Quantum Entanglement & Spooky Action at a Distance

In the 1930s, Einstein was displeased with quantum mechanics. He published a speculation experiment, According to this experiment, the point at which an event occurs in the universe can immediately affect another arbitrary event, He calls it “ghostly meta-range effect” and thinks it is ridiculous Because it means breaking the limitation of relativity on the

Speed of Light Thank You!

Dear citizens of the universe, You probably know that light can reach two hundred ninety nine thousand, seven hundred ninety two measly kilometers in a second, but did you also know that physics can now reach over two hundred ninety nine thousand, seven hundred ninety two amazing people in a minute? We’ve broken the speed

Will This Go Faster Than Light?

The speed of light is meant to be the ultimate speed limit in the universe. According to Einstein’s special theory of relativity, nothing should move through space faster than light. But that doesn’t stop people from trying. Every day I get a lot of messages proposing ways to go faster than the speed of light.

All through elementary school and high school you grow up hearing about the flat earth we live on and doing boring flat-earth physics homework and then (if you’re lucky enough) you

Why can’t you go faster than light?

Over the last hundred years or so, scientists have pushed our understanding of the universe into some extreme conditions, for example the world of the very small, the realm of very high speeds and the under the frigid conditions of near absolute zero. While each of us have developed an intuition about how the world
