A quantum experiment suggests there’s no such thing as objective reality - MIT Technology Review
Physicists have long suspected that quantum mechanics allows two observers to experience different, conflicting realities. Now they’ve performed the first experiment that proves it.
Time Traveler From 4126 Brought Back Future Technology
In this video, we interview the man who claims to be from the year 4126. He claims to have brought back technology from the future. In this interview, we talk about all aspects of the future. Includin...
Time Traveler Took This Video in The Year 2120
Noah claims to be a time traveler from the year 2030. We met up with him in person as he showed us what he claims is an actual video taken in the year 2120. Noah alleges to have traveled to 2120 as pa...
Quantum "Weeping Angel" Effect Freezes Atoms In Place
The paradox of Schroedinger’s Cat famously demonstrates that a quantum cat sealed in a box is both alive and dead at the same time until we look inside, at which point it becomes one or the other. Suc...
Tomorrow’s World returns to BBC with startling warning from Stephen Hawking
Humans will need to colonise another planet within one hundred years to ensure our survival, according to Professor Stephen Hawking.
Researcher says time travel IS mathematically possible
A physicist at the University of British Columbia created a model that reveals, mathematically, time travel is possible – but we don't have the right materials to build a machine.
Pilot Wave Theory and Quantum Realism
There’s one interpretation of the meaning of quantum mechanics that manages to skip a lot of the unphysical weirdness of the mainstream interpretations: it's...
Iodine Molecular Movie
This movie, derived from LCLS data, shows an iodine molecule moving in the first 2 trillionths of a second after being excited by a laser pulse. The clouds o...

We May Have Found a Way to Cheat the Second Law of Thermodynamics
Physicists created a new quantum theorem for entropy, and included is a possible exception.
2016 Nobel Prize In Physics Awarded To David Thouless, Duncan Haldane And Michael Kosterlitz
They were honored for their work in revealing the secrets of exotic matter. Their discoveries, using advanced mathematics, had boosted research in condensed matter physics and raised hopes for uses in...
A New ‘Einstein’ Equation Suggests Wormholes Hold Key To Quantum Gravity
A new Einsteinian equation, ER=EPR, may be the clue physicists need to merge quantum mechanics with general relativity.
China Launches The First Quantum Communications Satellite – And What Is That, Exactly?

Philosophy of thermal and statistical physics
The philosophy of thermal and statistical physics is that part of the philosophy of physics whose subject matter is classical thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, and related theories. Its central q...
Measurement in quantum mechanics
The framework of quantum mechanics requires a careful definition of measurement. The issue of measurement lies at the heart of the problem of the interpretation of quantum mechanics, for which there ...
Theophysics
Theophysics is a term used occasionally in philosophy for an approach to cosmology that attempts to reconcile physical cosmology and religious cosmology. It is related to the term physicotheology, the...
Thought experiment
A thought experiment or Gedankenexperiment (from German) considers some hypothesis, theory, or principle for the purpose of thinking through its consequences. Given the structure of the experiment, it...
Afshar experiment
The Afshar experiment is an optics experiment, devised and carried out by Shahriar Afshar at Harvard University in 2004, which is a variation of the double slit experiment in quantum mechanics. The e...
