Breakthrough Junior Challenge – Black Hole Information Paradox

Dear all,

I have decided to submit an entry to this year’s Breakthrough Junior Challenge, which is a competition in which you have to make a 3-minute video explaining a scientific concept/idea to a general target audience. I chose the Black Hole Information Paradox as my topic because I was reading into the Holographic Principle over the summer and fell in deep haha.

The following is my video – I hope you like it and could give it a thumbs up on Youtube if that’s a possibility.

And..check out the Breakthrough Junior challenge website!

Thoughts #1 – Higher Physics Notes

Just a short thoughts post. These may be regular and spontaneous 😊

So as a high school student I am extremely excited to have received the second part of the Dynamic Universe notes today for the Higher Physics course – which has a very pretty image of the Crab Nebula taken by the Hubble on the front cover – that covers most of the theoretical sections of the first unit.

We are finally on the cosmology and astrophysics element of the course after doing months of motion equations. I had a skim through the notes and it’s looking like it’s going to be a fun journey. Amazing feeling when the Scottish Qualifications Authority think you’ve enough maths knowledge to include a little of the exciting physics e.g. Relativity. Though because of our still limited mathematical knowledge, we’ve barely touched to surface. Long way to go, high school physics!

Have a nice day,
