This post explains the idea of a warp drive, the problems associated with the classic construction of one and a new formulation which now makes warp drives possible without breaking the laws of physics.
A short post discussing the possible existence of intermediate mass black holes and why we want to find them.
A post exploring the possible consequences of Primordial Black Holes, ancient types of Black Holes born not out of the collapse of stars, but out of the Big Bang itself.
A post explaining the research area of my new PhD – gravitational wave emission from binary sources, their detection and the key insights they provide into the nature of gravity.
A post explaining the fuzzball, believed by string theorists to be the true quantum description of a black hole. The theory seeks to resolve the famous information paradox and eliminate the existence of troublesome singularities at the centre of black holes.
A continuation in the series on Black Holes, examining the Black Hole Stability Conjecture. Asking whether, when black holes are disturbed they return to their stable state after spewing out gravitational waves.
Today we bring together black holes and exoplanets to fantasise over the ultimate solar system with a dark twist.
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.
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.
