All About Nebula—The Clouds Of Outer Space

Despite the word being frequently thrown around in sci-fi media and images of it being frequently used as wallpaper or room decor, many people do not know what a nebula is.

An Introduction To Quantum Mechanics

Tsunamis, being exceptionally treacherous, are impossible to stop, leaving us with the only option of evacuating the area as our survival while abandoning many buildings behind. Not all people escape in time, ending up in a life-threatening situation, in which many of them die. What should we do about this disastrous event and how can we lessen the amounts of deaths because of it?

String Theory— The Supposed Theory of Everything

Our universe is a vast plane of existence, so one can imagine that being able to compile all of its wonders and rules in one theory would be a difficult task. So how can string theory do this?
