2022-11-23: How To See Black Holes By Catching Neutrinos

  • 17:41: Originally it was thought that strange quarks were required, and we’ve been searching for strange quark matter since the ’80’s.

2022-08-24: What Makes The Strong Force Strong?

  • 02:38: Strangeness just turned out to represent how many strange quarks are present.
  • 03:58: ... is made of three strange quarks - in reality, 3 valence strange quarks - three quarks in the top energy ...

2020-07-20: The Boundary Between Black Holes & Neutron Stars

  • 07:39: Up and down quarks that comprised the neutrons may even transform into strange quarks - something we’ve talked about before.

2019-12-17: Do Black Holes Create New Universes?

  • 09:25: Now it may be that in the cores of the most massive neutron stars, some particles can convert into strange quarks.
  • 09:41: And the lower the mass of the strange quark, the easier it is to convert lighter particles into strange quarks.
  • 09:54: ... if universes evolve to maximize the number of black holes, then the strange quark mass should be optimized to make the cutoff between neutron stars and ...

2019-06-17: How Black Holes Kill Galaxies

  • 13:12: ... nuclear material is composed of strange matter which means up, down, and strange quarks. ...
  • 13:30: ... pressure Release it from the embrace of the neutron star and all the strange quarks probably decay into boring old up and down quarks which would join ...

2016-11-30: Pilot Wave Theory and Quantum Realism

  • 13:34: In that case, any mass of strange quarks will decay into the lighter up or down quarks.

2016-11-16: Strange Stars

  • 05:27: It may be that when neutrons disintegrate under high pressure, half of the down quarks are converted to strange quarks.
  • 08:32: As down quarks flip into the more massive strange quarks, they have to absorb energy from somewhere to provide for that extra mass.

2015-03-18: Can A Starfox Barrel Roll Work In Space?

  • 07:58: Another possibility raise is that maybe there exists an exotic but more stable state of nuclear matter involving strange quarks.
