Spooky action at a distance : the phenomenon that reimagines space and time--and what it means for black holes, the big bang, and theories of everything by George Musser( Book )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A tour of modern physics that provocatively examines growing understandings about the near-fantastical impact of particles to affect each other across the vastness of space, "--Amazon.com
The complete idiot's guide to string theory by George Musser( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We're living in the midst of a scientific revolution that has captured the general public's attention and imagination. The aim of this new revolution is to develop a theory of everything set of laws of physics that will explain all that can be explained, ranging from the tiniest subatomic particle to the universe as a whole. Here, readers will learn the ideas behind the theories, and their effects upon our world, our civilization, and ourselves. --Publisher description

Spooky action at a distance : the phenomenon that reimagines space and time-and what It means for black holes, the big bang, and theories of everything by George Musser( Recording )

What is space? It isn't a question that most of us normally stop to ask. Space is the venue of physics; it's where things exist, where they move and take shape. Yet over the past few decades, physicists have discovered a phenomenon that operates outside the confines of space and time. The phenomenon-the ability of one particle to affect another instantly across the vastness of space-appears to be almost magical. Einstein grappled with this oddity and couldn't quite resolve it, describing it as "spooky action at a distance." But this strange occurrence has direct connections to black holes, particle collisions, and even the workings of gravity. If space isn't what we thought it was, then what is it?In Spooky Action at a Distance, George Musser sets out to answer that question, offering a provocative exploration of nonlocality and a celebration of the scientists who are trying to understand it. Musser guides us on an epic journey of scientific discovery into the lives of experimental physicists observing particles acting in tandem, astronomers discovering galaxies that look statistically identical, and cosmologists hoping to unravel the paradoxes surrounding the big bang. Their conclusions challenge our understanding not only of space and time but of the origins of the universe-and their insights are spurring profound technological innovation and suggesting a new grand unified theory of physics

¿ Puede terminar el tiempo?: Sí y no. El final del tiempo se antoja por un lado imposible y, por otro, inevitable. Algunos avances recientes proponen una solución a esta paradoja by George Musser( )

in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Nuestra experiencia cotidiana nos dice que nada acaba por completo. Al morir, la materia de la que hoy se compone nuestro cuerpo regresará a la tierra y al aire y, antes o después, participará en la creación de nueva vida. En cierto modo, la existencia se perpetúa. Pero ¿continuará tal proceso indefinidamente? ¿Podría llegar un momento más allá del cual no hubiera ningún "después"? La física moderna sugiere una respuesta afirmativa: el mismo tiempo podría terminar. Toda actividad cesaría y no habría renovación ni recuperación. La teoría en la que se basa nuestra comprensión actual de la gravedad (la relatividad general) contempla semejante panorama. Con anterioridad a Einstein se pensaba en el tiempo como en una especie de tambor universal, un son constante a cuyo ritmo marcha el cosmos sin variar, vacilar o detenerse. Pero Einstein demostró que ese ritmo del universo no es tan monótono. El tiempo puede frenarse o acelerarse. Según la relatividad general, la fuerza de la gravedad no es sino una manifestación de semejantes cambios de ritmo: los objetos en caída libre se ven atraídos hacia lugares en los que el tiempo transcurre más despacio

Nautilus : Noise, Sport, July/August 2016( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Robert L. Forward novel Dragon’s Egg begins with an intrepid graduate student refusing to accept that a noisy satellite signal is just a malfunction. It must have some meaning, she thinks—and it does, turning out to herald the passing by of an inhabited neutron star (and making graduate school look rather easy). Even a malfunction, though, wouldn’t really have been noise. We’d have to assume that some satellite engineer would be interested. In fact, it’s hard to imagine any signal coming from space that would be of no interest to anyone. The noisiest signals are even sometimes the most important. Microwave and gravitational wave backgrounds, for example. Our modern definition of noise, as unwanted sound or signal, is a relatively recent one. The word used to mean strife, and nausea. Is the new meaning a useful ontology? Or does it encourage us to dismiss what we can’t interpret? Welcome to “Noise.”
