Black holes. Magnetism. Fields.
A new study of supermassive black holes at the centers of galaxies has found magnetic fields play an impressive role in the systems’ dynamics. In fact, in dozens of black holes surveyed, the magnetic field strength matched the force produced by the black holes’ powerful gravitational pull. (1) Magnetic fields seem to be everywhere. It […]
Supersymmetry, “multiple solutions”, interpretations…
Squarks, selectrons and neutralinos may be lurking in the universe, say physicists who suggest supersymmetry — the idea that every known particle has a yet-to-be-discovered sister particle — is not dead, despite the lack of evidence found in its favor. The world’s most powerful atom smasher, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), has yet to find […]
Pedestrians walking. Scientists analyzing.
The behavior of pedestrians can seem unpredictable — especially in a big crowd. Yet a group of scientists has developed an accurate mathematical representation of real-life pedestrian movement. By factoring in people’s ability to anticipate impending collisions, the researchers created simulations in which pedestrians naturally form lanes to walk in opposing directions and slow as […]
Science describes. Nothing more.
A new type of quasar found, puzzles scientists since the current theories do not predict its existence. (1) The process of science adapting to experimental data is so fast that we hardly ever notice the fact that theory comes AFTER observations… Science is here to describe… Nothing more. All scientific models will always fit the […]
