Latest Mass Stories
Scientists working at the Large Hadron Collider at the CERN may have gotten their first look at the so-called "God particle" -- the fabled massive elementary particle known as the Higgs boson.
A survey of nearly 4,000 Americans finds that obese women reported significantly worse health than obese men.
DAYTON, Ohio, May 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- No one should ever accuse Dayton's performing arts community of not thinking big. Performances of Bernstein's eclectic stage production MASS are almost unheard-of, even in major metropolitan markets.
The obesity problem plaguing Canadians is a story heard frequently these days.
The next time you are in Pisa, try looking at its tower from a different perspective.
A large cohort study following 37,000 teenagers for 17 years found that an elevated, yet normal range Body Mass Index (BMI) constitutes a substantial risk factor for obesity-related disorders in young adults (age 30-40).
A team working with Europe's GOCE satellite has shed light on the way the Earth looks from a gravitational point of view.
Chinese people with a body mass index (BMI) of 24-25.9 had the lowest risk of death.
A new way to measure obesity in people without the use of scales has been developed by US scientists.
A reliable and trustworthy system of weights and measures is vital for economic activity.
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...
