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.

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.

Defining a ‘quantum clock’ and a 'quantum ruler' could help those attempting to unify physics—and solve the mystery of vanishing time.

Emergent Quantum Mechanics--Special Edition
Special edition of the podcast recorded at the Emergent Quantum Mechanics meeting in London. Zeeya and Brendan chat to Nicolas Gisin, who argues that real numbers are not really real--and why that means that even classical physics is indeterministic, and the future is open. By contrast, Emily Adlam makes the case for a deterministic 'Sudoku Universe.' We have tips for the new essay contest, asking "What is Fundamental?" FQXi and the Fetzer Franklin Fund launch a new large grant round, on Agency in the Physical World, as Anthony Aguirre and Jan Wallaczek explain. And fine-tuning quantum theory, with Matt Leifer.

This answer can be answered only by a student who has taken science as the main subject. Most of us might have played Sudoku, but we might not have finished the game on our own so far. Please share the details of it here. printer driver is unavailable


In our school, we all might have learned real numbers and how it is used to solve the problems. Some students might have even thought why these real numbers are not real. There is no answer to such questions as we itself don’t know. chrome keeps crashing windows 10


Edward Witten, in an interview with WIRED ___ https://www.wired.com/story/a-physicists-physicist-ponders-the-nature-of-reality/ ____ said "It from qubit" in natural language.

But a computer scientist would know that a software engineer versed in "formal specification languages"-- which are abstract programming tools used to specify what the real time programmers in assembly language should write-- might want to translate such a statement in natural language into an equation in a formal...
