Mach's Principle: Anti-Epiphenomenal Physics Previously in series: Many Worlds, One Best GuessFollowup to: The Generalized Anti-Zombie Principle Warning: Mach's Principle is not experimentally proven, though it is widely considered to be credible. Centuries ago, when Galileo was promoting the Copernican model in which the Earth spun on its axis and traveled around the Sun, there was great opposition from those who trusted their common sense: "How could the Earth be moving? I don't feel it moving!

The "Dark Side" of the Mandelbrot Set Via Join the Mathologer and his guest Darth Vader as they explore the Dark Side of the Mandelbrot set. Featuring an introduction to how the Mandelbrot set and the halo surrounding it is conjured up, an ingenious way to visualise what’s really going on inside the Mandelbrot set, as well as an appearance of the amazing Buddhabrot fractal. Special thanks to Melinda Green who discovered the Buddhabrot fractal in 1993 for letting us use her Buddhabrot pictures in this video. Check out her website for more information about this fractal as well as 4d Rubik’s cubes, stereophotography, etc

The Battle Between Gravity and Quantum Physics, as Told by Craig Hogan and Lee Smolin It is the biggest of problems, it is the smallest of problems. At present physicists have two separate rulebooks explaining how nature works. There is general relativity, which beautifully accounts for gravity and all of the things it dominates: orbiting planets, colliding galaxies, the dynamics of the expanding universe as a whole. That’s big. Then there is quantum mechanics, which handles the other three forces—electromagnetism and the two nuclear forces. Quantum theory is extremely adept at describing what happens when a uranium atom decays, or when individual particles of light hit a solar cell.

Quantum Physics Overview, Concepts and History By Andrew Zimmerman Jones Updated August 13, 2016. What Is Quantum Physics?: Quantum physics is the study of the behavior of matter and energy at the molecular, atomic, nuclear, and even smaller microscopic levels. In the early 20th century, it was discovered that the laws that govern macroscopic objects do not function the same in such small realms. New evidence could break the standard view of quantum mechanics Quantum mechanics is difficult to understand at the best of times, but new evidence suggests that the current standard view of how particles behave on the quantum scale could be very, very wrong. In fact, the experiment hints that an alternative view predicted almost a century ago might have been right this whole time. And before you get too bummed about that, the good news is that, if confirmed, it would actually make quantum mechanics a whole lot simpler to understand. So let's step back for a second here and break this down. First thing's first, this is just one study, and A LOT more replication and verification would be needed before the standard view comes crumbling down.

Have We Reached the End of Human Scale Physics? Barenaked Ladies: It's All Been Done Every physics student has heard the story about how some prominent thinkers at the end of the 19th century were convinced that we had discovered all there was to know about physics. Only a few years later, all those physics pessimists were proven to be utterly, completely, unbelievably wrong as blossoming quantum mechanics and relativity theories combined to make up Modern Physics. Over the next century, lasers, transistors, GPS, MRI machines, PCs, cell phones, fission bombs, fusion bombs and countless other wonders were the direct result of this whole new branch of physics. In the years since, the tale of the rise of modern physics has helped to squelch most murmurings that maybe, just maybe, we're getting to the point of knowing it all. The most concise summary of the argument I know of is a quote by Arthur C.

Thermonuclear Fusion, Nuclear Reactions The smallest particle of matter which can be exist in nature is known as atom. Professor Henri Becquerel proved that each atom is un dividable particle. Each atom consist of three basic particles; electron, proton and neutron. These particles are known as subatomic particles. → Read More The particles present in an atom are called as subatomic particles. Subatomicparticles can be two types.Elementary particlesComposite particles. Elementary subatomic particles

Revolutionary theory of dark matter The universe abounds with dark matter. Nobody knows what it consists of. University of Oslo physicists have now launched a very hard mathematical explanation that could solve the mystery once and for all. Astrophysicists have known for the last 80 years that most of the universe consists of an unknown, dark matter. The solution to the mystery may now be just around the corner.
