Identifying the Equation of Universe

20 Nov 17

Physicist Stephen Jordan has released a new video that discusses the question that - Can a close look at the universe give us solutions to problems that is so difficult that even a computer cannot solve even if we develop a computer that is bigger than the planet system? His question is based on the idea that according to the law of nature the universe has gone through billions of years of changes. Is it possible for our telescopes to get the details like reason and solution of our difficult problems? 

The latest paper of Jordan includes a computer-stumping question that is called the number partitioning problem. That is if we had millions of very large numbers and wanted to divide them into two equal piles, to do that? The math is too difficult to solve that it has been considered as a real basis for cryptography or the science of analyzing and deciphering codes and ciphers in a simple way.

Through its study Jordan is trying to analyze the law behind the empty space that is seen everywhere and that has a background energy density that is very near to zero. He is attempting to reveal the answer behind the equation of nature. He is trying with the help of his colleagues to understand the computational power of the universe.

Let’s Imagine Earth without Sun

18 Nov 17

Have you ever wondered that what would Earth be like without Sun? We, humans, tend to enjoy the Sun whether it is about going to the beaches or taking a sunbath in the morning. A long time ago scientists did a study where they discovered that The Sun is a star and the center of our solar system. Sun has the magnetic power that allows other planets in our solar system to revolve around it.

Additionally, we cannot imagine life on earth without the existence the Sun because without the Sun none of us would even exist in the first place. During the research, the scientists studied the origins of life on Earth point to Earth's perfect positioning with regard to its distance from the Sun. The scientists stated that the distance is the main factor in creating life to exist on Earth.

Furthermore, the sunlight takes eight and a half minutes to reach Earth. Thus, we wouldn't notice immediately if the Sun suddenly went out. Nine minutes later, though, we'd find ourselves in complete darkness and slowly all photosynthesis on Earth would stop.
