How Everything in Physics Fits Together – Map

Unless you have an innate knowledge of physics, it’s pretty hard to figure out how all the concepts and theories fit together

Physics is a huge, complex field. It also happens to be one of the most fascinating, dealing with everything from black holes and wormholes to quantum teleportation and gravitational waves.

But unless you have an innate knowledge of the field, it’s pretty hard to figure out how all these concepts actually fit together.

After all, everyone is constantly trying to prove Einstein wrong, and Stephen Hawking famously struggled to come up with a ‘theory of everything’, so it’s easy to get confused about how things do actually fit together in physics (if at all).

YouTuber Dominic Walliman has created a map that shows how the many branches of physics link together, from the earliest days of classical physics and Isaac Newton, all the way through to Einstein’s relativity and quantum physics (with a little bit of philosophy thrown in there for good measure).

Uncover Narwhal Secrets

Millions of nerve endings in the tusk that suggest it’s a sophisticated sensor

The narwhal is famous for the long ivory tusk that spirals up to 9 feet forward from its face.

Research supported by WWF has revealed some amazing things – like millions of nerve endings in the tusk that suggest it’s a sophisticated sensor. Now new research shows narwhals appearing to use their tusks for a purpose never before documented. Continue reading “Uncover Narwhal Secrets”

Earth Overshoot Day: As Of Aug 8Th, The World Has Used A Year’s Worth Of Resources

Earth Overshoot Day

Our reserves are being depleted faster than they can be built back up.

August 8th 2016, according to the environmental think tank the Global Footprint Network, is Earth Overshoot Day the day that we’ve used up as many natural resources as we can replenish in a single year.
