Brain is a Quantum Computer

Brain is a Quantum Computer

The laws of quantum mechanics prove that information can exist even in empty space . Quantum entanglement (connection between pairs or groups of particles) supposes that all information in our brain (i.e. our soul)...

Was the Origin of Life a Fluke? Or Was It Physics?

Was the Origin of Life a Fluke? Or Was It Physics?

Understanding the origin of life is arguably one of the most compelling quests for humanity. This quest has inevitably moved beyond the puzzle of life on Earth to whether there’s life elsewhere in the...

“Andromeda Once Flew Past Our Milky Way Galaxy At Close Range” –New Discovery Upends Einstein’s Theory of Gravity

“If Einstein’s gravity were correct, our galaxy would never come close enough to Andromeda to scatter anything that fast,” said Hongsheng Zhao, Reader in the School of Physics and Astronomy. If true, the discovery...

The bizarre physics of fire ants

Red imported fire ants are regarded as pests throughout the Southern US, where they’ve thrived since they were inadvertently introduced from South America in the 1930s or ’40s.

The Impossible Physics of Faster-Than-Light Travel

The Impossible Physics of Faster-Than-Light Travel

Here in the real world, we have to obey the laws of physics. And physics is very strict about nothing moving faster than the speed of light. Or is it? While the laws of...
