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!
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.
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.
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.
Ever wondered what would happen if you had the nasty fate of falling into a black hole or what you would see happen if you were at a safe distance watching your friend fall in? Well read on and find out…
