Physicists created Black Hole in the lab that could finally prove Hawking Radiation

Posted By adjectivesscience on Space Physics Space Science Physical Science

Stephen Hawking was the first to propose that not everything that comes in contact with a black hole succumbs to its immense gravity and inevitable nothingness. In fact, tiny particles of light, known as photons, are sometimes ejected back out of the black hole, robbing it of energy. This gradual loss of mass over time means that every black hole eventually evaporates out of existence.

Researchers accidentally made batteries that could last 400 times longer

Posted By scibook on Quantum Physics Engineering & Technology

Researchers in the US have created a battery capable of being recharged hundreds of thousands of times without showing signs of wear, spelling a potential end to electronics rendered useless by dead cells.

The batteries of today are mainly lithium, and over time that lithium corrodes inside the battery.
Instead of lithium, researchers at UC Irvine have used gold nanowires to store electricity, and h

NASA is building an Solar Electric Propulsion System for Deep Space Exploration

No matter how well we think we know our planet, there are always surprises – and a big one at that. The Amazon is the Earth’s crown river. The largest by water discharge, the second by length, its basin covers approximately 7,050,000 square kilometres (2,720,

Now, a new mini disc developed by researchers in the United Kingdom is said to be able to store up to 300 terabytes worth of information for billions of years without suffering any deterioration of

11 Most Amazing Facts You didn’t know about the DNA. | Science Samhita

Posted By vthakur2212 on Life Science - DNA is present in every cell of our body that means it is present in almost 100 trillion cells and the total DNA person in these cells can stretch from the Earth to the Sun hundreds of times. DNA is undoubtedly a long structure, but if you compare its width with your hair then it…

Gravitiational Waves

Posted By SciUniverse on Physics

In physics, gravitational waves are ripples in the spacetime curvature which propagate as waves, travelling outward from the source. Predicted in 1916 by Albert Einstein on the basis of his theory of general relativity, gravitational waves transport energy as gravitational radiation.
