It is all a Function of Mass

Throughout math and physics certain trends occur over and over. The unique numbers of pi and phi (the golden ratio) respectively define circles and spirals. The mathematical forms of the equations for gravitational force and electric force are the same, and the physical forms of fractals get bigger without changing shape. Now, a pair of […]

When Galaxies interact, it’s Not all Fun and Games

Today’s round of press conference started with the story of three systems that have mutually triggered fireworks in one another’s cores. Specifically, a gravitationally bound system of three quasars has been located at a distance of roughly 10.4 billion light years (z = 2.076). This is the first such triple quasar system that has been […]
