When we look at the moon in the night sky, all the time we only see one side of the moon. We on Earth never get to see the far side or the dark side of the moon! Ever thought why? Well… Let’s see why? the Moon makes one revolution around the Earth about every 29… Read More Dark side of the moon!!!
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?
The idea of a space elevator has been around for over a century. Using an elevator is a very basic idea of getting into Space. Rockets are incredibly inefficient because they need huge amounts of power to get off the ground, using up most of their fuel fighting against inertia and atmospheric drag. Space elevator… Read More Space Elevator! Possible?
Are you just resting and reading this right now? Even then, you are moving with a great speed! By now you might have guessed what I am gonna talk about “The earths rotation”. Let’s go deep into space… Let’s start small, as you move from the earths equator to the poles your rotation speed decreases.… Read More What’s your speed right now?
For so long, scientists were trying hard to find the evidence for Gravitational waves, predicted by Einstein over a 100 years ago, in his “Theory of Relativity”. Finally, scientists at LIGO( Laser Interferometer Gravitational Waves Observatory) detected Gravitational Waves. Scientists estimate, about 1.3 billion years ago, two black holes collided at half the speed of light. Which resulted in… Read More Epic moment in science( Discovery of Gravitational Waves)
Time dilation leads us to time travel!! Sounds great, but kinda weird to explain. Your concept of relative speeds doesn’t work here. If you and superman are flying with the same speed, then with respect to you, the superman is at rest. This isn’t the case with light, as long as your speed is less… Read More Move back and forth in time( TIME DILATION)
