Riding Gravity's Wave. Views of Black Holes

A series of six animations by K. P. Rauch, an astrophysicist at the Department of Astronomy, University of Maryland. Source- http://www.astro.umd.edu/~rauch/ViewsBHs/video/ a is the spin parameter of a black hole which ranges from 0 for a static (Schwarzschild) black hole up to 1 for an extreme Kerr rotating black hole, it's thought that most black holes reside somewhere around 0.8. The faster the rotation, the more curved space is and the more reduced the event horizon appears, the marginally stable orbit also reduces to the event horizon at a=1. The accretion disk appears arched over the black hole when looking from the equator because the curved space allows you to see behind the black hole. Blog regarding black holes- http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=120129993&blogID=359982047&Mytoken=FE2495B7-2B82-434B-9D3F53AF736D317640033268 Blog regarding frame-dragging- http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=120129993&blogID=375636535&Mytoken=29F675C8-5440-43B5-9F5412FFCF1A311334569384 Below is a part description, for the full description, go to- http://www.astro.umd.edu/~rauch/ViewsBHs/video/readme.txt Episode I: "The Phantom Monster" (0:10) A stationary observer is located on the spin axis of the hole at r = 10 M. The hole is spun up from a = 0 (Schwarzschild) to a = 0.998 and back to a = 0, and the disk is assumed to respond instantaneously. For this observer the location of the lensed rings is nearly independent of a, whereas the inner disk edge rapidly approaches the horizon as a approaches 1. Episode II: "Into the Fray" (0:58) The viewpoint shifts from the axis (inclination i = 90 deg) to near the disk plane of the a = 0 hole. Once in the plane, the hole is again spun up to a = 0.998 and spun down back to Schwarzschild; Doppler shifts and distortions vary accordingly. Episode III: "Plumbing the Depths" (1:58) The viewpoint slowly descends from r = 10 towards the horizon for an a = 0 hole, as if viewing the camera feed of a tethered probe that is being slowly lowered into the hole. At the photon orbit the probe momentarily stops and pans around to face local zenith (infinity) instead of the hole; just outside the horizon the probe is stopped and reeled in to take a last look back at the lensed disk images. Episode IV: "A One-way Ticket" (2:58) A probe is dropped from a large distance and free-falls into an a = 0.998 hole. The segment begins when the probe reaches r = 6 and displays the fall as recorded by the probe (i.e., constant proper time interval between frames). The view window here is a cut-open cylindrical projection (the left and right edges join and correspond to the view directly *behind* the observer). Episode V: "Pacman Strikes Back" (3:44) The same as IV, only showing the telemetry as received by the distant station, i.e., constant coordinate time interval between frames; as expected, the probe appears to "freeze" at the horizon (r = 1.0632). Watch for the ending Easter egg surprise! :-) Episode VI: "Return to the Dark Side" (4:28) Similar to IV and V, but now the probe slowly spirals into the hole, as if caught in the accretion flow itself. The video is best considered as time-lapse photography taken in equal proper time increments that far exceed the rotational period, which causes the beating effect seen in the hot spots. When the probe passes the inner disk edge at r = 1.237, the multiple lensed images become visible and the universe suddenly looks very confusing! Note that for most of the time, the observer is inside the retrograde photon orbit but outside the prograde photon orbit.

Gravity Wave Astronomy - Paul Groot (SETI Talks)

SETI Archive: http://seti.org/talks The direct detection of gravitational waves will offer a completely new window onto our Universe one that is dominated by degenerate objects, black holes, explosions and mergers. Although this window is so far still obscured a glimpse of its richness can be seen from electromagnetic observations of gravitational wave sources. Dr. Groot will overview the progress in the fields of ultracompact binaries and the promise and results of synoptic surveys such the Kepler observations and the Palomar Transient Surveys. As an aside, and to connect to the SETI mission, Dr. Groot will briefly discuss the possibility of life on planets around white dwarfs as well.

Brian Cox explains Higgs Boson God particle, sub-atomic physics/quantum mechanics.

Quantum mechanics for dummies (like me) you might say... thanks again Brian! You fire the imagination and make even the most complex concepts of theoretical physics digestible. 3 generations of matter (Fermions) exist; Quarks, Leptons & Gauge Bosons... TAU'S have about 10 times the mass of MUON NEUTRINOS (doesn't EVERYTHING?). PHOTONS & GLUONS have no detectable mass (lighweights!). MUONS & STRANGES both have almost the same mass (copy-cats!)... UPS & ELECTRON NEUTRINOS also have similar masses (ditto) TOPS have more mass than any other sub atomic particle (lard-arses!). Mass is expressed in MeV/c and a GeV/c. 1 eV = 1.602176487(40)×10−19 J (the conversion factor is numerically equal to the elementary charge expressed in coulombs). 1 eV (per atom) is 96.4853365(21) kJ/mol. Ahhhh - after dinner sub-atomic particle chit-chat - fascinating really!

