The Company Further Penetrates the Energy Sector in Upstream and Midstream Operations ZANESVILLE, Ohio, May 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- AXION International Holdings, Inc.
In Part I, Vanderbilt’s Professor Tom Weiler laid out for us his theory of how the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) might produce time traveling particles. Here, in Part II, we find out what he expects for the future of the LHC and his theory, and what the theory’s realization could mean for mankind.
Could the Large Hadron Collider be cooking up a time traveling particle? We explore this theory and more with Vanderbilt Professor of Physics, Tom Weiler.
After nearly three decades worth of waiting, researchers working at the world’s biggest particle collider confirmed on Wednesday that they had observed an extremely rare event that provides new evidence to support the so-called Standard Model of physics.
TORRI DI QUARTESOLO, Italy, May 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Italian company belonging to the Malacalza Family has been awarded the contract for
The Large Hadron Collider is in the bullpen, warming up and getting ready to get back into the game, as the massive particle accelerator in Geneva, Switzerland has smashed particles together for the first time since restarting last month.
The famous Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is expected to restart proton collisions in mid-June, after being fired up again in early April following a two year break for upgrades.
Theoretical nuclear physicist presents free lecture at Science Museum of Virginia on Wednesday, April 29 at noon. Richmond, VA (PRWEB) April 21, 2015
During an experimental run at the US Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, New York, the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) set a new record for producing polarized proton collisions at 200-giga-electron-volt collision energy.
Revenues Grew to $14.4 Million; Stronger Demand in 2015 ZANESVILLE, Ohio, April 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- AXION International Holdings, Inc.
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...
Physics is the scientific study of matter and its motion through space/time and its derivitives, including energy and force. It is generally the analysis of nature and is conducted to help us understand how the universe behaves. Physics comes from the Greek word physis, meaning "nature". It is among the oldest academic disciplines, and perhaps the oldest pertaining to astronomy. Physics has been considered synonymous with philosophy, chemistry, mathematics, and biology for more than 2000...
WIMP -- In astronomy, WIMPs, or weakly interacting massive particles, figure into one explanation of the dark matter problem. The particles are called "weakly interacting" because they seem not to have much interaction with normal matter (electrons, protons, and neutrons) other than gravitational attraction (thus "massive"). Assuming that there are Weakly Interacting Massive Particles, these particles would then fall out of equilibrium with the universe when they are non-relativistic....
Strange Matter -- Strange matter (also known as quark matter) is an ultra-dense phase of matter that is theorized to form inside particularly massive neutron stars (which are then known as "strange stars" or "quark stars"). It's theorized that when neutronium is put under sufficient pressure due to the gravitation of a large neutron star, the individual neutrons break down and their constituent quarks form strange matter. Strange matter is composed of strange quarks bound to each...
Massive Compact Halo Object (MACHO) -- Massive compact halo objects, or MACHOs, are a type of astronomical body proposed as one possible explanation for the presence of dark matter in galactic halos. A MACHO is a small chunk of normal baryonic matter, far smaller than a star, which drifts through interstellar space unassociated with any solar system. Since MACHOs would not emit any light of their own, they would be very hard to detect. Recent work has suggested that MACHOs are not...
