What is Holographic Principle? | Physics-Astronomy

What is Holographic Principle? | Physics-Astronomy | Science technology and reaserch | Scoop.it
The holographic principle is actually a property of string theories and a hypothetical property of quantum gravity that speculates that the explanation of a volume of space can be assumed of as encoded on a margin to the region, rather a light-like margin like a gravitational horizon. Holographic principle was first suggested by Gerard 't Hooft, it was given a detailed string-theory understanding by Leonard Susskind, who united his concepts with earlier ones of 't Hooft and Charles Thorn. As marked out by Raphael Bousso, Thorn detected in 1978 that string theory acknowledges a lower-dimensional explanation in which gravity arises from it in what would now be termed a holographic way.

Black phosphorus is new 'wonder material' for improving optical communication

Black phosphorus is new 'wonder material' for improving optical communication | Science technology and reaserch | Scoop.it
Phosphorus, a highly reactive element commonly found in match heads, tracer bullets, and fertilizers, can be turned into a stable crystalline form known as black phosphorus. In a new study, researchers from the University of Minnesota used an ultrathin black phosphorus film—only 20 layers of atoms—to ...

The sonic boom problem - Katerina Kaouri

The sonic boom problem - Katerina Kaouri | Science technology and reaserch | Scoop.it
Objects that fly faster than the speed of sound (like really fast planes) create a shock wave accompanied by a thunder-like noise: the sonic boom. These epic sounds can cause distress to people and animals and even damage nearby buildings. Katerina Kaouri details how scientists use math to predict sonic booms' paths in the atmosphere, where they will land, and how loud they will be.

Myths and misconceptions about evolution - Alex Gendler | Science technology and reaserch | Scoop.it
How does evolution really work? Actually, not how some of our common evolutionary metaphors would have us believe. For instance, it's species, not individual organisms, that adapt to produce evolution, and genes don't "want" to be passed on -- a gene can't want anything at all! Alex Gendler sets the record straight on the finer points of evolution.
