The most intense solar storm in 25 years and how NASA tracked it - The Physics Boy

Solar storms from the Sun have been a common thing in our solar system and Earth has faced many Solar storms, but this time Earth has faced the most intense Solar storm in decades. On 14th May a continuous attack of large solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs) carrying clouds of charged particles and […]

Worlds largest telescope ever built to watch the deep space

The world is in a race to build more and more telescopes to bring more detailed images of the deep Universe. In the middle of the Chilean Atacama Desert, there is an ongoing project to build the world’s largest ground telescope (ELT) which will be approximately the size of the Roman Colosseum. This telescope will […]

The most distant black hole collision discovered by James Webb Space Telescope

The James Webb Space Telescope since its launch has shown us many marvelous planets and galaxies in the universe. This time James Webb discovered the merger of two massive black holes just 740 million years after the Big Bang. This event is due to the ongoing merger of two galaxies and the supermassive black holes […]

How do an optical fiber transmit information through light

Optical fiber these days have become a major source for the transmission of internet as it is capable of huge data transfer utilizing light in a very short time interval. Since optical frequencies are extremely large (- 1015 Hz), as compared to the conventional radio waves (- 106 Hz) and microwaves (- 1010 Hz), a […]
