Watch The First Ever Video Of A Space-Time Crystal

Watch The First Ever Video Of A Space-Time Crystal

German-Polish collaboration has been able to manage the first video recording of the space-time crystal. The structure of the repeating elements was micrometer in size and at room temperature and took one-step further in finding applications for these curious objects. A crystal is a component by .....

Repeating Gravitational Waves Could Reveal The Shape Of Merged Black Holes

Repeating Gravitational Waves Could Reveal The Shape Of Merged Black Holes

Black holes are rather featureless, defined simply by their spin and mass. When two black holes merge, the result is a brief appearance of something that has wounds and turns. Under the right circumstances, some physicists have claimed that the gravitational waves produced by fusion can reveal th.....

Precariously Balanced Rocks Improve Precision Of Earthquake Forecasts

Precariously Balanced Rocks Improve Precision Of Earthquake Forecasts

The rocks look like they will go down if you give them a little stimulus and more than great backdrops for taking selfies. They can help determine the risk earthquakes in an area and whether it safe to build there. The good news is that the part of California where this strategy first applied is .....

Spin-transfer torque

Spin-transfer torque

Spin-transfer torque (STT) is an effect in which the orientation of a magnetic layer in a magnetic tunnel junction or spin valve can be modified using a spin-polarized current. Spin transfer torque occurs in situations where a current of spin-polarized carriers from the left part of a device with.....

Mathematics Reveals Time Travel Is Logically Possible, But Not How To Do It

Mathematics Reveals Time Travel Is Logically Possible, But Not How To Do It

Two mathematicians claim that the heart of travel lies at a time when there is no logical inconsistency, so it is theoretically possible for anyone to travel on time and change reality. Unfortunately, time travelers can be disappointed with the results. If time is only the fourth dimension, then .....

12-Year-Old Becomes Youngest Person Ever To Achieve Nuclear Fusion

12-Year-Old Becomes Youngest Person Ever To Achieve Nuclear Fusion

With a small setup and full talent in his parents ’home playground, Jackson Oswalt has entered the Guinness World Records as the nuclear person in the world. A few hours before he turned 13, Jackson was able to mix two deuterium atoms together in a small tabletop fuse, built entirely by him. A .....

Drunk Earthworms, Frozen Poop Knives, And Alligators On Helium Win 2020’s Ig Nobel Awards

Drunk Earthworms, Frozen Poop Knives, And Alligators On Helium Win 2020’s Ig Nobel Awards

Dr. Ivan Maksymov, a co-winner of this year’s IG Nobel Prize in Physics, has shown that lockdowns do not have to stop scientific progress by getting drunken worms in vodka, putting them on speakers and measuring their vibrations with a laser. Along with bizarre listening, the study is a spi.....

Massive Quantum Networks Might Be Simulated By Melting Time Crystals

Massive Quantum Networks Might Be Simulated By Melting Time Crystals

Near the point at which the atmosphere flows into space, there is an undiscovered region known as the mesosphere or, more commonly, the ignorosphere. The air is too thin to support planes or balloons. Yet, any satellite still has enough material to excite very little. Scientists are hoping to stu.....

Black Hole Breakthroughs Win 2020 Nobel Physics Prize

Black Hole Breakthroughs Win 2020 Nobel Physics Prize

The 2020 Nobel Prize in Physics has awarded to Roger Penrose, Reinhard Genzel, and Andrea Gage for their significant and observational work on black holes. Half of the 100 million kroner (about $1.12 million) prize awarded to Penrose for “discovering the formation of a black hole as a stron.....

First Quantum Entanglement Of Distant Objects Large Enough To See

First Quantum Entanglement Of Distant Objects Large Enough To See

For the first time, scientists have succeeded in creating a quantum mesh where one side of the nucleus can see without a microscope. This represents a major step beyond the involvement of subatomic particles (usually identical subjects) which presents early success in this case. Involvement is on.....

You Can Now Listen To The Sound Of A “Perfect” Fluid

You Can Now Listen To The Sound Of A “Perfect” Fluid

Physicists have for the first time measured how our “perfect” fluid travels soundwaves to the nearest object, in an ideal case where the liquid is only by its density and pressure. This can further help the researcher to study and understand the interior of the neutron star and the ex.....

What Is The Slowest Thing On Earth?

What Is The Slowest Thing On Earth?

In the words of the infamous villain, Dr. Evil: “Lasers.” Lasers focus a narrow, directed light illumination on a specific spot, making them a great tool for shooting enemies from above – from a shark – in the case of cutting, burning, LD burning – or Dr. Evil. These.....
