The Power of Fusion Energy Might Finally Be Unlocked Thanks to a New Physics Update

In the world of renewable energy, there’s perhaps no more ambitious goal than fusion power. This involves fusing hydrogen atoms to create helium—a process that generates an ungodly amount of energy as a result. It’s a reaction that occurs every single moment in the sun, but replicating it on Earth is a much rarer and …

Scientist think there could be an ‘anti-universe’ where time runs backwards

It sounds like something straight out of a Christopher Nolan film, but scientists have suggested that there could actually be an ‘anti-universe’ where time runs backwards. And if you’re anything like us, your brain is probably starting to hurt already. It comes from experts studying symmetries, and the new research is all to do with …
