Fear of Physics. Spherical horse in a vacuum, Lawrence Krauss

Lawrence Krauss-Fear of Physics. Spherical horse in a vacuum

Professor Lawrence Krauss has a talent for explaining complex ideas in simple language and communicating his enthusiasm for his subject to the reader. Starting with a funny story in which the horse is reduced to a sphere for simplicity, he quickly turns to talk about quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity, explains why dinosaurs

The heliocentric system of the world: from Aristarchus to Newton

The heliocentric system of the world: from Aristarchus to Newton

For the first time, the idea that the Earth revolves around the Sun arose in the minds of ancient Greek scientists. The founding father of heliocentrism is considered to be Aristarchus of Samos, who was born around 310 BC. How well he managed to work out his hypothesis is not known for certain, all information

Large Hadron Collider- LHC detectors in cern

Large Hadron Collider-LHC detectors

In giant detectors that are capable of reconstructing what happened during collisions, and all this in a very high collision rate environment, the events (an event is a collision with all of its resulting particles) are studied. They can be compared to extremely large three-dimensional digital cameras that can take 40 million “sequences” per second

LHC and other particle accelerators

The great challenges of today’s science require infrastructures and monstrous investments, among which are the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) – the particle accelerator that started on 10 Sept 2008, the most powerful in the world -, the Pierre Auger Observatory – the largest cosmic ray detector of the moment-, the Cassini Huygens probe – the

What is Cosmology? Cosmology Definition, Terms, Facts & Theories

Cosmology Definition, New terms, Facts & Theories

Introduction to Cosmology Cosmology is the study of the origin, evolution, and structure of the universe.  This science grew out of simple observations and evolved along with mathematical theories, technological advances and space exploration. Below is an attempt to describe the universe by one Arthur Dent (i.e., someone certified scientifically declined in space matters). Okay…the

What is the structure of the Universe? Geometry of spacetime

The Einstein equation predicts several possible ways for the Universe to evolve in time and space. What are these predictions, and how do they equate themselves to observation?

How Old is the Universe?

How Old is the Universe? (All Calculations so far)

A Bible-based assumption of a few thousand years old was made by Isaac Newton. Einstein believed in a World that was steady-state, ageless. Since then, somewhere in the centre, data obtained from the Universe places the probable response. First Ingredient: Quantum mechanics In the early 20th century, it was realized that the stability of atomic
