We don’t know everything about the brain, but we do know some things. First, we know that a large brain does not mean that you are going to be borderline- Tony-Stark-intelligent (or Stephen Hawking, or Albert Einstein, or Marie Curie… you get the idea).
Our view of time, what it is and what it means, has evolved over the years (and one could even say that many of us have a romanticized it and made it into something very unscientific in nature).
Since astronomers first uncovered evidence of previously-predicted black holes, they have seen that it’s incredibly difficult to spot them out.
The Standard Model of Particle Physics: A Lunchbox’s Guide by Dave Fehling The quantum world is notoriously difficult to comprehend.
We’ve all seen videos like this that help us vidsualize gravity, but how does it actually work? Youtuber EdwardCurrent created a video that talks about this.
Evaporation of a Black Hole (Credit: Aurore Simonet) To start off with, this wont be a problem for a very, very long time for any black hole.
Question: In the double slit experiment what is it about observation that changes the way the molecules behave?

This is actually a pretty common question; however, the term “the center of the universe” doesn’t really mean anything.
We all know that humanity has a bit of a problem when it comes to pollution. Here, see some of the most absurd instances of environmental pollution.
Sagittarius A* (Credit: X-ray: NASA/UMass/D.Wang et al., IR: NASA/STScI) Modern astronomers believe that most large galaxies host supermassive black holes in their central region.

Artist’s impression of a black hole (via Victor Habrick VISIONS/SPL/Getty) Since we’ve never technically seen a black hole, we’ve never seen one die either, but conventional thought suggests that after black holes become ripe, they start gradually leaking radiation from particle pair annihilation — called Hawking radiation (after its discoverer, Stephen Hawking) — out into space.

Have you ever heard of Baade’s Window? This is a region of sky with a particularly low density of interstellar dust as visible from Earth.
