Re: Encryption and Court Cases

If a person had done nothing wrong, then no warrant would be requested or authorized and the issue does not apply. The authorities cannot randomly demand data/keys in the same way they cannot search your property without the necessary warrant. As the legislation stands at present you are not being ...

Re: Quarks

That argument wouldn't be correct. The point is that you can split any distance into an arbitrary number of smaller distances, i.e. you can keep dividing to infinity, since to travel a given distance takes a given time if there cannot be a minimum unit of time. If you still disagree then fair enough...

Re: Quarks

Sorry, I don't think I made the argument clearly then, firstly, this is an argument for time being continuos rather than discreet, secondly I heard it during my first year of my Masters degree in Physics, It's actually just a slightly different take on Zeno's paradox involving Achilles and the Torto...

Re: Quarks

Regarding quarks, it is currently widely accepted that quarks are fundamental particles. However, as quite a few people have pointed out that has been said before about atoms etc. Regarding the time question heres a little thought experiment: If time is measured in discreet quantities then for a run...

Re: Physics Mind Bender

The thing with this question is that a single moving charge does not constitute a current. For example, using current density J to express current as I = J (scalar dot product) A. Since the charge passing through any plane A is 0 except for at the exact moment your single charge passes through it yo...

Re: Quantum Physics

Just to give a physics students view on the topic of the level of math required. It really depends why you are interested in the field. It requires very little knowledge of maths to get your head around many of the concepts, but proving why they are true takes a pretty decent level of calculus i.e. ...

Re: A question about general relativity

As already said this is a question about time dilation and special relativity rather than general relativity. The problem with your idea is that time doesn't change as such, simply the time observed by the observer changes. So if you were gone for 2 years according to a clock on earth, a clock insid...

Re: CAN SOME ONE PLEASE EXPLAIN WHAT IS THE POINT IN THIS SITE?

When you ask what the point of gaining access is if you don't want to do anything it gives me the impression you don't have what I consider to be a hackers mentality,
Hackers like to pull things apart just to find out how they work, not to break them, that is why this site has plenty of purpose.

Re: Encryption and Court Cases

The way I see it, if you are innocent of what you are accused you have nothing to worry about in handing over unencrypted data, much like an ordinary warrant, the authorities can only use specific data for which the initial request was made in court. Much the same as a phone tap to gain information...

Re: Multiple Big Bangs

The very first step of creating life (at least the kind we know, with the requirements we know) is to have a planet orbiting a sun. That is the only part he was trying to recreate. However, even that failed because at this point in type there are >trillion planets orbiting suns. And what is the ...
