How Did Scientists Measure the Speed of Light? UNIVERSE

The speed of light measured in the vacuum is a physical constant denoted by the letter c and has the value (formula): c = 299,792,458 m / s. Any electromagnetic radiation (radio waves, infrared radiation, ultraviolet radiation, light radiation) propagates in vacuum at the speed of light – c....

The Origin of Life – Accident or Physical? | UNIVERSE

Origin | Understanding the origin of life is undoubtedly one of the greatest challenges for humanity. This challenge has inevitably moved this puzzle beyond our planet. Is there life on other planets? Life on Earth is a lucky accident or is life as natural as the universal laws of...

The Dark Side of The Universe ♦ Dark Matter and Dark Energy

Dark Matter | The overwhelming majority of theoretician physicists agree that the universe is not just composed of billions and billions of galaxies, which are the ordinary matter whose interactions are studied by physics and chemistry, but also by a mysterious substance over five times more abundant than ordinary...

White Hole ≡ Trough Wormhole from a Black Hole | UNIVERSE

White Hole | According to Einstein’s equations for general relativity theory, singularities are created whenever matter in a particular region becomes too dense, as would happen in the ultra-dense heart of a black hole. In a recent article published in Physics Letters B, University of Indiana, physicist Nikodem Poplawski...

TRAPPIST-1 | Astronomers Have Found a Solar System With 7 Planets?

TRAPPIST-1, also known as 2MASS J23062928-0502285, is a planetary system located at about 39 light-years of Earth. The main object of this system is a dwarf, ultra-cold, at the limit between red dwarfs and brown dwarfs. This type of star is much colder than the Sun. Around this star...

Colonization † Can We Be Somebody’s Aliens ?

Colonization | The construction of colonies would require primarily basic elements for survival: water, food, raw materials, vital support, energy, communications, transport, artificial gravity and anti-radiation protection. Colonization of other planets has often been the subject of SF novels and films. But it is also a possibility that scientists...
