Who is the father of physics?

Physics is a branch of Science that deals with the study of natural phenomena that are prevalent in the nature. So here we have to find out who is the Father of Physics. We might find this like just like we solve physical problems, by the Method of Deduction. We also know that this while […]

Can gravity be infinite? if not why?

The kinetic energy that water gains when it falls (and can therefore be converted into electricity by a hydroelectric plant) comes ultimately from sunlight and not from gravity. As a force, no energy can be extracted from gravity itself. Public Domain Image, source: Christopher S. Baird. No, gravity can not be used as an infinite […]

Why is the Sun stationary?

credits:sun gifs Well, its not. Technically, the sun is orbiting the center of our galaxy like we orbit said Sun. However, if you mean ‘why do we orbit the sun instead of the sun orbiting us or both of us orbiting over an invisible axis?’ then it’s because the sun is SO MASSIVE! All of […]

How big is our solar system?

This artist’s concept depicts NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft entering interstellar space, or the space between stars. Interstellar space is dominated by the plasma, or ionized gas, that was ejected by the death of nearby giant stars millions of years ago. The environment inside our solar bubble is dominated by the plasma exhausted by our sun, […]

How do we measure time beyond the solar system?

DSAC is prepping for a yearlong experiment to characterize and test its suitability for use in future deep spaceexploration. Image via NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory By Todd Ely, NASA We all intuitively understand the basics of time. Every day we count its passage and use it to schedule our lives. We also use time to navigate our way to the […]

Why is a solar system black?

Add caption Space is full of light, but it doesn’t look like it. Credit: NASA, ESA, and S. Beckwith (STScI) and the HUDF Team The color black usually signals the absence of light. But inside the solar system, space is filled with light. “Light usually travels straight ahead in a line unless it reflects off […]

Why are the orbits of planets elliptical?

These three answers are the best explaination i found on quora: Answer 1 by Author: Robert Frost, Guidance, Navigation, and Control Instructor for NASA manned spacecraft Newton figured out that any body under the influence of an inverse square force (e.g. gravity) will travel along a conic section.  The conic sections are the circle, the ellipse, […]
