You are a Simulation & Physics Can Prove It

Astrophysicist, cosmologist and Nobel Prize winner George Smoot explains the cosmic microwave background radiation — the afterglow of the Big Bang. His ground-breaking study into deep space and time is revealing the structure of the cosmos itself. He has also made a role entrance (as himself) in an episode of the 'Big Bang Theory.' Below in the video he tries to explain why and how you are a Simulation & Physics Can Prove It. Okay, so, there’s one thing you know for certain, that is that you exist as a flesh and blood human being; my goal is to convince you otherwise. Okay? So, logic is not going to be enough, you guys are going to be simulation deniers, there’s just no way round it.


So, my actual goal will be to actually create a sliver of doubt in your minds, so that you actually think about this, and what it might mean. Okay?

NASA: "The Death of a Planet" -- Venus Had an Ocean and Habitable Surface Temperatures for Two Billion Years

“These results show ancient Venus may have been a very different place than it is today,” siad Michael Way, a researcher at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York. Venus today is a hellish world. It has a crushing carbon dioxide atmosphere 90 times as thick as Earth’s. There is almost no water vapor.  Temperatures reach 864 degrees Fahrenheit (462 degrees Celsius) at its surface. Venus may have had a shallow liquid-water ocean and habitable surface temperatures for up to 2 billion years of its early history, according to computer modeling of the planet’s ancient climate by scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York.

The findings, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, were obtained with a model similar to the type used to predict future climate change on Earth. “Many of the same tools we use to model climate change on Earth can be adapted to …

ESA Set to Explore ‘the Most Mysterious Planet’ in the Solar System

A double decker spacecraft—which can carry TWO orbiters, one belonging to the Japanese Space Agency and another one from the European counterpart is set to explore one of the most mysterious planets in the solar system, on a mission that will launch in 2018. Scientists want to get as close as possible to the surface of the planet, which is blasted by EXTREME radiation levels around ten times higher than on the sun, and by temperatures that literally melt metal.
The Mission is set to launch on October 5, 2018, from Kourou in French Guinea and will arrive at Mercury, the closest planet in our solar system on December 5, 2025.
Mercury is considered as one of the most intriguing planets in our solar system, and very little is known about it. BepiColombo would be the European Space Agency’s FIRST mission to the closest planet in our solar system.
The ESA has said that BepiColombo aims to “follow up on many of the intriguing results of NASA‘s Messenger mission, probing deeper into Mercury’s my…

NASA Just Detected A Strange, Strong Signal From Deep Inside the Milky Way --"May Reveal the Dark Side of Our Universe"

NASA’s Chandra X-Ray Observatory has observed very strange and distinctive X-ray signal coming from our Milky Way Galaxy that researchers believe can help them in proving the existence of the mysterious dark side of the universe. That is the claim of US scientists who analyzed the energy spectrum of X-rays.
The data was gathered by NASA’s Chandra satellite who found more X-ray photons with a particular energy than would be expected if they were generated by the decay of dark matter particles, say the researchers. This is not the first time that scientists have seen extra photons with an energy of about 3,500 electronvolts (3.5 keV) in the spectra recorded by X-ray satellites.
The researchers found that the strength of their 3.5 keV signal was consistent with data from NASA’s X-ray satellite, the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuStar). With no obvious interference within the satellite itself, the researchers concluded that the signal is unlikely to be caused by instrumental nois…

A Supermassive Black Hole Is Heading Earth’s Way At 110 Km Per Second

There is a massive black hole with millions of times more mass than our sun is plunging towards Earth and will one day annihilate life as we know it.
This particular black hole is coming towards us at 110 kilometres per second and is at the center of the Great Andromeda Galaxy – the Milky Way’s closest and much larger neighbor.
At the center of the most known galaxies, there exist a supermassive black hole which stars spin around and helps keep everything in formation.

But such is the powerful gravitational pull of the Milky Way and Andromeda that they are being drawn toward each other and will one day crash. Fraser Cain, publisher of space website Universe Today, wrote for Phys.org:
“There’s a black hole at the centre of the Milky Way. And not just any black hole, it’s a supermassive black hole with more than 4.1 million times the mass of the Sun. It’s right over there, in the direction of the Sagittarius constellation. Located just 26,000 light-years away. And as we speak, it’s in the p…

“There Have Been 10,000 Generations Before Us -- Ours Could Be The First To Discover Extraterrestrial Life” --NASA

In 1960, the astrophysicist Francis Drake pointed a radio telescope situated in Green Bank, West Virginia, in the direction of two Sun-like stars 11 light years away. His faith: to pick up a signal that would verify gifted life might be out there. Fifty years have departed by since Drake’s pioneering SETI experiment, and we’ve yet to perceive the aliens. But because of a host of discoveries, the idea that life might survive outside Earth now appears more believable than ever. For one, we now know that life can flourish in the most extreme surroundings here on Earth — from deep-sea methane seep and Antarctic sea ice to acidic rivers and our thirstiest deserts.
We’ve also discovered that liquid water isn’t exclusive to our planet. Saturn’s moon “Enceladus” and Jupiter’s moons “Ganymede” and “Europa” have large oceans underneath their icy surfaces. Even Saturn’s largest moon “Titan” could seed some kind of life in its lakes and rivers of methane-ethane. And then there’s the finding of exo…

Introducing LiFi: It Was Just Tested Against WiFi & It’s 100 Times Faster

“Excuse me, do you have Wi-Fi?”
It seems to be the most common question posed in today’s society. We’ve become accustomed to wanting this type of technology at our fingertips in every situation, whether we’re working on-the-go, browsing the Internet whenever or wherever we please, or streaming movies, TV shows, and random videos.
But have you heard of Li-Fi?
It’s a wireless technology that transmits high-speed data using visible light communication (VLC), and it’s about to hit it big in the coming months.
Scientists have made it possible to achieve speeds of 224 gigabits per second in the lab using Li-Fi earlier this year, and the potential technology could forever change the way we view and use the Internet.
Now, for the first time, scientists have taken this envelope-pushing technology out of the lab, trialing it in offices and industrial environments in Tallinn, Estonia. They’ve reported that they can reach data transmission at a whopping 1 GB per second, which is 100 times faster than …
