“The universe seems to like talking to itself faster than the speed of light,” said Steinberg. “I could understand a universe where nothing can go faster than light, but a universe where the internal workings operate faster than light, and yet we’re forbi
Schrödinger's cat is a thought experiment, sometimes described as a paradox, devised by Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger in The scenario presents a cat that may be both alive and dead, depending on an earlier random event
The central mystery of quantum mechanics is that small chunks of matter sometimes seem to behave like particles, sometimes like waves. For most of the past century, the prevailing explanation of this conundrum has been what's called the "Copenhagen interpretation" -- which holds that, in some sense, a single particle really is a wave, smeared out across the universe, that collapses into a determinate location only when observed. But some founders of quantum physics -- notably Lo...

This route benefitted from icy conditions – The Ben has been particularly icy at mid-altitude elevations over the last couple of weeks, and the current fluctuating temperatures should continue to see the ice building over the coming days.

Scientific studies prove that when it comes to effective pain relief, there is a very powerful mind-body connection; here are 5 easy steps to alleviating and overcoming pain without the use of harmful drugs.
Parallel worlds exist and interact with our world, say physicists
Niels Bohr, who was key in the development of quantum physics. Bohr devised the simplified Bohr model of the hydrogen atom. He was central to the development of the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum physics.
