Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation

Have you ever thought of measuring the size of this whole universe? Our solar system is so vast that it would be silly to think about measuring its size let alone THE WHOLE UNIVERSE, of which our solar system, Milky Way, is a small part.
Most of us know that about the worldwide famous theory of Stephen Hawking, The Big Bang Theory. The whole universe was confined to a single point. 'Big Bang' happened and that single point started to expand and emit lights. This a story of 13.8 BILLION YEARS AGO! At that time, the whole universe was so dense and unstable that not a single object could form. All the protons, electrons and minute particles were moving and ricocheting off each other. We all know that every single thing in this universe radiates heat through electromagnetic waves. At that time, those particles were also emitting light and as the particles were very close, it looked like thousands of light bulbs are flashing together. As a result, there were too much light in the universe and it seemed like the whole universe was of ORANGE color. You may think how the black universe which we can observe now used to look orange Well this is the reason! ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK! . . . . . . . . See More

How Small Is Your Dream ?

To understand what I'm about to tell you, you need to do something. You need to believe in the impossible. Can you do that? Good.
From time to time, the concept of 'matter' is changing. Every new idea or conception would have been like a dream before. But the dreamers? They never stop dreaming. John Dalton dreamt of an extremely small undivided particle. Why does not water admit its bulk of every kind of gas alike? This question I have duly considered and though I am not able to satisfy myself completely, I am nearly persuaded that the circumstances depend on the weight and number of the ultimate particle of several gases.
Then day by day, the dreams got bigger, and the particles got smaller. The smallest can now be divided into smaller size too. Some of the small particles are called fundamental particles. And some of them bound together to form composite ones. Some can be formed in high-tech lab. They are called particle collider. In particle physics, one gains knowledge about elementary particles by accelerating to very high kinetic energy and letting them collide. Largest of them is Large Hadron Collider . . . . . . . .

Dreams

Is that him?
- So it seems.
Is he.... still dreaming?
- Yes. To him, is not everything such?
I see what you meant. This specimen is ......unique!
- Not specimen. They are our creation. Reflection of our true self. They are ... us.
Will he not talk to us? Question our motives? Ask what we want him to?
- Right now, he will not. He thinks us as some lines on a page. No more than some senile scribbles by an inferior 'specimen'
Scribbles, Words, marking on ink and paper.
- He can see us as he sees fit. Words make a wonderful interface. Very flexible . . . . . . . . . See More

The Cat Paradox

When you’re studying quantum physics, it’s like trying to interpret Shakespeare’s Hamlet – if suddenly everything make sense and you think you’ve finally got a handle on it, you probably understand less than the guy sitting next to you with his head in his hands.
Schrodinger’s cat is a thought experiment, sometimes described as a paradox, devised by Austrain physicist Erwin Schrodinger in1935. The scenario shows a cat that may be simultaneously both alive and dead, a state known as a quantum superposition, as a result of being linked to a random subatomic event that may or may not occur. The thought experiment is also often featured in theoretical discussions of the interpretations of quantum mechanics.
All right, let’s make this more understandable.
At its most basic, the thought experiment dreamt up by Austrian physicist Erwin Schrodinger in1995 goes like this: you put a cat in box with some live explosives that have a 50/50 chance of exploding once you close the lid. For your purpose, this is a magical, explosion – proof box tht shows no sign of what’s actually happened on the inside . . . . . . . . See More

Time's Illusion

'Seeing is believing' - this term is quite perpetual to me. Often while changing its form in English exams; I ask myself, 'Do we really believe all that we see? Always?'
Perhaps you're getting a bad impression on me. You might think like, What's with the Philosophy? Still I reckon to start with the philosophical agenda. If you don't get it, then you avoid my article saying, Uh! What's this? The guy's drunk...
Science has different domains of criteria in correspondence with our thoughts. It's quite similar with philosophy only in this aspect.
Time & tide waits for none - as we all know from chalk boards. So, time, a quadrant, is said to be an independence entity. But, what if time can be stopped; could we recall our lost time?
A passenger inside a running train threw a ball upwards & the bus being in uniform velocity, the ball reached to his hand safely - simple Newtonian talks. Now, suppose a guy standing in a platform watched the incident. It would seem to him that at a phase of time, the ball was thrown & in another, it was caught. As we know light rays from it comes to our eyes. When the guy saw the first phase, it had already happened . . . . . . . . . See More

Is Einstein About To Be Dethroned ?

We all know the speed of light, right? Speed of light is 299,792,458 m/s (approximately 186,282 mi/s). Einstein observed that the speed of light remains constant and always have been underpins Einstein’s theory of relativity.
Recently, a team of scientists from England and Canada is set to challenge one of the Albert Einstein’s accepted theories regarding the classification of speed of light as constant, which means that light in a vacuum will have the same numerical value under any conditions. To be exact, it plays a role in models of what happened in the very early universe, seconds after the Big Bang.
But some researchers have suggested that the speed of light could have been much higher in this early universe. Professor Joao Magueijo, one of the theory originators, from Imperial College of London with Dr. Niayesh Afshordi from Perimeter Institute in Canada, has made a prediction that could be used to test the theory’s validity and began to challenge Einstein’s theory in order to solve a physics conundrum known as the Horizon Problem . . . . . . . . .
