    Elon Musk thinks we're all probably trapped in a "Matrix"-like pseudo existence.   The universe is 13.8 billion years old, so any civilizations that may have arisen throughout the cosmos have had loads and loads of time to hone their technological know-how, the SpaceX founder and CEO explained early this morning (Sept. 7) during a long, wide-ranging and very entertaining appearance on...

  • For Tiny Light Particles, 'Before' and 'After' Mean Nothing
    Beneath the surface of the familiar world is a smaller, quantum world that defies our fundamental ideas of time and space.   In this mini world, the concepts of "before" and "after" dissolve, such that two events can both precede and succeed each other. In other words, event A can occur before event B, and event B can occur before event A, according to a new study published Aug. 31 in...

    Have you ever seen a shooting star?
