The Future Of Energy Isn't Fossil Fuels Or Renewables, It's Nuclear Fusion

Let’s pretend, for a moment, that the climate doesn’t matter. That we’re completely ignoring the connection between carbon dioxide, the Earth’s atmosphere, the greenhouse effect, global temperatures, ocean acidification, and sea-level rise. From a long-term point of view, we’d still need to plan …

How Big Was The Universe At The Moment Of Its Creation?

You might think of the Universe as infinite, and quite honestly, it might truly be infinite, but we don’t think we’ll ever know for sure. Thanks to the Big Bang — the fact that the Universe had a birthday, or that we can only go back a finite amount of time — and the fact that the speed of light is …
