If the Sun were to collapse into a black hole right now, would we survive? Before we tackle this question, let's get our hands dirty with a bit of the physics behind black holes. Firstly we have to find out what they actually are, and how they were proposed in the first place. On top... Continue Reading →
At the turn of the twentieth century, the solution to a trivial problem in physics led to one of the most revolutionary theories imaginable. Now, more than a century later it seems as though history is on the verge of repeating itself with the realisation that our world, along with the rest of the observable... Continue Reading →
If the human race were to ever pick up an alien like signal, should we respond?
