Our universe is actually really simple, it's just our cosmological theories that are getting needlessly complex, argues one of the world's leading theoretical physicists.
Tonight at 7 p.m. ET, The Perimeter Institute will be hosting a special lecture by physicist Amanda Peet, describing how string theory is allowing us to study extreme black hole physics in new and fruitful ways.
Dimensions are complicated. Wrapping your head around how many there are can give you a headache. Trace explains everything you should know about them.
The idea that there are an infinite number of universes beyond our own is assumed impossible to prove or disprove -- but a new computer model might give us hints as to what evidence to look for. Continue reading →
One of the biggest and most vexing problems in physics is how quantum dynamics and general relativity relate to one another -- but could both theories find middle-ground in a wormhole? Continue reading →
Just in time for Halloween, we bring you a terrifying pseudoscientific YouTube video, courtesy of a 2007 Wellness Seminar in Bozeman, Montana. (h/t: PZ Myers of Pharyngula -- perhaps you know him by his hip-hop moniker, P-Zeddy.) The woman is attempting to "explain" the "scientific" basis for homeo...
Do you ever get those days when you question reality? Fermilab is building a machine that may prove that "reality" is only a holographic projection from the outermost boundary of the Universe.
Considering a black hole in the fifth dimension, can it eventually become a "naked singularity"? Welcome to the bizarre world of shrinking strings.
