The effort to unify quantum mechanics and general relativity means reconciling totally different notions of time.
Insights about time’s arrow from a liquid crystal universe.
What insights can an LCD display give us about time's arrow?
According to our best theories of physics, the universe is a fixed block where time only appears to pass.
Bizarre quantum bonds connect distinct moments in time, suggesting that quantum links — not space-time — constitute the fundamental structure of the universe.
The irreversibility of time may be a clue as to what makes up the universe’s dark matter.
A new theory explains the seemingly irreversible arrow of time while yielding insights into entropy, quantum computers, black holes, and the past-future divide.
A radical theory predicting the existence of “time crystals” — perpetual motion objects that break the symmetry of time — is being put to the test.
