- Parallel Worlds Could Explain Wacky Quantum Physics
The idea that an infinite number of parallel worlds could exist alongside our own is hard to wrap the mind around, but a version of this so-called Many Worlds theory could provide an answer to the controversial idea of quantum mechanics and its many different interpretations. Bill Poirier, a professor of physics at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, proposed a theory that not only assumes ...
- Why a Physics Revolution Might Be on Its Way
The field of physics may be turned on its head soon, said renowned physicist Nima Arkani-Hamed during a live lecture from the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Canada. The problem is that in some sense, the principles behind these theories seem to be impossible when physicists dig a little deeper into them, Arkani-Hamed said. The two ideas are also incredibly constraining ...

- The Physics of the Hendo Hoverboard
This hoverboard looks like the real deal – unlike the recent fake hoverboard. Although I’m not exactly sure how the Hendo Hoverboard works, I have a pretty good guess. Let’s look at electromagnetic repulsion physics that it might use. If you read the description on the kickstarter page, it says: “The magic behind the hoverboard […] The post The Physics of the Hendo Hoverboard appeared first on ...
