Parallel Universe: We Might Be Living in an Alternate Reality!
With past years our understanding of science and the universe has expanded exponentially giving us a complete new outlook towards it and opening up a very controversial idea, yet an intriguing one: do parallel universes exist?
Quantum Molecules Are a Possibility, Shows a New Study by Physicists at the University of Chicago
Physicists have always wanted to influence and control quantum molecules for success in doing so would result in technology feats like earthquake sensors which can change our lifestyle for the better. It had been a long-sought dream of atomic physicists to bring multiple molecules together in a single quantum state and researchers at the University of Chicago succeeded in doing so. Scientists at the University of Chicago just published a paper on April 28th in Nature, which states a methodology used to bring multiple molecules together in a single quantum state. This success opens doors to many more discoveries and progression in the field of quantum physics. “People have been…
Faster Than Light Travel Is Indeed Possible!
Recently, a research paper was published by Erik Lentz, PhD in Physics at the University of Washington, on achieving superluminal speeds without violating physical laws or needing negative energy. This astounding paper was published in the extremely prestigious journal, Quantum Gravity.
What Is Time? Does it Even Exist?
In the late 1600s when Newton published his book ‘Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica’ he stated that time is absolute and is the same for everyone no matter in which state you are in this universe. But in the early 19s comes Einstein with his general theory of relativity stating that time is relative to person by person depending on which state or part of the universe he was in. Since then our understanding of time has completely revolutionized but we are still oblivious to the fact that what is actually time, is it something very fundamental which exists in this universe or is just an illusion? His theory of relativity…
String Theory in Simple Words
The biggest dilemma of Einstein’s life represents the search of a unified theory. Scientists all over the world are currently engrossed in the quest of a unified theory where we unify all the laws of physics, be it Quantum mechanics or the Classical physics: all the laws collated in one single framework which could predict anything and everything. Currently, we have multiple theories and suggestions for the unified theory but the very promising and compelling one is “the string theory.” What is string theory? In physics, string theory represents a theoretical framework in which the point-like particles of particle physics are replaced by one-dimensional objects called strings. For example, take…
Why Do Scientists Want to Make a 3D Map of the World?
Humans have been creating maps since we started exploring the world, giving us the tools to find our way home and explore the unknown. We've come a long way since explorers marked unknown areas with "Here there be dragons" — we've mapped the majority of the known world thanks to aircraft and satellites in orbit.
83 Black Holes Found at the Edge of the Universe
International astronomers have made an incredible discovery recently that many may not see the significance of right away. Astronomers discovered 83 supermassive black holes on the edge of the universe. There’s a lot to unpack from that simple statement, but the discovery remains the same. After all, astronomers were pretty confident we wouldn’t find black holes in these far-reaching places, but now we have 83. So, let’s jump into an explanation and try to figure out the basics. What Does This Mean? Let’s start by taking apart the black holes. A supermassive black hole is often found in the center of a galaxy, like the Milky Way, and are extremely…
Cosmology – Never Ending Journey
Cosmology is the study of the universe, or cosmos, regarded as a whole. Attempting to cover the study of the entire universe in a single volume may seem like a megalomaniac’s dream. The universe, after all, it is combination with structures on a vast range of scales, planets orbit stars, stars are collected into galaxies, galaxies are gravitationally bound into clusters, and even clusters of galaxies are found within larger super clusters.
The ESA’s New Satellite Is Nearly Ready for Launch
After years of development and testing, the Aeolus satellite is almost ready for deployment. The spacecraft is being developed by the European Space Agency (ESA) and is expected to launch in January 2018, less than two months from now.
Preparing For Launch: An Update on JWST
Move over, Hubble! NASA's currently in the middle of building Hubble's successor as we speak. The James Webb Space Telescope (JWTS) will help astronomers understand the history of the universe using infrared technology and a mirror coated in 24-karat gold! To discover how these function, read on, and prepare to launch!
