Here is a sample of some of the scientific stories being explored so far!
Big Bang – the beginnings of the universe
The Big Bang is a theory that attempts to explain how the universe developed from a very tiny, dense state into what it is today. We are developing a soundscape to replicate this idea!
Mirror Particles and Quantum Entanglement
Entanglement occurs when a pair of particles, such as photons, interact physically.
In quantum physics, entangled particles remain connected so that actions performed on one affect the other, even when separated by great distances. The phenomenon so riled Albert Einstein he called it “spooky action at a distance.”
‘From the calcium in our bones…’
This spoken piece is a quote by Margherita Hack, known as the “Lady of the Stars”, who was a leading Italian astrophysicist.
For decades, science popularisers have said humans are made of stardust, and now, a new survey of 150,000 stars shows just how true the old cliché is. Humans and their galaxy have about 97 percent of the same kind of atoms, and the elements of life appear to be more prevalent toward the galaxy’s centre, the research found.
Find out more stories about the stars by coming to the event at the StarDisc in Wikrksworth, Derbyshire on 15 September! See you there.
