We have a lot to learn from the humble dandelion.
Here’s a question you never knew you wanted to answer.
Try it at home.
It’s a unique chance to do some top notch science from the comfort of your own home.
Ah, wheeled luggage — a necessary evil.
They never fall but they pour.
The stakes have never been so tiny.
It’s cool, and it’s totally out there!
Is there anything graphene can’t do?
We’re closer than ever to a Theory of Everything.
F.D.C. Willard, also known as Chester, is a cat who co-authored a high-quality physics paper in 1975
Explosions behave quite differently underwater than what you’d see on the surface.
Bagel physics begets a prize.
It could be the key to understanding dark matter.
We just can’t seem to determine exactly how tiny they are.
After the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) took a 2 year hiatus to up its power, it’s finally back, and it’s stronger than ever – strong enough to uncover some of physics best kept secrets. Today, June 3, the LhC started delivering physics data for the first time in 27 months.
Feynman was at times called “The Great Explainer” because of his skill at making complex subjects accessible to students, and while still a professor at Caltech he released his now famous Feynman Lectures on Physics. The three-volume collection has since become the most popular physics text book. Now, the whole collection is available for free, online for your personal consideration.
Physics is a branch of science that interestingly enough developed out of philosophy, and was thus referred to as natural philosophy up until the late 19th century – a term describing a field of study concerned with “the workings of nature”. Here’s a short, very interesting and nice animation showing a short history of physics, from Galileo to Einstein. Hope
Richard Feynman is one of the most known and loved physicists to ever walk the face of the planet. He is known for his research in path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the theory of quantum electrodynamics, and the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium, as well as in particle physics. But perhaps for the most of the
Fantastic news for physics lovers: pretty much all particle physics articles will now be open-source, thanks to a deal between a consortium and 12 journals. In the most remarkable attempt to make hard, peer-reviewed science available to readers, the Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics (SCOAP3) is close to securing all particle-physics articles — about 7,000 publications
