In around a decade Einstein single-handedly smashed Newton’s views on gravity which had been dominant in physics for a few centuries. By doing so he presented to the world a completely new and a very in-depth theory of gravity. Physicists have since been impressed by the elegance of the theory and its numerous implications for […]Read more "String Theory – part 10: Quantum Geometry"
cover credit: pinterest.com In his Special and General theories of Relativity Einstein resolved two of the three main conflicts in physics. And his theories radically changed our understanding of the Universe. String Theory, in turn, allowed physicists to find the resolution to the third contradiction which had remained, arguably, the most important and most challenging […]Read more "String Theory – part 8: Hidden Dimensions"
The Standard Model of particle physics describes all elementary particles as point-like objects. Hence, they neither extend in any direction nor possess any internal structure. Despite its tremendous success in predicting any physical phenomena in particle physics, we can be sure that it is incomplete since it describes only three interactions, leaving gravitational interaction behind. […]Read more "String Theory – part 6: The Basic Principles"
You and Jim are a little bit tired after all those experiments you conducted in order to test Special and General Relativity and are now looking for a bar here on Earth. You have finally found something called ‘H-bar’ which promises you a unique experience unlike anything you have ever encountered before. Of course, you […]Read more "String Theory – part 4: Quantum Mechanics – the World of Weirdness"
The Main Conflict of the XX Century Physics The tremendous success of physics during the last century is based on two theories put forward in the first quarter of the XX century. One of them is Einstein’s General Relativity, which describes the Universe on a large scale: from planets to stars, galaxies and galaxy clusters […]Read more "String Theory – part 1: Following Einstein’s Dream"
There is a power in our solar system. A hidden, unseen power that has shaped our Solar System and I don’t mean the Free Masons or the Illuminati! This force has helped make life on Earth possible, and lies at the very foundation of our stellar neighbourhood. The power I am talking about is not […]Read more "The secret power of resonances"
Contrary to what the name Dark Energy may suggest, it is not associated with dark mystical force possessed by some Dark Lord. It is not as deadly as Malekith’s Aether which means it doesn’t want to destroy the galaxies, its just making the communication between the galaxies harder by pulling them apart. Then the question […]Read more "Vacuum Energy as a candidate for Dark Energy"
