Latest Mass Stories
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.
An Italian priest has developed a new application for Appleâ€™s popular iPad that will allow priests to celebrate mass using the device at the altar rather than using the traditional Roman missal.
ESA's GOCE satellite has been orbiting the Earth for more than a year and surveying its gravitational field more accurately than any instrument previously.
Reported mid-life increase in body mass index (BMI) may lead to substantially higher risk of postmenopausal breast cancer.
While airplane and rocket experiments have proved that gravity makes clocks tick more slowly â€“ a central prediction of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity â€“ a new experiment in an atom interferometer measures this slowdown 10,000 times more accurately than before, and finds it to be exactly what Einstein predicted.
NEW YORK, Jan.
Most of us are familiar with the term, Body Mass Index, or BMI, as an index to determine healthy body weight.
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...
