Where were my body’s atoms a million years ago?
Four elements account for 96 per cent of your mass: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen. Oxygen makes up over 61 per cent of your mass, compared with hydrogen at just 10 per cent, but hydrogen is a much lighter element, so around 63 per cent of your atoms are hydrogen atoms, 24 per cent oxygen […]
Extreme Horizons in Space Could Lure Quantum States Into Reality : ScienceAlert
Nearly a century has passed since scientists broke the Universe. Through a complex mix of experiment and theory, physicists discovered an engine built on the mathematics of probability ticks away below the façade of reality. Referred to in vague terms as the Copenhagen interpretation, this take on the theory underpinning quantum mechanics says everything can […]
