Many wrong or at least incomplete or naive answers here. It is not necessary to “disturb” a particle to “observe” it. Modern versions of the infamous double-slit experiment can generate which-path information without ever interacting with the particle, the particle is …

Terrance tao, the smartest mathematician alive was once asked about the toughest concept in mathematics according to him. "Geometry and Topology", he yelled, no doubt on the face. The mathematician with an IQ of 230 is not very good in Topology ( but he can…

When Alice falls into the rabbit hole, she experiences a host of "curiouser and curiouser" phenomena. She gets smaller, she gets bigger, she almost drowns in a sea of her own tears and she meets an assembly of strange creatures. As it turns out, falling into …

Solar neutrino problem is a long-standing astrophysics problem where the amount of observed neutrinos originating from the Sun was much less than expected. It happens in the Sun that the process of energy generation results from the enormous pressure and density…
