Ancient worlds could be kept 'alive' by gravitational nudges

For more than three billion years now, Earth’s ability to support life has been a delicate balancing act. Climatic periods of severe cold or hot have brought life to its knees. Glaciers covered the planet in the “snowball Earth” epoch, which ended some 650 million years ago. During the extremeheat of the early Triassic period around 250 million years ago, tropical sea temperatures exceeded 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

“It is quite surprising that gravity can play any role in quantum mechanics”, says Igor Pikovski, a theoretical physicist working at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics:”Gravity is usually studied on astronomical scales, but it seems that it also alters the quantum nature of the smallest particles on Earth”. “It remains to be seen what the […]
