Hello and welcome back to Life’s Biggest Questions, I’m Ron McKenzie-Lefurgey. For centuries, humanity has looked to the stars and wondered what was out there. In recent decades, space exploration has become a reality. However, if we want to really explore outside of our own solar system, we’ll need to figure out a way to
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
Is interstellar travel doomed to remain in the realm of science fiction with faster than light travel and infinite improbability drives? Never mind warp speed, is light speed even possible? Technically no Light is massless and travels a little over 1 billion km/h Since spacecraft are not massless you need energy to accelerate as you
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.
Hey, Vsauce. Michael here. Nyctophobia is the fear of the dark. But there’s another fear that’s more chilling. It’s the fear that darkness will go away. Optophobia, the fear of opening your eyes. Light travels at the fastest speed possible for a physical object. Darkness is erased when light appears, and returns when light leaves.
