The extragalactic background light (EBL) is pivotal for comprehending the universe. It offers insights into cosmic evolution, matter distribution, and early universe conditions, impacting astronomical observations and advancing our knowledge of space.
Explore the enigmatic Hubble Volume and its role in defining cosmic boundaries. Discover its expanding realm within our observable universe.
Pulsars emit deadly radiation, disintegrating DNA and making them dangerous. Surprisingly, some have planets orbiting them, defying current theories.
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.”
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?
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…
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? Why is it that time always move in forward direction? Is it only an illusion? All your questions on time answered.
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.

Cosmology is confusing, yet extremely interesting! Before we get deeper, we actually got the picture of our universe 380,000 years after the Big Bang. Wondering where did we get this baby picture of our universe? Let’s talk from the start. Our universe 380,000 years after the Big Bang was so hot that all the subatomic particles like protons, electrons were in a state of plasma moving randomly, even light passing through, was scattered or absorbed, which means the whole universe was opaque. After 380,000 years when the universe has cooled and expanded, the electrons and protons combined and formed hydrogen atoms. So finally after moving randomly for 380,000 years, the…
This image represents the inner region of galaxy cluster Abell 1689 and the distribution of dark matter around it. Abell 1689 is an immense cluster of galaxies located 2.2 billion light-years away. Dark matter cannot be photographed, but its presence can be inferred by observing the light from background galaxies…
