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 inner horizon known as the Cauchy Horizon and its implications on space and time.
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…
Entropy is the level of disorder – but that definition can lead to some misleading ideas. Sometimes it is easier to think of it as being the tendency for things to wander over time. I hate to use this phrase, but it is a tendency towards randomness.
Happy Sunday my friends. Over the last week the science community has been buzzing. In many many ways this is great… I love it when the front page of newspapers are […]
This post is to serve as a recommendation to anyone who might not have yet caught the Reith Lectures for 2016 – because they are well worth it. I was […]
Black holes have been a source of fascination for physicists and science generalists for years. There is no way to actually observe what happens in a black hole, due to […]
