Where are all the aliens? | Stephen Webb

The universe is incredibly old, astoundingly vast and populated by trillions of planets -- so where are all the aliens? Astronomer Stephen Webb has an explanation: we're alone in the universe. In a mind-expanding talk, he spells out the remarkable barriers a planet would need to clear in order to host an extraterrestrial civilization -- and makes a case for the beauty of our potential cosmic loneliness. "The silence of the universe is shouting, 'We're the creatures who got lucky,'" Webb says.

Bell's Theorem: The Quantum Venn Diagram Paradox

Featuring 3Blue1Brown Watch the 2nd video on 3Blue1Brown here: Support MinutePhysics on Patreon! Link to Patreon Supporters: This video is about Bell's Theorem, one of the most fascinating results in 20th century physics. Even though Albert Einstein (together with collaborators in the EPR Paradox paper) wanted to show that quantum mechanics must be incomplete because it was nonlocal (he didn't like "spooky action at a distance"), John Bell managed to prove that any local real hidden variable theory would have to satisfy certain simple statistical properties that quantum mechanical experiments (and the theory that describes them) violate. Since then, GHZ and...

Bootes Void - The Creepiest Place in the Universe [OOTW]

Bootes Void- without a doubt the darkest, loneliest and largest place in the universe with the exception, perhaps, of the cold spot.

Why are there trillions of stars unaccounted for? Could it be... aliens? Whatever the answer, that's what we're going to be diving into today- so get ready! So say if aliens were really responsible for the Bootes Void, and were coming our way... could we stop them if they tried...
