Further inspired by Robert Frost’s form, this poem touches on the very sensitive membrane of a black hole, where although we know physics breaks down, we hope its laws will nonetheless point the way through the chaos of infinities we encounter at a singularity’s boundary. But what happens when things accelerate into a black hole, […]Read more "EQUIVALENCE PRINCIPLES"
HIGHER DIMENSIONS From point to line to plane to sphere we see just three dimensions here, and each dimension has a name that we can easily proclaim. If we would further interact, we must devise the tesseract — a cube that turns its outsides in, spinning in imagination — and thus we have dimension […]Read more "Higher Dimensions"
Unusual for a Shakespearean sonnet, perhaps, Special Relativity is summed up here in iambic pentameter. Press play to hear this read by the author.Read more "Special Relativity"
Anyone who works long enough with words, eventually starts to invent new ones. Just ask yourself what is the word for reverse entropy or look up entropy antonyms in the dictionary or thesaurus. Not there? Then what would be the right word based on established etymology? Hence, I present to you the word “RETROPY,” as […]Read more "Retropy"
Life in interstellar space will have its perks. ASTRONAUTICAL JOYS One day the horizon won’t seem so vast, when we step off the planet of our birth. In space, we’ll look ahead into the past to find a future never seen on Earth. The farther out we look the further back we see to the […]Read more "Astronautical Joys"
SINGULARITY I’m always fascinated when two distinct time frames occur “simultaneously.” Looking from the outside at Alice disappearing into a black hole seems to take forever, thinks Bob, who stays on Earth to observe. Eventually, her light red shifts and fades to the point where it’s indistinguishable from the background of space and the black […]Read more "Singularity"

It would be possible to chart a course for a planet in another galaxy, only to find out its star had already gone supernova before we had even begun our journey. Since, at present, we have no hope of traveling faster than light, we can only obtain distant information at the speed of light, so […]Read more "Sidereal Atlas"
