For every type of matter particle, there is a corresponding antimatter particle. Antiparticles look and behave just like their corresponding matter particles, except they have opposite charges. Antimatter particles are created in ultra high-speed collisions. In the first moments after the Big Bang (learn more about it in my previous article Origin of our universe), only energy… Read More Antimatter?
Gravitational lensing is extremely helpful in discovering new things in our universe, how? let’s see that in a bit. Gravity itself is fascinating, when a phenomenon occurs where there is something to do with both Gravity and light, that’s something amazing. From Einstein’s theory of relativity, we know that mass curves the space around it. This… Read More What is Gravitational lensing?
Here’s a quick update… Last year in september, for the first time ever scientists Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) have observed Gravitational waves. The source of these waves were the product of the collision between two black holes into a giant single black hole occured 1.3 billion light years away On December 16 2015 LIGO… Read More “Gravitational Waves” found yet again!
In astronomy, we often hear the word “Supernova”. Let’s see, what actually a Supernova is? Supernova is an event where an explosion of a huge star takes place. These blasts produce some heavy material in the universe including some elements, like iron, which make up planets. Not all stars become Supernova though. So, there are two types… Read More What is Supernova?
Parallel universes are basically alternate realities, where every possible situation happens. Since there are infinite possibilities, there are infinite number of parallel universes. Let’s see, what’s a Multiverse? As the name suggests, a group of Universes makes a Multiverse. The Universe we live in, might not be the only Universe out there. Our universe might… Read More Parallel Universes??
