Scientists Model Rare Ball Lightning With Help From Tangled ‘Skyrmion’ Quasiparticle

There’s an eerie and incredibly rare phenomenon witnessed by few that has long puzzled scientists: ball lightning. These flashes, which typically appear in the evenings during thunderstorms and look like small, bright spheres, have gone mostly unexplained aside from some theories. But now, using some of the most mind-bending physics around, physicists think that they’ve recreated ball lightning, in miniature, in the lab, while at the same time observing a different physical phenomenon in its own right for the first time.

Two Experiments Show Fourth Spatial Dimension Effect

To the best of our knowledge, we humans can only experience this world in three spatial dimensions (plus one time dimension): up and down, left and right, and forward and backward. But in two physics labs, scientists have found a way to represent a fourth spatial dimension. Read More >>
