in our universe – antimatter.
A technical post exploring simple harmonic motion. Some knowledge of mathematics is required for full comprehension – but don’t let that put you off. We are always on hand to answer any questions.
Today we venture to the dark side in order to bust some myths on the two most mysterious and shady characters in our universe: dark matter and dark energy.
This post is written due as a follow up to my fleeting mention of symmetry breaking in my last post. Symmetry is very simple when spoken of with regard to […]
On 14 March 2013, CERN announced the discovery of a particle with the qualities theorized by Peter Higgs (above) in the 1960s. The discovery of the Higgs boson was arguably one of the most significant experimental results in the history of particle physics, confirming why certain particles have mass and others do not.
Today we talk about the field, a concept fundamental to physics. We explain what it is and how it has transformed our understanding of nature.
Two months ago I posted on how the theory of Special Relativity refutes the idea of a universal present moment. Today I put forward the arguments which seek to push back and restore our intuitive notion of an objective flow of time and the present.
Cryogenics is something that feels like the property of science fiction yet here we are, grappling with a possible pathway to the far future.
