Einstein’s Special Relativity – explained

September 9th 2020 at 07:25
The theory that rendered Newtonian physics obsolete. A 16 year old Einstein often asked himself, β€œWhat happens if you chase a beam of light, at light speed?” Newton’s laws state that the light waves will appear stationary as both the observer and the waves are moving at the same velocity. However, is that truly theContinue reading "Einstein’s Special Relativity – explained"

Signs of extraterrestrial life on the hottest planet – Venus?

Traces of life on the most hostile planet in our solar system?Image: Pinterest and Reddit An international team of astrophysicists has detected a compound, phosphine, in the atmosphere of Venus which indicates the presence of microbial life. The team of astronomers published their findings on Monday in the journal Nature Astronomy. This discovery puts VenusContinue reading "Signs of extraterrestrial life on the hottest planet – Venus?"

General relativity and gravity

September 20th 2020 at 23:49
What is gravity? How does it work? Does it communicate faster than light to affect its surroundings? image from ESA, creator: christophecarreau In the article of Special Relativity we concluded that light always travels at light speed in vacuum which led us to a bizarre conclusion: even if you chase a light ray at lightContinue reading "General relativity andΒ gravity"

The Standard Model: What Is The Universe Made Of?

October 8th 2020 at 01:09
The standard model of particle physics constitutes all the particles and forces (except gravity) that are found in the universe. We are all aware that the atom consists of protons, neutrons and electrons. These particles are termed as the subatomic particles. All the elements are made up of different number of protons, neutrons and electronsContinue reading "The Standard Model: What Is The Universe MadeΒ Of?"

Dark Matter

August 7th 2020 at 05:54
Not only is the universe stranger than we think, it is stranger than we can think Werner Heisenberg Most of the matter in our universe is made up of something entirely different from you and me( yeah, we are far more insignificant than we had imagined). You might scream now, β€œWait! But I have learned... Continue Reading β†’

Evolution of a star

October 5th 2020 at 02:29
β€œMaybe one day you’ll understand whyeverything you touch surely dies.” These are very famous and very touching lyrics by Passenger. And although I am not sure about the former part, the latter is certainly true. The world, as we see presently, was just a puddle of gas some billions of years ago. The abundant elements...

Exoplanet detection methods

September 24th 2020 at 07:05
Recently, astronomers discovered a planet that orbits its star 60 times closer than Earth does the Sun, rightfully dubbed as Ultrahot Neptune. As the alias suggests, the planet is extremely hot, but surprisingly possesses a thick atmosphere. Another exoplanet made it to the news because of its orbital period around the host star being 3.14... Continue Reading β†’

Solar Cycle 25 is here!

September 19th 2020 at 05:59
The solar cycle 25 is finally here! Did you know that our Sun’s magnetic field completely flips every 11 years or so? It is a periodic change and hence, is better known as the solar cycle or the solar magnetic activity cycle. These cycles are tracked by keeping a count of the number of sunspots...

Can you swim in space?

September 16th 2020 at 20:30
Image: Scene from Passengers (2016) So recently I had this thought for no reason. I mean really no reason at all… I can’t even swim. But still, can we swim in space? Is it possible for us? Let’s check out Well, there’s two options. Air or Water. This means whether you wanna swim in air... Continue Reading β†’

This is a guest post by Utkarsh Sahai. Spooky action at a distance Someday someone asked me what the most absurd physics phenomenon is, in my opinion? I could not answer that time, but now, when I think about it, I should have answered Quantum Entanglement. So what is Quantum Entanglement? As per the definition,... Continue Reading β†’

September 10th 2020 at 19:50
Have you ever thought of – why do we have seven days in a week and why do we have them in a particular order like – Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday? After reading many resources and research papers, I have found something interesting – it has a long-lost connection from astronomy,... Continue Reading β†’
