For those of you who like video games and science fiction stories and serious modern physics, this is a nice combination to take a look at and think about! Could our lives and this universe we perceive be part of a, effectively, a video game? Scientific American has an article about some bizarre theoretical possibilities that arise when we think of multiple, hidden dimensions along with other big ideas in modern physics. Will it ever be possible to find evidence for something like this??? Time will tell! Take a look!

The first week of October is usually Nobel week. Check out the science winners:
The Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology goes to 3 Americans for discovering the Hepatitis C virus, which affects millions of people worldwide.
The Nobel Prize in Physics goes to 3 (a Brit, German, and American woman; only the 4th woman in history for a Physics Nobel!) who did pioneering work in black hole research.
The Nobel Prize in Chemistry goes to 2 women for the first time, for developing CRISPR technology and methods.
And congratulations to the World Food Programme, which won the Peace Prize - they fed over 100,000,000 people this past year around the world, during the COVID pandemic. Amazing!

Some fascinating new results from studying more viscous fluids have been done and captured on video. Check this out if you want to see some strange, fascinating fluid effects. Perhaps there are some things to try in a lab if one could set up similar systems!
