    Tell Me About the Higgs Boson

    The Higgs boson is a particle that was first proposed in 1964 by physicist Peter Higgs as a means of explaining why certain subatomic particles have mass. The existence of the Higgs boson was confirmed in 2012 by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. The Higgs mechanism, which […]

    String Theory Explained | What Is String Theory?

    String theory is a theoretical framework in physics that aims to reconcile quantum mechanics, the theory that describes the behavior of small particles like atoms and subatomic particles, with general relativity, the theory that describes the behavior of large-scale objects like planets and galaxies. At the heart of string theory is the idea that the […]

    Quantum Mechanics | Is There Relevance To Existence

    Quantum mechanics is a branch of physics that describes the behavior of particles at the atomic and subatomic scale. It is a fundamental theory that underlies much of modern physics and has had a profound impact on our understanding of the nature of the universe. One of the key principles of quantum mechanics is the […]
