A post which explains the five main laws which govern the quantum world. The post is purely qualitative and requires no use of mathematics.
A post presenting a scientific tool known as thought experiment. Pros and cons will be given alongside examples of noteworthy thought experiments across the ages. Let’s go inside the mind.
A post about the Event Horizon Telescope and its recent efforts to capture the first ever image of the Black Hole at the center of our galaxy.
The life of a star is brilliant, furious and explosive. Today we will recount the journeys of the different types of stars, from birth until death.
Whether or not we have a free will is an age old question in philosophy. Today we discuss whether we are truly in control of our decisions and whether our future is a genuine uncertainty.
In 1915 Gravitational Waves were predicted by Einstein as a product of his theory of general relativity and in 2015, on the theory’s 100th anniversary, their existence was verified. Find out what all the fuss about and how the long awaited detection came about.
A post which explores whether we could be just a brain in a vat whose experience is simulated. We explore ideas of the senses, dreams and the matrix.
The science behind the spectacular display of the Aurora Borealis a.k.a Northern Lights. This mystical display of colours may be better left to childhood imagination but in the name of science we shall explain its true origin.
Today we have a simple post which will break down Newton’s laws of motion so even the layman can understand them inside out (hopefully). Mathematical formula will be introduced, though no previous knowledge of mathematics is required to follow this through.
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!
