Roger Penrose on Mathematical Physics

I’m Roger Penrose Emeritus Rouse Ball Professor of Mathematics at the University of Oxford The subject of Physics very much depends on mathematics and we have extremely good equations, theories to describe vast ranges of physical activity I mean, how particles move, how bodies move going back to Newton most of what we know about […]

Why THE FLASH Is Faster Than You Think! (Because Science w/ Kyle Hill)

You live in the past. It’s weird, I know, but even right now you are living life with lag. The only human who isn’t is The Flash. In the DC universe a few mortals have assumed the identity of The Flash, but they all possess the almighty speed force — an ability to move at […]

Scientists Just Looked Inside a ‘Quantum Matter Fireball’, This Is What They Found

It’s getting hot in HADES… hot enough to create and analyze a fireball of quantum matter. And by HADES, I of course mean the High Acceptance DiElectron Spectrometer. This research facility doesn’t just have a super cool name, the science it does is out of this world, too. HADES is an internationally collaborative piece of […]

What Are The Consequences Of Time Travel? | Life Is Strange Science Deconstructed

Hey there, welcome to Play Noggin. I’m Julian, your brain’s Player Two. Everyone has done things they regret. Whether it’s ending a relationship, walking away from an opportunity, or ordering a belgian waffle when you really wanted a bacon omelette, there isn’t one person who doesn’t have something they wish they could go back and […]

Wormholes Explained – Breaking Spacetime

Wormholes Explained – Breaking Spacetime

If you saw a wormhole in reality, it would appear round, spherical, a bit like a black hole. Light from the other side passes through and gives you a window to a faraway place. Once crossed, the other side comes fully into view with your old home now receding into that shimmering spherical window. But […]

Inside The World’s Largest Particle Accelerator

The Large Hadron Collider… it’s a massive beautiful piece of human ingenuity, engineering and… Wait a minute, that’s not the LHC. This is the Large Hadron Collider. Hey everyone, Trace here on location at the Large Hadron Collider. This is the Large Hadron Collider or the LHC for short. It’s a 27 kilometer particle accelerator, […]
