New Space Game Puts You In Control Of Everyone, Like A God

The Fermi Paradox is “a choice-driven sci-fi narrative strategy game” that’s coming later this year on PC, where instead of taking control of a single space-faring faction, you’re more of a “gardener”, tending to loads of factions and trying to guide them from the stone age into the depths of space.Read more… Continue Reading at […]

The Physics of Tenet Is Shaky, but It Still Kicks Ass

“Don’t try to understand it,” a scientist tells the protagonist of Tenet, as she briefly explains the physics of Christopher Nolan’s $205-million, time-traveling spy thriller. Sure, the physics is often unrealistic and confusing, but it’s fascinating. And with its many Easter eggs, Tenet sets up some nice jumping-off…Read more… Continue Reading at https://kotaku.com

Could You Drive The Gordon Murray T.50 By Only Using Its Big-Ass Fan?

I think we’ve all been pretty dazzled by the new Gordon Murray Automotive T.50 hypercar—and I normally find that word kind of eye-rollish, but in this case I think it’s justified. It’s such a pure exercise in technology employed to make driving really exciting: small, featherweight, an advanced, naturally-aspirated…Read more… Continue Reading at https://jalopnik.com

Is There a Fifth Dimension?

Imagine a world where you can only move forwards and backwards along a line. You’d see nothing but single points in front of you, and nothing but single points behind you—a one-dimensional world. Now expand this to a second dimension—you can move forwards and backwards, and also left and right, experiencing the world…Read more… Continue […]

When Will Quantum Computers Outperform Regular Computers?

Any day now, quantum computers will solve a problem too hard for a classical computer to take on. Or at least, that’s what we’ve been hoping. Scientists and companies are racing toward this computing milestone, dubbed quantum supremacy and seemingly just beyond our reach, and if you’ve been following the quantum…Read more… Continue Reading at […]

What Does a Particle Collider Sound Like?

Scientists explore the limits of physics by pumping energy into components of atoms, such as electrons and protons, accelerating them to nearly the speed of light, and slamming the beams of particles together in hopes of discovering something new. You can imagine that this process gets quite noisy.Read more… Continue Reading at https://kotaku.com

Here’s a Live Feed of the Century’s Longest Lunar Eclipse

The longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century will start today at 3:30 p.m. and last until 5:15 p.m. EST (12:30 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. PST). The moon won’t rise in North America until after the eclipse is over, so no one in North America will be able to see it, except for some folks […]

Cosmic Ray Mystery Finally Cracked Thanks to Supermassive Black Hole Beaming Energy Straight at Earth

Every so often, protons and even entire atomic nuclei strike the Earth with extremely high energies—much higher than what scientists can produce in their most powerful physics experiments. Since the discovery of “cosmic rays” a hundred years ago, no one knew for sure where the most energetic of these particles came…Read more… Continue Reading at […]
