Some 15-year olds can learn the Schrödinger equation from a textbook. But if the 15-year old is not mathematically sophisticated, you can’t expect to give them a full understanding of the Schrödinger equation in 15 minutes, but you can explain to them why the Schrödinger equation is needed and what it intuitively represents.
My attempt at an explanation would cover the following points, possibly omitting some math depending on whether the 15-year old knows any calculus:
How can there be intelligence without consciousness?
These black hole opposites would spew energy, be impossible to enter, and might even answer some of the universe’s fundamental questions.
Scientists have detected a mid-size black hole - considered the "missing link" in the understanding of these celestial brutes
New evidence shows that the key assumption made in the discovery of dark energy is in error
There is a mystery that has confounded scientists for a century.
A Link Between Dark Matter and Antimatter Could Be Why the Universe Exists
Reversing history from Galileo's time, it is now the scientists who refuse to look through the telescope.
There is no dark matter. Instead, information has mass, physicist says
We've detected puny, stellar-mass black holes. And we've detected giant, supermassive black holes. But what about those in the middle?
If you were to go as far out into space as you can imagine, what would you encounter?
Discrepancies in measures of expansion may point to new physics
The laws of physics imply that the passage of time is an illusion. To avoid this conclusion, we might have to rethink the reality of infinitely precise numbers.
Any theory of quantum gravity is going to have to grapple with some weird time stuff.
