The Day Edwin Hubble Realized Our Universe Was Expanding

This year marks the 90th anniversary of a mind-boggling discovery: that the universe is expanding. The discovery was spearheaded by Edwin Hubble, for whom the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope is named. As an astronomer at Mount Wilson Observatory in Los Angeles, Hubble had access to the most cutting-edge equipment of the day, particularly the 100-inch (2.5 meters) Hooker telescope. The telescope, built in 1917, was the largest on Earth until 1949. Since 1919, Hubble had been discovering new gal...

Why Is the Night Sky Dark?

I love how simple questions can reveal deep truths about how the universe works. Take “why is the night sky dark?” It’s a question a small child might ask but stumped the likes of Newton, Halley, and Kepler and wasn’t really resolved until Einstein’s theory of general relativity and the Big Bang theory rolled around. Here’s the paradox: if we live in a static infinite universe, shouldn’t the sky be unbearably bright? Distant stars look weak, and very distant stars shine too dimly for you to see...

Forged From Passion: A blacksmith’s take on the Z650

Building custom motorcycles often involves a radical career change, and we’ve seen some pretty strange jumps over the years. Tom Simpson’s background is especially unusual: he trained as a blacksmith before setting up Foundry Motorcycle in England six years ago. Tom now builds very stylish cafe racers and bobbers in his Chichester, West Sussex workshop. As you can imagine, he has a deft hand when it comes to fabrication—but this Kawasaki Z650 is more about smart mechanical modifications than ...

Chris Halaschek of Pindrop: As Smart Speakers Rise in Popularity, Synthetic Speech and Voice Synthesis is Something We Need to be Ready For

The huge annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is wrapping up today, and it seems for the second year in a row smart devices with voice assistants like Amazon’s Alexa and Google’s Assistant were the talk of the show… pun intended.  With Amazon recently announcing they’ve sold over 100 million Echo devices, and analyst estimates saying Google has sold about half that amount of Google Home devices, it’s easy to see that we’re getting quite used to interacting with smart devices.  But in order of...

Quantum Entanglement

Anybody see the Quantum entanglement show on Nova last night? Pretty interesting. "With the help of two extremely bright quasars located more than 7 billion light-years away, researchers recently bolstered the case for quantum entanglement — a phenomenon Einstein described as "spooky action at a distance" — by eliminating one classical alternative: The freedom-of-choice loophole. Quantum connection Of the many mindboggling facets of quantum mechanics, one of the most intriguing is the idea o...

Ultrabright Quasar Lit Up the Early Universe

Astronomers have just discovered a galaxy with a supermassive black hole at its core, and it's located over 12.8 billion light-years away from Earth, just a billion years shy of the Big Bang. Known as a quasar, this object is the brightest of its kind ever seen in the distant universe. The discovery gives scientists a better look at the universe's early years and helps them understand how supermassive black holes form and evolve. The newfound quasar, dubbed UHS J043947.08+163415.7, was ...

'Light Echoes' of Black Hole Reveal Clues Behind Dazzling X-Ray Flares

An instrument aboard the International Space Station has helped reveal how black holes release brilliant flares of X-rays, a new study finds. Previous research found that when gas and dust get sucked into black holes, they explode with bursts of high-energy X-rays that usually last about a year. A better understanding of these outbursts, dubbed transient events, might shed light on how black holes influence the fates of their host galaxies. However, scientists have debated where these bright f...

Our Unbounded Finite Universe

I’ve always had a hard time wrapping my head around the idea that the universe could be both finite and infinite at the same time (or something like that *takes bong rip*), but this passage from Coming of Age in the Milky Way by Timothy Ferris succinctly explains what’s going on: General relativity resolved the matter by establishing that the universe could be both finite — i.e., could contain a finite number of stars in a finite volume of space — and unbounded. The key to this realization lay ...

Interviewing for Cultural Fit? You’re Doing It Wrong

There’s tension between two things every business claims to want: cultural cohesion and employee diversity. It’s natural to want to hire people who “fit” into the company’s existing culture. Economist Sara Ellison, the lead author of a Massachusetts Institute of Technology study on gender diversity, notes that homogeneous offices have more social capital because they tend toward cooperation. Although homogeneity may make employees feel comfortable, Ellison’s study found it’s not necessarily co...

Everything Steven Soderbergh Watched and Read in 2018, Including His Forthcoming Netflix Projects

It has become a tradition for Steven Soderbergh to release a list of everything that he watched throughout the preceding year, encompassing feature films, television shows, and short films, and he certainly didn’t slow down his viewing habits at all this year, even if he maybe spent too much time watching the Winter Olympics in February last year. Last year’s list from Steven Soderbergh features no less than nine viewings of Ocean’s 8, and since the movie didn’t come out until June 5, 2018, it ...

What Einstein meant by ‘God does not play dice’

'The theory produces a good deal but hardly brings us closer to the secret of the Old One,' wrote Albert Einstein in December 1926. 'I am at all events convinced that He does not play dice.' Einstein was responding to a letter from the German physicist Max Born. The heart of the new theory of quantum mechanics, Born had argued, beats randomly and uncertainly, as though suffering from arrhythmia. Whereas physics before the quantum had always been about doing this and getting that, the new quantum...

How kugelblitz black holes could power future spacecraft

We think of black holes as traditionally being formed when matter is packed so densely that the gravity they exert prevents even light from escaping their event horizon.However, Einstein showed that energy and matter are equivalent; rather than taking the enormous amount of matter required to make a sufficiently sized black hole, we could make one using light, known as a kugelblitz.If we had the technology to capture it, the energy from a kugelblitz would be extraordinarily useful. None Here's t...
