Oldest Water

World’s Oldest Water Trapped in a “Shadow Zone” Deep in the Ocean

The age of any ocean water is calculated on the basis of its re-circulation process. Typically it takes few days to few years, to come in contact with the atmosphere. But deep in the North Pacific Ocean, there is a place that has remained trapped in a “shadow zone” 2 km below the sea surface for near about 2000 years. A group of scientists from … Continue reading World’s Oldest Water Trapped in a “Shadow Zone” Deep in the Ocean

Higgs

Quantum Computation and Machine Learning to Find The Higgs Boson

In the 60’s several physicists proposed a mechanism to explain the mass of the most basic building blocks of the Universe. Peter Higgs was one of them and suggested an unstable subatomic particle boson (Higgs Boson) with no spin, electric charge, or color charge responsible for the mass. On July 4, 2012, the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider discovered the boson … Continue reading Quantum Computation and Machine Learning to Find The Higgs Boson
