Usurping Quantum Theory
The search is on for a fundamental framework that allows for even stranger links between particles than quantum theory—which could lead us to a theory of everything.

Fuzzballs v Black Holes
A radical theory replaces the cosmic crunchers with fuzzy quantum spheres, potentially solving the black-hole information paradox and explaining away the Big Bang and the origin of time.

Whose Physics Is It Anyway? Q&A with Chanda Prescod-Weinstein
Why physics and astronomy communities must take diversity issues seriously in order to do good science.

Why Time Might Not Be an Illusion
Einstein’s relativity pushes physicists towards a picture of the universe as a block, in which the past, present, and future all exist on the same footing; but maybe that shift in thinking has gone too far.

The Complexity Conundrum
Resolving the black hole firewall paradox—by calculating what a real astronaut would compute at the black hole's edge.

Our Place in the Multiverse
Could intelligent observers evolve in other universes with different physical laws? If so, what would they measure? Cosmologist Eugene Lim tells Sophie Hebden how the answers may reveal more about why our own universe has the laws it does.

Is this a solar panel? I liked the design of the panel very much and would like to know the specifications of the same. In addition, I would like to know the cost of installing the same. Please share these details. how to turn printer online


I like your all post. You have done really good work.

These astute Australian astronomers claim to know that although the stars we see with our naked eyes emit light and radio waves, their radio telescope has detected a different kind of radio wave emanating from some sort of very cold gas which existed before it started forming into the first finite stars. But if the extremely cold gas formed the finite first stars, how on earth is it still emitting the special radio wave solely to the Australian radio telescope? Why could not the ultra freezing...
