E=mc². Arguably the most famous equation in history. But what exactly does it mean? And why is it so significant?

It’s a big one this week as we delve into the beginning of everything with a look at the Big Bang Theory. How did the universe as we know it come into existence from supposedly nothing? And why?

Marie Curie, the renowned physicist and chemist, was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize and the first person to win it twice. Curie undertook ground-breaking research on radioactivity.  The level of radiation Curie was exposed to was so strong that over 100 years later her notebooks must now be kept in lead-lined boxes and those who handle them must wear protective gear. #science #radioactive #womeninscience

The spin of the Earth is slowing (very slowly) mainly due to the effect of the moon’s gravity. Just as the moon’s gravity pulls at our oceans as the planet rotates (creating tides), so too does it act as a drag on the Earth’s spin, meaning our days are gradually getting longer. This is why we have to add a leap second to our clocks every few years, and why the T-Rex experienced a 23 hour day.  #dinosaur #trex #jurassic #science #physics #gravity #moon #space

Have you ever thought just how pervasive time is in your life? It’s everywhere right? Try and think of any moment where time is not in the picture.  But what IS time? Why does time only go in one direction? What’s all this talk about time being an illusion? What about time travel?? So many questions! I try to answer them in the latest post - up now! #time #science #physics #timetravel
