In the Breaking Bad Series Would a Large Electro Magnet Turnover a Truck?

In the breaking bad series some information that needs to be erased is erased by a large electromagnet on the back of a lorry. This would be overkill if the magnet and laptop were in the same room but as the laptop is on the other side of a wall in a police office this [...]

Is light made up of waves or particles?

Is light made up of waves or particles? This question has been around for ages. Photons which are particles of light are said to be both particles and waves by quantum theory. Physicists from the University of Bristol have backed up the quantum theory with a new demonstration using a new piece of equipment. This [...]

An Experiment Using Gravity to Find out Where All the Antimatter Is.

The universe seems to have no antimatter. Antimatter is needed to balance the matter that is all around us. Physicists at the University of California have decided to try and find out why antimatter method behaves differently in gravity than matter and this may answer the missing antimatter question. The antimatter version of the electron [...]

Higgs Boson or God Particle May Explain the Size of the Universe

This particle could explain a lot of things but could it explain the size of the universe? This particle mainly explains why most particles possess mass. This and the verification of the data by the Planck satellite would clear up a few questions about the universe’s past and future. The universe wasn’t born correctly. Because [...]

How to Measure the Atmosphere of Another Planet

So how do scientists find out what is in an atmosphere? Yes, this can be really interesting because when an extrasolar planet that is earth like is found in would be nice to find out if it could support life by looking at its atmosphere and the way it is made up. Obviously a nice [...]

Plate Tectonics, Hold on! The Surface of the Earth Moves

So why do mountain ranges form, earthquakes happen, volcanoes erupt and Islands appear? Have they been here since the beginning of time perhaps created by a roving asteroid or comet Or perhaps there was a massive collision of  two planets when the Earth got formed creating islands and mountains. This is all complete rubbish of [...]

Strings To The Mother Or Magic Theory, What Is String Theory, M Theory & P Branes?

A long time back I explored quantum physics. I thought my head might explode doing that. but here I am today just about to explore string theory, which will, I am sure, push me closer again to boiling point. String theory doesn’t sound so bad does it? We all know what a theory is and [...]

Solar Power Beamed To Earth From Space?

There are many renewable, green sources of energy one of them being solar power.  This  can be taken 1 step further by having the solar panels put into space. Obviously that requires a little more, OK a lot more effort than the words imply but would be worth it. There are benefits to outsourcing solar [...]

The Ins & Outs Of Being frozen & Then Possibly Revived.

Your eyes open you’re feeling cold and everything looks unfamiliar. Oh yes, I remember now. I was cryogenically frozen. That money that I had paid them doesn’t seem like a waste I wonder if I can take that trip to Mars I always wanted to do or perhaps even further? I wonder if there is [...]

Are We Computer Simulated 1′s and 0′s?

Day to Day we don’t think about driving the car or eating that curry while watching our favourite film. Our senses tell us what is around us and their inputs are trying to form a picture of our universe around us. Most people will not give a second thought to questioning these inputs and thinking [...]

Nuclear Fusion and Its Future Uses In Spacecraft

I was getting confused about fusion and fission the other day. Is there a difference? Yes, there is looking at fission it’s like the difference between chalk and cheese, one is nice and cuddly the other is prickly and unfriendly. Fission is the unfriendly one and is the one used in nuclear power stop. The [...]

Paradox Or Not?

Paradox is such a great looking word that I couldn’t resist it. I must be a little odd or should I say weird but I just love the X at the end and the way it sounds. Just don’t get me going about paradoxical! So what is a paradox? A paradox is a statement that [...]

The Singularity And How We May Get There

So what is this singularity? Is it the singularity that is found near a black hole?  Well, this is a gravitational singularity but it is not the one I’m on about at the moment. The idea for the name of the singularity that I am talking about now actually came from the gravitational singularity as [...]

Not Faster Than Light But Fast Light, Is It Possible?

Light is one of those things that you take for granted just switching on a switch or, if you are a caveman, lighting a fire. It appears almost instantaneously as that switch clicks or fire bursts into life. But, you know what I’m going to say don’t you, it’s not that simple. It takes time [...]

Blow Up Your Brain With Quantum Physics, Or Perhaps Not?

Quantum theory is bizarre and daft and if somebody told me about this in the pub then I would laugh them outside,  and then drown myself in beer.  In order to try and understand, we need to forget everything we know about what causes things to happen and what effects are caused. You also need to [...]

What Are We And The Universe Made Out Of?

Have you ever looked at something and wondered what it was made out of? Why should you? Well it might be a nice fact to know to impress your neighbours or perhaps your friends or even the butcher. Then again it might just be interesting.  Everybody learns about molecules and atoms at school and in [...]

Is Nothing Nothing Or Something?

I was tempted just to post a blank page, but that still wouldn’t have been nothing and would have been cheating. So here we go… Let’s say you walk into a room and there is “nothing in it” — no objects of any kind, no furniture and no people. It’s just four walls, a ceiling [...]

Super Human Future Senses.

I am looking at my curtains.  Now what colour are they really?  I would say that they were brown but brown is a name that we have just paired with that particular reaction in my eye. The good thing is that if I asked somebody else they will say that that curtain is brown as [...]

Food Pipe

There are a lot of people in this world that just can’t get enough food. Now that isn’t something that I lose sleep over every night but it just isn’t really a nice thing if you start to think about it. There are a lot of adverts and a lot of ways that you can [...]
