Before The Big Bang

Using Loop Quantum Gravity theory, physicists have proposed a new mathematical model of what the universe looked like before the Big Bang. Writing in Nature Physics, Martin Bojowald, assistant professor of physics at Penn State, explains how the work can be used to derive new details about the properties of a quantum state as it […]

Volcanic Clay May Have Served As Womb For Emergent Life

Scientists have discovered that certain clay minerals near hydrothermal vents at the bottom of the ocean can act as incubators for organic molecules. Geochemist Lynda Williams, from Arizona State University, believes her study, published in Geology, shows how some of the fundamental materials necessary for life might have originally come into existence. Williams’ findings are […]

Supercomputer To Simulate Galactic Evolution

David Merritt, a professor of physics at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), has just finished putting together one of the fastest supercomputers in the world. The new computer uses a novel architecture to reach speeds much higher than that of standard supercomputers of comparable size, and is the first ever designed specifically to study […]
