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 post thinking about the future of human civilisation and the biggest risks facing the long term survival of our species.
A short post discussing the possible existence of intermediate mass black holes and why we want to find them.
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 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.
A continuation in the series on Black Holes, examining the inner horizon known as the Cauchy Horizon and its implications on space and time.
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 I’ll be looking forward just over a decade and pulling out what are believed to be 10 of the biggest scientific advancements of tomorrow. Hold on tight things are about to get exciting.
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.
