Theoretical physics: The origins of space and time

“Everything around us — the whole three-dimensional physical world -is an illusion born from information encoded elsewhere, on a two-dimensional chip.” Some researchers believe that physics will not be complete until it can explain not just the behaviour of space and time, but where these entities come from. And to do that, physical theories are going to have to get a lot more strange…

Higgs Boson re-explained

I'm not ashamed to admit that stuff makes more sense to me when it's packaged in a cartoony format. PHD Comics: The Higgs Boson Re-Explained

Many physicists believe that entanglement is the essence of quantum weirdness — and some now suspect that it may also be the essence of space-time geometry.

Atlantic Ocean Floor Map. Groundbreaking map of the ocean floor created by technician Marie Tharp and Professor Bruce Heezen, image via The Earth Institute, Columbia University. Together, Marie and Bruce rewrote 20th century geophysics by creating the first systematic, comprehensive map of the entire ocean floor. This paved the way for general acceptance of the theories of continental drift and plate tectonics.

Theoretical physicist Michio Kaku explains string theory. The most interesting places in universe are beyond our reach with Einstein's theories, and that's where String Theory comes in. String theory takes us before the Big Bang to a multiverse of universes. (Maybe the Big Band was caused by the collision of universes or their fisioning.) Worm holes as time machines...in the memoir, that's exactly what childhood flashbacks seem to be.
