LIGO’s Gravitational Wave Discovery Is Still In Question, But Why?

LIGO’s Gravitational Wave Discovery Is Still In Question, But Why?

In 2015, scientists observed gravitational waves. For the first time ever, we could actually ‘see’ the distortion of space-time as it reacted to huge events in space, like the collision of black holes. This was one of the most exciting physics discoveries of our age, and the team involved were even awarded the Nobel Prize […]

[FDR]: So first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. Nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed us to convert retreat into advance. Yesterday, December 7, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by […]

This Superheavy Atom Factory Is Pushing the Limits of the Periodic Table

Inside this labyrinth of pipes and chambers, superheavy elements are being fused into existence. This machine is part of an international hunt to unlock the mysteries of this new class of elements that typically don’t exist here on Earth. Pushing these element discoveries really is pushing into models of how matter is formed in the […]

How Scientists Are Hunting for the Universe’s First Stars

How Scientists Are Hunting for the Universe’s First Stars

Looking through a telescope is like looking back in time. Because light has a finite speed limit, the farther away you look, the deeper into the past you see. With radio telescopes we can even see the universe as it was just after the big bang, nearly 13.8 billion years ago. But after that early […]

Black Holes Explained – From Birth to Death

Black Holes Explained – From Birth to Death

Black holes are one of the strangest things in existence. They don’t seem to make any sense at all. Where do they come from… …and what happens if you fall into one? Stars are incredibly massive collections of mostly hydrogen atoms that collapsed from enormous gas cloud under their own gravity. In their core, nuclear […]

Spirit Science 7 ~ Dimensions

At the end of Lesson 6, I showed some really cool geometrically perfect crop circles in the FLOWER OF LIFE form Most people didn’t like that or care, but instead, so instead, I offer you this: This intense drawing was done by Leonardo Da Vinci, proving that he actually studied the FLOWER OF LIFE form […]
