Tevatron Announces Find Higgs Finding Ahead Of CERN's July 4 Announcement
2012-07-02 14:17:21

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Tevatron scientists have made a lackluster announcement before Wednesday's big event, by admitting they are still uncertain about the existence of the God particle. Just two days before the highly anticipated announcement of the latest Higgs-search results come out from the Large Hadron Collider in Europe, the U.S. Department of Energy´s Tevatron collider scientists failed to announce a finding first, but did present more...

Fatness Could Be Next Global Threat
2012-06-19 04:53:26

As people around the globe continue to get fat, researchers now say that gaining weight may be a bigger threat to global food resources than having an extra billion people. Researchers found that if the entire human population stepped on one massive scale, the weight would read 632 billion pounds. During the study, the team obtained information about the average body mass index of people in each country, and calculated the percentage of the population that is overweight and obese....

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com Researchers at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) are closing in on the so-called ℠God Particle´ that is the last major missing piece to the theoretical Standard Model of how the universe works at its most basic level. The God Particle, more properly know as the Higgs boson, is a hypothetical particle that exists throughout the known universe and when fit into the Standard Model, explains why fundamental particles like quarks...

The Director of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) says that he is confident that his group will have proven the existence of the Higgs Boson before the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is turned off for upgrades at year's end. Speaking at the Hay Festival on Saturday, Dr. Rolf-Dieter Heuer said that the LHC will be closed down at the end of 2012 and will remain non-operational for upwards of two years, during which time it will receive upgrades to enhance its power and allow...

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.

World’s Most Sensitive Nanomechanical Sensor Revealed
2012-04-04 12:22:20

A team of physicists in Barcelona, Spain have for the first time fabricated and tested the world´s most sensitive Nanomechanical sensor, capable of detecting changes in mass of 1.7 yoctograms -- roughly the mass of a single proton. Team leader Professor Adrian Bachtold, of Catalan Institute of Technology´s Quantum NanoElectronics Group, and colleagues used the sensor, which is similar to a guitar string vibrating at very high frequencies (2 GHz), to compare the resonating...

New research, published by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), takes a significant step towards changing the international definition of the kilogram — which is currently based on a lump of platinum-iridium kept in Paris. NPL has produced technology capable of accurate measurements of Planck's constant, the final piece of the puzzle in moving from a physical object to a kilogram based on fundamental constants of nature. The techniques are described in a paper published in Metrologia...

Satellite -- A satellite is an object that orbits another object. With sufficient tangential velocity, the object does not collide with the primary object it orbits, but maintains a distance from that object as the rate at which it falls towards that object is similar to the rate that it travels away, thus the object orbits the primary object and becomes a satellite. In other words: gravitational force serves as the centripetal force needed to make the object circle the primary...

Gravitational Lens -- A gravitational lens is formed when the light from a very distant, bright object (such as a quasar) is "bent" around a massive object (such as a massive galaxy) between the bright object and the viewer. The process is known as gravitational lensing, and was one of the predictions made by Einstein's general relativity. Description In a gravitational lens, the gravity from the massive object bends light as a lens might. As a result, the path of the light from a...
