Newtonian gravity is not coherent with special relativity. Einstein was well aware about it and he had to invent General Relativity (GR). Armed with the equivalence principle, a mystery since ancient times of Galileo, the equivalence between inertial and gravitational … Continue reading

Cosmology is facing again some troubles. Some estimations of the Hubble parameter differ up to four standard deviations from the accepted value. Even when a few km/s/Mpc are not quite a huge difference, it turns than they can provide anomalies … Continue reading

The spectrum of gravitational waves!!!!! Purely gravitational wave music! The blog post today will cover two topics from elementary viewpoints: falling into a non-rotating black hole and gravitational wave “music”, i.e., gravitational wave formulae! It is a hard equilibrium … Continue reading

Quantum Mechanics, is it unbreakable? Is it effective or fundamental? Could it be an approximation to another theory? We do not know the ultimate word about that. However, up to current date (circa 2019), it is fundamental. Any trial and … Continue reading

Short post number two! Surprise! Have you ever wondered what is the cosmic energy of the Universe? Well, giving up certain General Relativity issues related to the notion of energy in local sense, there is indeed a global notion of … Continue reading

Hi, there. Short post today! The dark energy mystery, a.k.a., the cosmological constant problem or why the observed vacuum energy is to tiny is a big problem with no consensus solution yet. The Standard Model Higgs potential can be written … Continue reading

What is dark energy? Where does it come from? Is it constant? Is it a quantum field? Is it vacuum energy? Nobody knows what is the 70% of the Universe! In the beginning of Physics as Science, Aristotle himself introduced … Continue reading

Time of Cosmic Voyages https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEdpSgz8KU4 This is a long post, despite not being a special post (remember I make one of those every 50 posts). What are we going to see here? A five part post! Part(I). A descriptive prelude. … Continue reading

Hello, again! Yes, three consecutive days posting. A change! I missed blogging these months of nightmares. I hope these posts terminate your wait. The wait is over. And I can not wait too. Tempus fugit. Today, we will be discussing … Continue reading

Black holes and other astrophysical objects are true monsters. Some interesting tools from web pages to learn about these free catalogues: WATCHDOG and BLACKCAT. Also, the blackhole.org page and the sounds of spacetime for gravitational waves are suitable for you. … Continue reading
