The Big Bang: How the universe came into being

The universe as known today, started out very different . Only after several thousands of years since the Big Bang, did it become fit for accommodating galaxies like the Milky Way.


The Butterfly Effect

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.

Is reality an illusion?

Did you know that the world we experience everyday could perhaps be nothing more than an illusion. Both science and religious theories support this claim - that our world is nothing more than a fake sensory experience fabricated by our subconscious mind.

Black Hole Information Paradox

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

Quantum Physics Part 3: Incompleteness and Interpretations of Quantum Physics

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.

Black Hole: A Bottomless Pit of Space-Time

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.

Quantum Physics Part 2 : Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle

The second part to quantum physics series - Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle and its significance in our daily lives.

Quantum Physics Part 1 : The world inside an atom

The world inside an atom is very different from the observable reality. One of the most famous quotes of Einstein goes "Go does not play dice". This article discusses the introductory concept of wave properties of an electron and some of the experiments that led to its foundation.
