What if we have no free will? What if we are just systems that move from one state to another in a predictable fashion? Using a tank of ping pong balls, David demonstrates why we don’t need to worry.
Of the 2 trillion galaxies contained within our observable Universe, 94% are already forever beyond our reach
A new model suggests that these subatomic particles may not be so fundamental after all.
Recent experiments have put relatively large objects into quantum states, illuminating the processes by which the ordinary world emerges out of the quantum one.
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.
Observers are powerful players in the quantum world.
In a new paper, physicists argue that axions could explain why the universe isn’t empty
Scientists believe that mysterious dark matter is key to forming galaxies in the cosmos. Now, a recent series of bizarre findings threatens to undermine everything we think we know.
These black hole opposites would spew energy, be impossible to enter, and might even answer some of the universe’s fundamental questions.
The “fittest” quantum properties make the most copies of themselves.
Three physicists wanted to calculate how neutrinos change. They ended up discovering an unexpected relationship between some of the most ubiquitous objects in math.
No one really knows what happens inside an atom.
In a curved universe, no matter which direction you travel in, you will end up at the starting point
So-called “information realism” has some surprising implications
New evidence shows that the key assumption made in the discovery of dark energy is in error
