The butterfly effect ( by scanner)

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

The butterfly effect refers to a concept that small causes can have large effects. Initially, it was used with weather prediction but later the term became a metaphor used in and out of science. Does the flap of a butterfly’s wings in Brazil set off a tornado in Texas? The phrase refers to the idea that a butterfly’s wings might create tiny changes in the atmosphere that may ultimately alter the path of a tornado or delay, accelerate or even prevent the occurrence of a tornado in another location.
