Thin-Shell Exoplanets Like Eggshells

Thin-Shell Exoplanets Like Eggshells

Scientists discovered 3 new exoplanets with thin and fragile shells like eggshells. There are no mountains and no shifting of continents in the thin crust of these planets. So, are the freaking planets conducive to life? To date, astronomers have found 4,000 exoplanets orbiting other stars. In our 25 years of chasing exoplanets, we’ve learned that even rocky planets can be very different from our Earth. For example […]

What is a DNA Bending Genetic Photon Tweezers?

What is a DNA Bending Genetic Photon Tweezers?

Scientists have developed a photon tweezer that pulls out individual genes in DNA and shines them with light. Photon tweezers smaller than the smallest molecule are used to fold, bend and shape genes. Thus, newer and more effective mRNA vaccines are being developed against epidemics such as the Omicron variant of the Corona virus that causes Covid 19. What about the most useful tool of organic nanotechnology, the microscopic […]

What Happens If A Black Hole Hits Earth?

What Happens If A Black Hole Hits Earth?

What happens if a black hole hits the Earth? Will the world explode and shatter? Or will the black hole swallow the Earth? But what about the famous Tunguska eruption that took place in Siberia in 1908? Could Tunguska be not a meteorite but a first black hole hitting the Earth? Indeed, what are black holes in the first place, and is dark matter actually black holes? What happens if the black hole hits […]

Super Determinism and Free Will in Quantum Physics

Super Determinism and Free Will in Quantum Physics

What is superdeterminism and free will in quantum physics? Does superdeterminism destroy free will and hinder scientific research? What is the relationship between distance effect and Bell’s inequality and superdeterminism? Does superdeterminism prove Bohm’s theory of hidden variables? In previous articles, we discussed the question of whether there is free will in terms of philosophy and physics. This time super […]

Speedround: Can a train run at the speed of sound?

Speedround: Can a train run at the speed of sound?

What is a supercharger, that is, a train that travels at the speed of sound in vacuum tubes? Will the Hyperloop speedball replace bullet trains and maglev bullet trains? A few months ago, I talked about hypersonic missiles, new generation supersonic passenger planes that will fly silently, suborbital hypersonic passenger planes and Turkey’s efforts to send rockets into space. In short, missiles traveling 2 to 10 times faster than sound […]

Is Faster-than-Light Travel Possible with Warp Foam?

Is Faster-than-Light Travel Possible with Warp Foam?

Did NASA researchers accidentally create warp foam in December and find a way to travel faster than light? So what is warp drive and how does it work? Is faster-than-light travel possible with warp engines? There has been a lot of news about this recently. I also get questions like what is warp driving and is it possible to travel faster than light. Regarding warp engines […]

The Higgs Boson Prevented the Universe from Being a Black Hole

The Higgs Boson Prevented the Universe from Being a Black Hole

How did the Higgs boson prevent the universe from becoming a black hole? The Higgs particle is responsible for the Higgs mechanism, which gives mass to elementary particles, except neutrinos. It is also the particle that determines the value of the universal gravitational constant, together with the Higgs field that surrounds the entire universe. Without the Higgs boson, massive particles, and hence the matter that make up galaxies, stars, planets, and humans, would not exist. According to a new theory, the Higgs boson […]

What Is The Fine Structure Constant That Shapes The Universe?

What Is The Fine Structure Constant That Shapes The Universe?

What is the fine structure constant that shapes the universe? If the fine structure constant that determines the strength of the electromagnetic and strong nuclear forces were slightly different, stars would not form and the universe would be destroyed. The fine structure constant, so to speak, enables matter to be formed at the atomic level. The emergence of atoms and molecules always depends on the value of this universal constant. So who or what fine-tuned this constant? […]

10 Most Frequently Asked Questions About Venus

10 Most Frequently Asked Questions About Venus

Venus is the closest planet to Earth on average. So what do we know about Venus? Few things! Like, did they ever have oceans? Was it suitable for life in the past? Why, if any, did Venus’ water evaporate and the planet became uninhabitable in 1 billion years? We will look for answers to all of these in this article and 10 questions. As a matter of fact, NASA […]

How does the wave function collapse and form objective reality?

How does the wave function collapse and form objective reality?

How does the quantum probability wave function familiar from Schrödinger’s cat collapse and form objective reality…or does it really collapse? Is the wave function objectively real, or is objective reality a statistical or subjective construct? Can we measure a particle’s position precisely, or is even what we know position just momentum reduced to position? The previous “objective […]
