Kopfschmerzen

Question asked of Neil deGrasse Tyson: “What never fails to blow your mind in physics?”

His answer:

“1) The fact that an electron has no known size — it’s smaller than the smallest measurement we have ever made of anything.

2) That Quarks come only in pairs: If you try to separate two of them, the energy you sink into the system to accomplish this feat is exactly the energy to spontaneously create two more quarks – one to partner with each of those you pulled apart.

3) That the space-time structure inside a rotating black hole does not preclude the existence of an entire other universe.

MindBlown x 3”

 

Question: “If you could add one course to a student’s curriculum, what would it be?”

Answer:”Course title every university should offer: ‘How to tell when someone else is full of shit'”

 

I love Neil.
