KILONOVA

When a star dies it would go into a supernova and depending on its mass its core either collapses into a black hole or a neutron star or a white dwarf. A kilonova is 1000 times brighter than nova (but not much brighter than a supernova). It is usually produced when two massive stellar core […]

THE DEATH STAR WR104

A death star named WR104 which is 8000 light-years away from us is ready to die.  WR104 is a triple star system. It is estimated that it will die by giving birth to a supernova which in turn releases a huge wall of GAMMA-RAY BURST (GMB). This is the major reason we are talking about […]

THE JOURNEY OF LIGHT

Bloom up your imagination. Consider a star which has nuclear fusion going on. Time to break things down. Now consider a small part of the star; assume the smallest part of the reaction which causes nuclear fusion. In this case, the hydrogen atoms. These atoms collide/ fuse with each other to produce heavier and heavier […]

UNSOLVED PROBLEMS IN PHYSICS

There is an enormous list when we try to talk about unsolved problems in physics. From multiverse to supersymmetry, from an atom in a universe to the universe in an atom, many unsolved problems are yet to be solved. A number of scientists and physicists over decades of work have been able to solve many. […]

Blackholes

One among the celestial entity, which is widely heard, Blackholes. What are Blackholes? How was it discovered? What led someone to throw a hunch like something like this exists? Do they exist? On the other hand, are they just a myth? The idea of a body so massive that even light could not escape was […]
