Horizons Could Solve Physics’ Biggest Mysteries, New Study

Nearly a century has passed since scientists broke the Universe. Through a complex mix of experiment and theory, physicists discovered an engine built on the mathematics of probability ticks away below the façade of reality. Referred to in vague terms as the Copenhagen interpretation, this take on the theory underpinning quantum mechanics says everything can […]

How Has Earth’s Core Maintained Its Heat Similar to the Sun’s Surface Over Billions of Years?

The Earth’s layered structure, which includes moving plates, is heated by remnants of the planet’s formation and the decay of radioactive isotopes. Geoscientists use seismic waves to study these internal structures and movements, which are critical for environmental changes and life evolution on Earth. The internal heat drives plate movements, contributing to phenomena like earthquakes, […]

Ultramassive Black Hole Dwarfing Most Galaxies in the Universe

An ‘ultramassive’ black hole described as being on the “upper limit” of how big the cosmic bodies can theoretically become has been discovered by UK scientists, according to a study published on Wednesday by the Royal Astronomical Society. A team from Durham University discovered the black hole using a technique called gravitational lensing, which enables […]

Supermassive black holes can reach up to 1/10th the speed of light, New Study

Researchers have identified a new speed limit for the universe’s most extreme collisions. According to a study published in the journal Physical Review Letters, the “maximum possible recoil velocity” for colliding black holes exceeds a whopping 63 million mph (102 million km/h) — about one-tenth the speed of light. This peak occurs when the collision conditions are […]

New Study Uncovers Quantum Secrets of Photosynthesis

A cutting-edge experiment has unveiled the quantum dynamics underlying one of nature’s most essential processes. Using a complex cast of metal-studded pigments, proteins, enzymes, and co-enzymes, photosynthetic organisms can convert the energy in light into the chemical energy for life. A study recently published in Nature has now revealed that this natural chemical process is sensitive to […]
