That answer stuck in my mind for ever, I thought to myself I would never say something is a mystery when we know so much about it. And as Physicists that’s all our motivation is all about. Not only to find answers to mysteries but also to keep an enthusiasm for every crazy idea that hits us.
The thickness of hair from a diffraction pattern, science of a different passion Sometimes in 2007 or early 2008, this picture was taken (with a camera fitted on a mobile phone.) It captured a unique diffraction pattern by accident (serendipity!!)…. Read More ›
A power-point slide Uncertainty Principle of nature Read at-least the end of this article below: ‘”the additionl form of uncertainty equation is momentum-time uncertainty for mass-have particles and position-time uncertainty for mass-havenots (a photon is a mass-havenot but it does… Read More ›
Why are such experiments to explore the physical nature of our universe so paramount to human endeavor ?
If you drive a car and hit against another rigid object you might wanna know how hard it will affect you. You might not want to experience that real time. You might wanna hire some confident engineers to do the job in a laboratory. They will take equations that were discovered a century before and simulate the forces in a mechanical setting to give you answers that will be like logical umbrellas. [Or spherical cows !!]
But there are also forces and equations and structures we have stumbled across which we experience but don’t understand. What they will bring us 100 years from now is something worth giving a consideration, a worth that runs into billions of dollars, as world wide efforts of finding the deepest secrets of nature.
