A personal post with reflections on my PhD experience so far.
A short opinion post touching on the idea of the sense of self, a loss of identity and the reasons behind choice.
Today we bring together black holes and exoplanets to fantasise over the ultimate solar system with a dark twist.
A continuation in the series on Black Holes, examining the inner horizon known as the Cauchy Horizon and its implications on space and time.
How quantum fluctuations in the early universe acted as seeds of structure and eventually led to the formation of the galaxies that we see today.
Contains fairly complex ideas and references to previous posts.
An extended piece on the nature of time as a result of the theory of Special Relativity.
A brief, purely discursive, post explaining the motivations for and success of Quantum Field Theory.
To mark their 40th anniversary, we tell the story of the Voyager missions. Twin spacecrafts launched in 1977 that have travelled further than any human object, out into the depths of interstellar space and are still reaching for the stars.
Today we will present the basics of Group Theory. Group Theory is essential to theoretical physics as it examines the symmetries of nature to uncover fundamental connections and patterns within the universe.
Revisiting the theme of time we explain the geometry of spacetime and explore the special quantity known as ‘proper time’. A qualitative post which includes the use of simple graphs.
