NASA may not have invented Quantum Foam, but they're looking for it. For those of you who don't know what Quantum Foam is, it's as simple as the fabric of the universe. Believe it or not, this concept isn't new to the Twenty-First Century. It's as old as 1955, theorized by a man named John Wheeler.
Quantum Foam is the idea that as we zoom a theoretical(mathematical) microscope into empty space, we will end up finding something at some point. The above picture gives you an idea of the level of insanely small we're talking about here. 10^-33CM. This is within the quantum realm of the Planck Length, which is a measurement of time as well.
How does this idea of Quantum Foam effect us? Well as every day average Joes and Janes it doesn't effect us much. However, in terms of science, Quantum Foam leaves scientists baffled with how traditional Relativity and Quantum Physics break down on such a small scale. Proving the existence of Quantum Foam could fundamentally change how we approach science in the future.
Quantum Foam is chaotic in nature, which could throw many different views in science on it's head. For example: If the universe is chaotic in nature, how is it that so much of the universe is symmetrical? Could this have ramifications for our Holographic Universe theory? Could it help us better understand quantum communications?Read More
