Can You Go the Speed of Light?

What would it look like to ride alongside a beam of light? This is a question Einstein had asked over a hundred years ago. Now the trouble was, he couldn’t actually do the experiment so he had to use his imagination; he had to do a thought experiment to figure out what a reasonable outcome

Can You Solve This?

I’m gonna give you guys three numbers. A three number sequence and I have a rule in mind that these three numbers obey and I want you to try to figure out what that rule is. But the way you can get information is by proposing your own set of three numbers, to which I

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

Misconceptions About the Universe

It has been a time of time in which the universe was expanding so rapidly that its parts were far apart For some of them larger than the speed of light itself this time we live now many people are fascinated From the fact that during the expansion of the universe immediately after Anbthaqh into

Anti-Gravity Wheel?

I am here at the University of Sydney where the mechanical engineering shop has built this incredible piece of apparatus for me. It is a forty pound, that is nineteen kilogram flywheel on the end of a meter long shaft. Can you imagine trying to hold this out horizontally with just one hand at this

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.

What the Fahrenheit?!

As an Australian Canadian the Fahrenheit temperature scale has always seemed a bit arbitrary to me. I mean why does water freezes at 32 degrees? Why that integer and what exactly does 0 represent? According to many sources the Fahrenheit scale was defined by setting 0 degrees equal to the temperature of the ice salt
