4th dimension discovery shocks scientists around the world

Higher spatial dimensions are “compactified” into what we know as a three-dimensional world

Scientists have just made an absolutely staggering observation according to a recent study, proving the existence of a fourth spatial dimension.

Researchers from both Europe and the United States believe they have demonstrated yet another dimension beyond the three-dimensional axis of space that everyone knows today, and this fourth one is a bit tricky for the layperson to understand.

It all centers around something known as the Hall effect, which is when scientists restrict an electron to two dimensions and then use high magnetic fields at low temperatures to cause the electrons to move in a pre-determined topological pathway. The current then flows along the very edges of the material.
