Now you can watch as well as listen as world-renowned physicist Stephen Hawking expounds upon his latest ideas about the knotty black hole information paradox, playfully illustrated by chalkboard artist Andrew Park.
The latest episode of the PBS YouTube series Space Time is a great little eight-minute primer on, well, spacetime.
Take a peek at Deformscape, a garden patio in San Francisco. The architectural sculpture is a practical solution to limited space, and a vertigo-inducing illusion of a wormhole ready to suck the neighbourhood into the Japanese Maple tree.
After reading about the ground-breaking new evidence for the Big Bang this week you may have been left with a question: Just what are gravitational waves anyway? This video, using just a towel, an apple, and a ping pong ball, explains.
A games shop in Paris embraced the rubber-sheet metaphor of space-time to guide their interior design. The illusion is so convincing I can imagine shoppers occasionally stumble when their eyes and feet disagree about where exactly to expect the floor.
Like a beach chair sagging under a sunbather's weight, the fabric of spacetime does indeed warp around the mass of the Earth - just as Albert Einstein predicted. And like a swimmer moving through the water, the rotation of the Earth affects the movement of spacetime itself. A gravity probe whose origins date to the…
The so-called "real" world isn't as real as you'd imagined. When scientists look into the fabric of space-time beyond a certain depth, it starts to lose resolution. Almost like it's made of... pixels.
It's not until you acknowledge the world's greatest physicists do you realize how fundamentally useless our role here is. You and I will not uncover the secrets of the Universe. Luckily, someone's working on it.
If you're worried about getting packages from grandma and Amazon when you live in a hovering spacepod floating somewhere off the Pacific Rim, fret no more. You'll have friendly mail carriers with anti-Postal Tendencies (tm) automatic injector systems buzzing by to drop things off. They won't complain about the…
The folks at SpaceTime are trying to shake up how you browse the Web with a free app that lets you browse in 3D. The idea is pretty simple. Rather than have a 2D layout of your browser with tabs all over the place, SpaceTime breaks the "pages" out like a storyboard. It's not so practical if you're looking at one…
