Ever since the discovery of quantum mechanics, “reality” has been hard to grasp, literally and figuratively. The laws of quantum mechanics seem to suggest that particles are neither here nor there. Particles or waves exist everywhere and nowhere at once. Only when...
Tesla chief executive and OpenAI founder Elon Musk suggested last week that humanity might stave off irrelevance from the rise of the machines by merging with the machines and becoming cyborgs. However, current trends in software-only artificial intelligence and deep...

Very bad news for all of us: We will not survive another 1,000 years on Earth, says Stephen Hawking. One of the most brilliant minds warns that ‘we must continue to go into space for the future of humanity.’
High above the surface, Earth’s magnetic field constantly deflects incoming supersonic particles from the sun. These particles are disturbed in regions just outside of Earth’s magnetic field – and some are reflected into a turbulent region called the foreshock.
Lichtenberg Figures can capture a lighting bolt in a glass box forever.
In particle accelerators, beams of particles are focused and fired forward at almost the speed of light. But how are those particles controlled?
What if there is a way to destroy the universe so fundamentally that life as we know it will be impossible forever?
Nowadays, it’s a universally accepted theory that the universe began 13.8 billion years ago with the Big Bang. But did you know that two radio astronomers unintentionally stumbled upon its discovery?
