  • The True Nature of Matter and Mass-Space Time

    Are matter, mass, and time real? We know that mass is energy… but what is energy? And where did matter and time even come from? Matt begins to dive into these intricate topics by first examining what inertial mass is, how it relates to gravitational mass, and what it all means for mass as a fundamental property. Enjoy and share…..

  • This will Blow Your Mind

    From nano-metres to billions of light years. What if the universe was actually just in a constant cycle. Where the universe was constantly expanding and contracting. As the universe expands, the force of the explosion will eventually dissipate and the universe won’t expand anymore. That’s when gravity slowly starts bringing all the gas, rocks, stars, and Galaxies towards each other till eventually they go right back into that big ball of matter. The gravity is so strong that all matter […]

  • Gamma-Ray Bursts

    Gamma-ray bursts are not only incredible to study, but their discovery has an epic story all its own. Today Phil takes you through some Cold War history and then dives into what we know. Bursts come in two rough varieties: Long and short. Long ones are from hypernovae, massive stars exploding, sending out twin beams of matter and energy. Short ones are from merging neutron stars. Both kinds are so energetic they are visible for billions of light years, and […]

  • Closest Potentially Habitable Exoplanet Ever Discovered

    Closest Potentially Habitable Exoplanet Ever Discovered

    The astronomers who found it think the planet is rocky and resides within the habitable zone,close enough to its host star to host liquid water, but not so close the water all evaporates. At just 14 light years away, it’s the closest potentially habitable exoplanet. Lead study author, Duncan Wright, an astronomer at the University of New South Wales, said in a press release. “It is a particularly exciting find because all three planets are of low enough mass to […]

    Clear to cloudy hot Jupiters

    This video shows an artist’s impression of the ten hot Jupiter exoplanets studied by David Sing and his colleagues. From top left to lower left these planets are WASP-12b, WASP-6b, WASP-31b, WASP-39b, HD 189733b, HAT-P-12b, WASP-17b, WASP-19b, HAT-P-1b and HD 209458b. The images are to scale with each other. HAT-P-12b, the smallest of them, is approximately the size of Jupiter, while WASP-17b, the largest planet in the sample, is almost twice the size. The planets are also depicted with a […]

    Blazar Bonanza

    A long time ago in a galaxy half the universe away, a flood of high-energy gamma rays began its journey to Earth. When they arrived in April, NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope caught the outburst, which helped two ground-based gamma-ray observatories detect some of the highest-energy light ever seen from a galaxy so distant. Astronomers had assumed that light at different energies came from regions at different distances from the black hole. Gamma rays, the highest-energy form of light, were […]