Space-Time, Quantum Mechanics, and the Large Hadron Collider | Nima Arkani-Hamed

Nima Arkani-Hamed, Professor, School of Natural Sciences, Institute for Advanced Study http://www.ias.edu/people/faculty-and-emeriti/arkani-hamed February 23, 2011 In physics, the twentieth century started with the twin revolutions of relativity and quantum mechanics. Much of the second half of the century was devoted to the construction of a theoretical structure unifying these radical ideas, confirmed experimentally to exquisite precision over the past three decades. Yet questions remain. The union of quantum mechanics and gravity strongly suggests that space-time is doomed—but what replaces it? The unification of relativity and quantum mechanics predicts violent short-distance quantum fluctuations that make the existence of a macroscopic world wildly implausible, and yet we comfortably live in a huge universe. What tames these violent fluctuations, and why is there a macroscopic universe? A spectacular new experiment—the Large Hadron Collider—is now poised to shed significant light on at least some of these mysteries. In this talk, Nima Arkani-Hamed, Professor in the School of Natural Sciences, describes these ideas and discuss what we can expect to know by 2020. More videos at http://video.ias.edu

This is based on the book by renowned physicist and author Brian Greene, taking us to the frontiers of physics to see how scientists are piecing together the most complete picture yet of space, time, and the universe. With each step, audiences will discover that just beneath the surface of our everyday experience lies a world we'd hardly recognize—a startling world far stranger and more wondrous than anyone expected. Brian Greene is going to let you in on a secret: We've all been deceived. Our perceptions of time and space have led us astray. Much of what we thought we knew about our universe—that the past has already happened and the future is yet to be, that space is just an empty void, that our universe is the only universe that exists—just might be wrong. Interweaving provocative theories, experiments, and stories with crystal-clear explanations and imaginative metaphors like those that defined the groundbreaking and highly acclaimed series "The Elegant Universe," "The Fabric of the Cosmos" aims to be the most compelling, visual, and comprehensive picture of modern physics ever seen. Quantum mechanics (QM - also known as quantum physics, or quantum theory) is a branch of physics dealing with physical phenomena where the action is on the order of the Planck constant. Quantum mechanics departs from classical mechanics primarily at the [[|atomic spacing|atomic]] and subatomic scales, the so-called "quantum realm". QM provides a mathematical description of much of the dual particle-like and wave-like ("wavicle") behavior and interactions of energy and matter. In advanced topics of quantum mechanics, some of these behaviors are macroscopic and only emerge at extreme (i.e. very low or very high) energies or temperatures. The name "quantum mechanics" derives from the observation that some physical quantities can change only in discrete amounts (Latin quanta), and not in a "continuous" (cf. analog) way. For example, the angular momentum of an electron bound to an atom or molecule is quantized. In the context of quantum mechanics, the wave--particle duality of energy and matter and the uncertainty principle provide a unified view of the behavior of photons, electrons, and other atomic-scale objects. The mathematical formulations of quantum mechanics are abstract. A mathematical function called the wavefunction provides information about the probability amplitude of position, momentum, and other physical properties of a particle. Mathematical manipulations of the wavefunction usually involve the bra-ket notation, which requires an understanding of complex numbers and linear functionals. The wavefunction treats the object as a quantum harmonic oscillator, and the mathematics is akin to that describing acoustic resonance. Many of the results of quantum mechanics are not easily visualized in terms of classical mechanics - for instance, the ground state in a quantum mechanical model is a non-zero energy state that is the lowest permitted energy state of a system, as opposed a more "traditional" system that is thought of as simply being at rest, with zero kinetic energy. Instead of a traditional static, unchanging zero state, quantum mechanics allows for far more dynamic, chaotic possibilities, according to John Wheeler. The earliest versions of quantum mechanics were formulated in the first decade of the 20th century. At around the same time, the atomic theory and the corpuscular theory of light (as updated by Einstein) first came to be widely accepted as scientific fact; these latter theories can be viewed as quantum theories of matter and electromagnetic radiation, respectively. Early quantum theory was significantly reformulated in the mid-1920s by Werner Heisenberg, Max Born, Wolfgang Pauli and their collaborators, and the Copenhagen interpretation of Niels Bohr became widely accepted. By 1930, quantum mechanics had been further unified and formalized by the work of Paul Dirac and John von Neumann, with a greater emphasis placed on measurement in quantum mechanics, the statistical nature of our knowledge of reality, and philosophical speculation about the role of the observer. Quantum mechanics has since branched out into almost every aspect of 20th century physics and other disciplines, such as quantum chemistry, quantum electronics, quantum optics, and quantum information science. Much 19th century physics has been re-evaluated as the "classical limit" of quantum mechanics, and its more advanced developments in terms of quantum field theory, string theory, and speculative quantum gravity theories.

