Wolf-Rayet star

While I have started off with the definition of the Wolf-Rayet star, the post ends in understanding the aspects of gravity and it’s affects, as we look at what has become of these Wolf-Rayet stars in their desimination of it’s … Continue reading

First Stars Behind the Scene

There are several recognized processes from the early universe that leave relic effects setting the stage for galaxy formation and evolution. We deal here with the first generarion of stars, primordial nucleosynthesis, the epoch of recombination, and the thermal history … Continue reading

Cosmic ray spallation

As this NASA chart indicates, 70 percent or more of the universe consists of dark energy, about which we know next to nothing Other explanations of dark energy, called “quintessence,” originate from theoretical high-energy physics. In addition to baryons, photons, … Continue reading

Back to the Beginning of Time

While some of us who had been engaged in a little prehistory examination of earliest QGP states as glast determination of high energy photons, the question, “to Be or not to be,” how could we not ask what Professor Susskind … Continue reading

Window on the Universe

Michio Kaku: I like to compare it to wandering in the desert, and stumbling over a tiny pebble. When we push away the sand, we find that this “pebble” is actually the tip of a gargantuan pyramid. After years of … Continue reading

What is the False Vacuum?

Quantum Field Theory Quantum Vacuum: In classical physics, empty space is called the vacuum. The classical vacuum is utterly featureless. However, in quantum theory, the vacuum is a much more complex entity. The uncertainty principle allows virtual particles (each corresponding … Continue reading

Emergence: A Point in Spacetime

We used to think that if we knew one, we knew two, because one and one are two. We are finding out that we must learn a great deal more about ‘and’.” – Sir Arthur Eddington (1882-1944) Foundational perspectives are … Continue reading
