Baryon asymmetry is one of the problems mentioned in the list of unsolved physics problems and it refers to the fact that there is an imbalance in baryonic matter and antibaryonic matter in the observable universe. Or, in simple words, it means that we see mostly matter and basically no antimatter in our universe. This mystery cannot be explained by the standard […]

In this new video Professor Daniele Faccio talks about the physics of black holes. Black holes have a special place in physics, as the laws of general relativity must break down inside black holes. However, the singularity of a black hole is one of the few known objects, which should in theory behave according to some […]

“Einstein theory thriumphs!” announced the New York Times headline back in November 10 1919. It was celebrating the famous confirmation of Einstein’s general theory of relativity, which was confirmed by observing the bending of light by the sun during the solar eclipse. Einstein became a celebrity all over the world instantly.   As the headline […]

Quantum mechanics and the general theory of relativity are the two great pinacles of theoretical physics. And despite the fact that they are perhaps the most used theories in modern physics, quantum mechanics and GR seem to be incompatible. They both predict some amazing phenomena, which is hard to comprehend. Nevertheless, these days many physicists […]
