Astronomy Photo of the Day (APotD): 7/29/14 – A Black Hole’s Fury


Since astronomers first uncovered evidence of previously-predicted black holes, they have seen that it’s incredibly difficult to spot them out.

Standard Model: An Overview of Particle Physics.


The Standard Model of Particle Physics: A Lunchbox’s Guide by Dave Fehling The quantum world is notoriously difficult to comprehend.

How Does Gravity Make Things Fall? (Video)

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.

What Happens When a Black Hole Runs Out of Fuel?


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.

How Does Observing Particles Influence Their Behavior?


Question: In the double slit experiment what is it about observation that changes the way the molecules behave?

New Quantum Gravity-Based Hypothesis Suggests Black Holes Become White Holes Soon After They Form


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.
