I’ve also had the same experience with learning physics. To some people learning physics is awful, and […]Read more "Can you learn physics by playing?"
As you know light travels at a very fast but finite speed, which means this image above that you are looking at is of galaxies and structures as they were billions of years ago, there maybe no similar galaxies in the present universe to the ones in the picture. This is lucky for us, because […]Read more "What if there were no babies?"
