The Start of Time (Physics)

I repost today this wonderful take on the Physics of Time by a recent follower of Self-organized Science&Technology.

Scientific Babble

The 2 common ways that the world was believed to have been created was:

  • The Big Bang Theory – Science
  • Creation – Christianity

Today I am going to talk about a few different versions humans have on how the world was created. Before I get started I would just like to point out that there are many different versions we have about the beginning of time, some science based, some religious. Everyone has the right to believe in what they deem is correct and not to be judged on their views.

First up, ‘The Big Bang Theory’

Most astronomers believed that 13.8 billion ears ago, there was a HUGE explosion! At that time, the entire universe was inside a bubble that was thousands of times smaller than a pinhead. It was hotter and denser than anything we can comprehend. BANG!!! It instantaneously exploded. Time, space and matter all started with the Big Bang. In a fraction of…

International Workshop on Nonlinearity, Nonequilibrium and Complexity: Questions and perspectives in Statistical Physics.

     405618_299564116768790_1602251248_n    The workshop is aimed at discussing a few chosen contemporary developments in statistical physics. Topics include problems in condensed matter and dynamical systems (pattern structures, granular matter, glass formation, turbulence, marginal chaos, etc.); and also current applications outside of traditional fields in physics (in biology, ecology, sociology, economy, seismology and other geophysical, astrophysical phenomena, complexity in urban developments, complexity in linguistics, literature and arts, etc.). There would be an examination of equilibrium and nonequilibrium theories, and of the current efforts in generalizing statistical mechanical structures and methods. We would like to emphasize that our aim is to make the meeting the occasion for a memorable scientific discussion that can be carried out comfortably in an intimate environment.

International Workshop on Nonlinearity, Nonequilibrium and Complexity: Questions and perspectives in Statistical Physics. This is an event in honor of Prof. Alberto Robledo’s 70th birthday.
