Don’t miss this one, the guys are putting it to test and…. heck it can even cut through steel!
You should check out their YouTube channel, they’ve made some CRAZY stuff during the years, like Wolverine’s bone claws, Iron Man Plasma Glove, and Helmet (WITH DISPLAY!!!), Thor’s Hammer and lots of other fun projects.
A working (and RETRACTABLE!!!) light saber has always been a dream, ever sice the concept was introduced by George Lucas in 1977’s film ‘Star Wars’ (now titled ‘Star Wars: A New Hope’ or ‘Episode IV’).
Up until now there has been, as we know it, no one able to pull it off. But just like its inspiration, there’s ‘A New Hope’ (pun intended).
Not just that they’ve been working it out, it results in being able to produce a blue lightsaber, a green lighsaber, a red lightsaber, an ember lightsaber and even a yellow lightsaber. In the ‘Star Wars’ universe these are made of lightsaber crystals also known as kyber crystals. And all colors are supposed to have different meanings
This is rocket science and beyond my knowledge, so I’ll let these guys explain it to you.
Stars are our stellar alchemists. They spend their entire lifespan creating and molding elements. In their final moments, a supernova spreads these elements out into the universe, providing the building blocks for new stars, planets, and even us!
We often take that big, bright ball of light in our sky for granted. But we all know how vital the sun is for life on Earth. So, what would happen if we had two of them? Would doubling up on suns be a good thing, or bad? Our hypothetical lives in a new-look solar system would definitely be VERY different…
Overview: Eleven dimensions, parallel universes, and a world made out of strings. It’s not science fiction, it’s string theory.
Beginning with a brief consideration of classical physics, which concentrates on the major conflicts in physics, Greene establishes a historical context for string theory as a necessary means of integrating the probabilistic world of the standard model of particle physics and the deterministic Newtonian physics of the macroscopic world. Greene discusses the essential problem facing modern physics: unification of Albert Einstein’s theory of General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics. Greene suggests that string theory is the solution to these two conflicting approaches. Greene frequently uses analogies and thought experiments to provide a means for the layman to come to terms with the theory which has the potential to create a unified theory of physics.
The Seven Wonders of the Natural World may have been named too quickly. Wonders like The Grand Canyon and Victoria Falls are certainly big, and anyone who sees them will surely be impressed—but sheer size isn’t enough to truly leave a person in awe. There are other places in this world, though, that are far stranger. Places that seem almost alien, as if they could only exist on a planet that evolved separately from our own. These are places that scientists have had to struggle just to understand how they ever could have been formed. Places that will truly make you wonder—not just because they’re beautiful, but because they seem to follow scientific laws that don’t exist anywhere else on earth. Here are 10 Scientifically Impossible Places That Actually Exist
The speed of light is often cited as the fastest anything can travel in our universe. While this might be true, the speed of light is the EFFECT and not the CAUSE of this phenomenon. So what’s the cause? On this week’s episode of Space Time, Matt helps explain what the speed of light REALLY is and why it’s the cosmic speed limit of our universe!
In National Geographic Channel’s “Mars: Making the New Earth”, award winning writer/producer Mark Davis and legendary Mars animator Dan Maas collaborate with McKay on the first in depth visualization of what it would take to turn a cold, dead planet into a living world.
When astronomers noticed the erratic flickering of KIC 8462852 in 2015, the little-known star became our new planetary obsession – could an alien megastructure be surrounding Tabby’s Star?
NASA’s Kepler Mission proved that whatever was making the planet star dim uncontrollably could not have been a planet as we know it. Astronomers have increasingly accepted the possibility of a Dyson sphere, but the truth about the star remains a mystery.
