A post qualitatively explaining the main ideas behind the AdS/CFT correspondence. The breakthroughs in theoretical physics due to the theory are outlined along with the consequences for how we view our universe.
A longer discursive post, highlighting one of the strangest features of quantum mechanics – quantum entanglement. No mathematical ability is required, with only a little simple probability.
This post is written due as a follow up to my fleeting mention of symmetry breaking in my last post. Symmetry is very simple when spoken of with regard to […]
On 14 March 2013, CERN announced the discovery of a particle with the qualities theorized by Peter Higgs (above) in the 1960s. The discovery of the Higgs boson was arguably one of the most significant experimental results in the history of particle physics, confirming why certain particles have mass and others do not.
