Researchers working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) said they expect to discover the elusive Higgs boson particle by the end of 2012.
The search for the elusive Higgs boson particle appears on track to become a one-horse race this year, after the United Statesâ€™ Tevatron accelerator was denied an extension to remain operating through 2014.
The January 2011 issue of Harvard Womenâ€™s Health Watch outlines 11 health checks you should routinely have (Vocus/PRWEB) January 05, 2011 Keeping up with new developments is a good idea, but itâ€™s even more important to stick with tried-and-true steps to keep track of your health.
A Princeton scientist with an interdisciplinary bent has taken two well-known problems in mathematics and reformulated them as a physics question, offering new tools to solve challenges relevant to a host of subjects ranging from improving data compression to detecting gravitational waves.
You'd think that people choosing to live near to outdoor recreation amenities would have a lower body mass index or BMI thanks to an increase in all that healthy outdoor activity right on one's doorstep.
NEW YORK, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Harris InteractiveÂ® (Nasdaq: HPOL), a leading global custom market research firm, today announced the launch of its Body Mass Index (BMI) Specialty Panel, developed to accommodate clients interested in exploring BMI-related issues.
The Tevatron accelerator â€œatom smasherâ€ may get three extra years of usage in order to continue its hunt for the elusive God particle.
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...
