Scientists Use Neutrons To Search For Dark Energy

Vienna University of Technology With neutrons, scientists can now look for dark energy in the lab All the particles we know to exist make up only about five per cent of the mass and energy of the universe. The rest – "Dark Matter" and...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Without understanding the internal structure in detail, it is still possible for scientists to learn a tremendous amount about neutron stars and quark stars, according to a new study from researchers at Montana State University. "The stars could be the softest or the hardest in their kind, and it wouldn't matter," said Nico Yunes, assistant professor in MSU's Department of Physics. Yunes and his colleague, postdoctoral scholar Kent...

Physicists Discover New Kind Of Friction
2013-05-15 14:09:56

Technische Universitaet Muenchen Whether in vehicle transmissions, hip replacements, or tiny sensors for triggering airbags: The respective components must slide against each other with minimum friction to prevent loss of energy and material wear. Investigating the friction behavior of nanosystems, scientists from the Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) have discovered a previously unknown type of friction that sheds new light on some previously unexplainable phenomena. Friction is...

Plagued by a life ruled by the stress of a birth-defect, surviving abuse, alcoholism, and unemployment, author Richard Murphy dug deep into his source of strength, and found inspiration to carry on and overcome stress. After years of studying, under martial art masters and native elders as well as through life´s experiences, Murphy felt driven to educate people about the strength they have within themselves. His methods can be found in his book, Change Your Stress: Restore Your Freedom...

Classical Physics: Breaking The Limits
2012-06-07 09:24:12

With simple arguments, researchers show that nature is complicated! Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute have made a simple experiment that demonstrates that nature violates common sense — the world is different than most people believe. The experiment illustrates that light does not behave according to the principles of classical physics, but that light has quantum mechanical properties. The new method could be used to study whether other systems behave quantum mechanically. The...

Friction is a key phenomenon in applied physics, whose origin has been studied for centuries. Until now, it has been understood that mechanical wear-resistance and fluid lubrication affect friction, but the fundamental origin of sliding friction has been unknown. Dr. Lasse Makkonen, Principal Scientist at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, has now presented an explanation for the origin of sliding friction between solid objects. According to his theory, the amount of friction depends...

An issue in the world of science: Andrew discovered that Einstein´s law doesn't apply to everything in physics. According to Andrew, Einstein is wrong because E = mc^2 equation applies only to isolated systems, not to everything in physics.

Similar to the way pavement, softened by a hot sun, will slow down a car, graphene–a one-atom-thick sheet of carbon with wondrous properties–slows down an object sliding across its surface. But stack the sheets and graphene gets more slippery, say theorists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), who developed new software to quantify the material's friction. "I don't think anyone expects graphene to behave like a surface of a three-dimensional material,...

Physics is a natural science involving the study of matter and its motion through space-time, along with related concepts such as energy and force. On a broader scale, it also involves the general analysis of nature, conducted in order to understand how the universe behaves. Physics is one of the oldest academic disciplines, perhaps the oldest through its inclusion of astronomy. Physics was part of natural philosophy until the Scientific Revolution in the 16th century, when the natural...

The Seismometer is an instrument designed to measure the motions of the ground. This includes seismic waves generated by earthquakes, nuclear explosions, and other seismic sources. Records of these activities allow seismologists to map the interior of the Earth, and locate and measure the size of the different sources. There are also seismographs, which is sometimes used in place of the word seismometer. However, a seismograph is the older instrument in which the measuring and recording...

General Relativity -- General Relativity is the common name for the theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in 1915. According to general relativity the force of gravity is a manifestation of the local geometry of spacetime. Although the modern theory is due to Einstein, its origins go back to the axioms of Euclidean geometry and the many attempts over the centuries to prove Euclid's fifth postulate, that parallel lines remain always equidistant, culminating with the...