Brian Greene - The Multiverse and Its Many Interpretations (Live Interview)

Dr Brian Greene (a pioneer of mathematical physics) gives a brilliant interview about the various different multiverse theories that are currently in progress in the present day science community. From Hugh Everett's "Many Worlds" interpretation to "Super Symmetry" to "Quantum Loop Gravity" and ultimately "11 Dimensional Super String Theory". The most interesting part of this lecture is the discussion about the new immerging theory explaining Dark Energy. It's called "Cosmological Inflation". This being very insightful as it explains Dark Energy as Repulsive Gravity. A stronger form of the traditional Newtonian/Einsteinian gravity that we are use to. We as a species never may be able to answer all the questions or the ultimate question. Why does the Multiverse exist at all. What energy source triggered the Big Bang? But I'm confident in the super intelligent scholars such as Dr Greene are on the case. We are ebbing so much closer and closer to realizing Einstein's dream.

Lisa Randall - Extra Dimensional Particle Resonances at the LHC (2/3)

Professor Lisa Randall, professor of physics at Harvard University, explains some of her theoretical models on extra-dimensional spacetime to theoretical and experimental physicists at CERN and how, by using the Large Hadron Collider, physicists may soon be able to probe into higher dimensional resonances of particles, predicted by 5D Kaluza-Klein Theory, and even the Dilaton's which may exist and are predictions of the S-Duals in 11D M-Theory. Stephen Hawking has also made similar claims, while also stating that cosmological studies done on data from the new Planck Satellite mapping the Cosmic Microwave background may also confirm predictions of M-Theory. This Talk will focus on the Kaluza-Klein mode of the Gluon, the particle which exchanges the strong nuclear force (the color force) on a quantum field scale between quarks. For Unification of all 4 fundamental forces, the Standard Model, non-Abelian gauge groups along with the 5D bulk KK-mode Graviton must all exist on the bulk between the branes, If the Fermions and Gauge Bosons do exist on the Bulk in higher dimensional space, with or without warping, along with the KK-mode Graviton then there must be KK-modes of the gauge Bosons themselves, one of which would be the KK-mode of the Gluon which may be the true form of the gluon itself. A lot of people are sceptical of the KK-mode of the Gluon, mainly becuase it is difficult to resolve in a detector, unlike the KK-mode of the Graviton. The Electroweak sector may also have KK-modes of the W and Z Bosons, which would couple strongly with the Top Quarks. Higher energy Top Quarks are the main probes the KK-modes of Standard model forces and particles and this would be true aswell for probing into Supersymmetry. With The discovery of the Higgs Boson, physicists will be able to confirm if Supersymmetry is observable at LHC energies by studying the digamma decay mode for a discrepancy against the current Standard Model. If the cross-section of the 2 gamma rays emitted in a Higgs decay show a large disagreement with standard model results, then there may be Supersymmetric particles interacting with the Higgs. This may be observed when the LHC is at full operational power in 2015. Along with Supersymmetric particles coupling with the Higgs, certain particles predicted by Kaluza-Klein Theory include the scalar field Radion, or Radigraviton, a light particle which couples with the graviton and has the same decay patterns as a Higgs Boson. Moreover, since in the 5D brane rescales the mass scale of particles, giving them mass in the TeV scale, due to momentum being carried in this brane. Gravity in our dimension is a very weak interaction, and has 1/Planck scaled interactions. However in warped dimensions the gravitational interaction is strengthened by 16 orders of magnitude stronger, as the Kaluza-Klein partner to the graviton scales as 1/TeV scaled interactions. Space-Time warping in higher dimensions lowers mass scales for observed particles, pure Standard Model Gravitons would be of huge mass scales, impossible to reach using human technology. However, near the brane, higher dimensional partners of the graviton would carry its momentum in a 5D brane and would have a rescaled, much lower mass. Gravitons could therefore be generated by the LHC at certain, as of yet, unknown energy modes. Several modes may exist and oscillate at higher dimension modes which may lie outside the LHC energies at some point, as it passes the 5D brane outside the bulk space. Hence, if the LHC does have sufficient energy to reach one of the KK-mode graviton modes then it could be possible to detect Quantum Gravity at the LHC. Higher modes may also allow artificial black holes to be condensed out of higher fluxes of KK-mode gravitons. These black holes may only consist of a few, fermionic states of supersymmetric gravitons at the lowest energy state so it would instantly be destroyed by the Hawking Process. This would be a huge leap forward into studying M-Theory. Lisa Randall is an American theoretical physicist and a leading expert on particle physics and cosmology. She works on several of the competing models of string theory in the quest to explain the fabric of the universe.
