Physicists Found a Way to Trigger The Strange Glow of Warp Speed Acceleration

Posted by in categories: cosmology, physics

Every time you take a step, space itself glows with a soft warmth.

Called the Fulling–Davies–Unruh effect (or sometimes just Unruh effect if you’re pushed for time), this eerie glow of radiation emerging from the vacuum is akin to the mysterious Hawking radiation that’s thought to surround black holes.

Only in this case, it’s the product of acceleration rather than gravity.
