Illusions of Grandeur?

Illusions of Gravity Three spatial dimensions are visible all around us–up/down, left/right, forward/backward. Add time to the mix, and the result is a four-dimensional blending of space and time known as spacetime. Thus, we live in a four-dimensional universe. Or … Continue reading

Stringy Geometry

fancier way of saying that is that in general, it’s okay to model the space around us using the Euclidean metric. But the Euclidean model stops working when gravity becomes strong, as we’ll see later. The Euclidean model for space … Continue reading

What is Happening at the Singularity?

WEll, some of the commentors like myself are not worth counting?:)Thanks for keeping it interesting Clifford of Asymptotia. I hope you won’t mind the following quotes for consideration.( it was considered spam) so I reprint it here. Quantum geometry differs … Continue reading

Cascading Showers from the Cosmos

3) It is claimed that cosmic rays can energy exceeding that of colliders, and they have not caused trouble, suggesting that colliders will not cause trouble either. However, the analogy is not precise. It assumes two things that may not … Continue reading

The Geometrics Behind the Supernova and it’s History

It is not always easy for people to see what lies behind the wonderful beauty of images that we take from the satellite measures of space, and it’s dynamical events illustrated in Cassiopeia A. There before you is this majestic … Continue reading
