Have We Hit Bottom Yet?

Most physicists believe we have already discovered the smallest particles that exist, the basic building blocks of nature. However, this isn’t the first time scientists thought they’d reached bottom, the ultimate limit of minuteness. Continue reading

Black Hole Firewalls and a Warning about Article Preamble

I was asked to comment upon a very interesting article about a recent revelation regarding Black Hole Firewalls, whilst doing so I could not help noticing the context in which the article had been written due to the article’s preamble. The preamble, in a nutshell, informs the reader that the article touches upon a theory which may or may not be true; but if true, will undermine at least one of the fundamental laws of physics. I strongly believe everyone should all be on the lookout for preamble such as this, as the context of article’s content is dramatically more or less concrete as a consequence. Continue reading

Voyagers Phone Home

Two JPL spacecraft are about to exit our solar system, and like dutiful offspring, they phone home every day. Continue reading

Curiosity Boldly Approaches Critical Mars Landing

Curiosity, aka the Mars Science Laboratory rover is going to land on Mars in less than 25 hrs. We bring you the detail explanation of what this is all about. Continue reading

A LEAP into the future

I used to think Kinect was cool, until I recently stumbled upon Leap. The video below shows, a demo of Leap. Leap happens to be not only cheaper , but also more accurate, powerful and smaller. The Leap uses a number of camera sensors to map out a workspace of sorts — it’s a 3D space in … Continue reading

Dark Matter Mysteries Darken

The more we learn about dark matter the greater its mystery. Four recent astronomical observations have cast doubt on scientists’ prior claims and assumptions. Physicists believe that 83% of all the matter in our universe is invisible and very different from the matter in our bodies, in planets, in stars, or in anything else we … Continue reading

New Wonderkid on the block- NanoBiotechnology

This article is about NanoBiotechnology which is merger of the nanotechnology and biology. Continue reading

An Eat-or-Be-Eaten Cosmos- Dr. Piccioni.

Gravity enables life. In a very sparse cosmos, gravity gathers enough matter to form stars and planets. It squeezes stars until they burst with the energy that supports life and the atoms from which planets and people are made.But gravity also destroys its own creations. Astronomers often witness stars and planets being eaten by bigger … Continue reading

Arduino <3

Most of the students whom I’ve met in India, especially those who’re pursuing engineering have no idea what Arduino is, and what it does so here I’ve shared a introduction to Arduino from ‘arduino.cc’. There are also some videos of Arduino projects which I’ve shared, do watch them.  What is Arduino? Arduino is basically a … Continue reading

Discovering life and creating species.

— An article on the emerging field of synthetic biology and genetically modified organisms. Research, I believe, has two facets – discovery and invention. A discovery of facts and the phenomena behind it often leads researchers to create articles/ ideas, either by applying the principles of the naturally occurring phenomena or by developing new principles … Continue reading

Parallel Universes -Max Tegmark

This is the best non-technical article on Parallel Universe (Multiuniverse). It was published in Scientific American (April, 2003). 

The Higgs Field – Stephen Hawking is Right or Wrong?

–      Much of physics is far too complicated for the ‘normal’ person to understand – but explained in the correct way it can all be understood. –      Empty space is not empty – it is filled with something that is similar in a way to the force experienced in transparent water. –      A large object will resist water … Continue reading

Unlimited Bandwidth- I’m not Joking!

 Unlimited Bandwidth  Where we learn that current communication is inadequate for our forthcoming ambitions, and we do not at present have a suitable alternative for the future. We look at precisely what governs the speed of communication, and exactly how slow it is throughout the Universe. We take a glimpse at the evolution of communication. … Continue reading

Stephen Hawking at 70: Exclusive interview by NewScientist

“Throughout the 1970s I had been working mainly on black holes. However, in 1981 my intrest in origin of universe was reawakened  when I attended conference on cosmology in Vatican. The Catholic church had made a bad mistake with Galileo when it tried to lay down the law on a question of science, declaring that … Continue reading
