    Everything We Know About Physics in One Neat Infographic

    If you've ever wondered which part of physics covers which part of space, fret no more. Here is an awesome map that lays it all out.

    A New Hypothesis Suggests That Parallel Universes Might Interact after All

    A new conception of quantum mechanics rests on the idea that parallel universes exist, and that they interact with our own to create weird and wonderful quantum phenomena.

    Quantum mechanics is hard to do. The great physicist Richard Feynman once remarked “It is safe to say that nobody understands quantum mechanics” and that statement was regarded as correct. The problem isn’t in the math, even an undergraduate can use Schrödinger’s equation, it is in what the math means.

    The life and death of Schrodinger's cat, and what it really means

    Schrodinger's cat is one of the most famous thought experiments of all time, but what does it mean for science, and what happens to the poor cat?

    If you feel the need to put this cat in a box, you might be a physicist.
