Does our past affect our present? Will the decisions we make today affect our tomorrow? The answer to these questions is a little bit more complicated than a simple "yes". The link between cause and effect might be obvious to the world, but the extent to which this is true, is way beyond us. Many of us sci-fi fans might've dreamt of jumping into a time machine, and change certain initial events we think, had led to some undesired results in our lives, but in order to comprehend the ramifications of even the smallest of such changes, we need not look further into theories of science fiction. Science, itself have a theory backed up by experiment that indicate small changes create massive ripple effects in time and space. As ridiculous it might sound, altering the outcome of a die, say, tossed in 1995, could perhaps have led to a cataclysmic earthquake, through several invisible connectives of cause and effect! This is what Butterfly effect is all about, the invisible strings of causality that holds our universe together.
Did you know that the mechanism for storing information inside a computer memory differs greatly from a human brain?
What is the shape of the universe that holds so many galaxies and stars inside it? Is it spherical or something more complicated?

In 2003, Grigori Perelman solved one of the most difficult conjectures after decades of failed attempts by several mathematicians before. This article discusses Perelman's contribution and some basic concepts of the infamous Poincare conjecture.
English physicist Stephen Hawking is known for his work on black holes , ranging from singularities to quantum theory of gravity. One of the most infamous paradoxes of physics is the Black Hole Information Paradox, which is a consequence of two contradictory theories of physics . In one of the previous articles, we have understood … Continue reading Black Hole Information Paradox
The incomplete nature of quantum physics makes it open to various interpretations, each of which is intriguing in its own way. In this article, we have discussed four such interpretations and a few other concepts.
One of the most intriguing and awe-inspiring concepts of astrophysics that has intrigued physicists and enthusiasts alike is the mysterious black hole - an invisible object warping space-time around it and exerting gravitational forces so intense that not even light can escape from around it . Read this article to journey into the mysterious world of a black hole.
