As time passes, new technology evolves in order to keep time. Soon the trusty atomic clock may be replaced by a nuclear clock, which keeps time to 1/20th of a second in 14 billion years. In early time, the sun or grains of sand in an hourglass kept time. Over the years technology allowed for clocks you could wind, watches with quartz oscillators, and more recently the atomic clock. The atomic clock uses an electronic transition frequency to keep time. Considered quite accurate, atomic...

For many decades, researchers tried to formulate theories"”such as the String Theory"”to account for flaws in the Standard Model of the element, whose spherical design could not account for gravity. Jurjen Van der Wal, a structural and mechanical engineer who understands structural design, conceived a universally fitting foundation and drastically new approach to physics in 'Decoding the Periodic Table.' Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) May 19, 2011 Jurjen van der Wal's scientific...

Researchers from around the world compile more reliable data that will help science and industry For the first time in history, a change will be made to the atomic weights of some elements listed on the Periodic table of the chemical elements posted on walls of chemistry classrooms and on the inside covers of chemistry textbooks worldwide. The new table, outlined in a report released this month, will express atomic weights of 10 elements - hydrogen, lithium, boron, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen,...
