In this month's issue of Physics World, Felicity Mellor, a senior lecturer in science communication at Imperial College London, questions whether the requirement of the modern physicist to collaborate and communicate is preventing the intellectual progress brought about by silence and solitude. Drawing on the approaches of Newton, Einstein, Cavendish and Dirac, Mellor highlights the recurring role that silence has played throughout the history of physics and asks if the "enforced...

Quasars Could Be Used To Test Bell's Theorem
2014-02-21 11:59:55

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online MIT researchers writing in the journal Physical Review Letters are proposing an experiment that could test Bell’s theorem. According to the scientists, the experiment could test the 50-year-old theorem to determine whether our universe is based on textbook laws of classical physics or less-tangible probabilities of quantum physics. Physicist John Bell wrote in 1964 that if the universe is based on classical physics, the...

A University of Maryland physicist and colleagues solve a longstanding biological puzzle. College Park, MD (PRWEB) February 17, 2014 Why does a mouse’s heart beat about the same number of times in its lifetime as an elephant’s, although the mouse lives about a year, while an elephant sees 70 winters come and go? Why do small plants and animals mature faster than large ones? Why has nature chosen such radically different forms as the loose-limbed beauty of a flowering tree and the...

Physicist who worked on nobel winning hadron experiment to discuss the God particle at Maker House. (PRWEB) October 09, 2013 Professor Higgs and Professor Englert were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics this week for the confirmation of the Higgs particle (aka the God Particle). But what exactly is that? What does it do? In a way it gives things their mass, but a more appropriate question might be why do things have mass at all? Physicists predicted that the previously undetected particle...

“God or No God — Can Science Answer the Question?” is the topic of physicist Louis Del Monte´s new four-part YouTube video series. Watch the video series to get real answers to one of the oldest questions in both science and philosophy. Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 03, 2013 “God or No God?” will be addressed scientifically by physicist Louis Del Monte in his new four-part YouTube series. Del Monte is tackling one of science´s most controversial...

Einstein Should Share Credit For His Famous Equation

Jedidiah Becker for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Sir Isaac Newton — perhaps the greatest scientific mind that ever applied itself to the mysteries of our universe — once famously stated that his paradigm-changing contributions to science had only been possible because he had stood “on the shoulders of giants.” It was in this way that he showed his indebtedness to the intellectual labors of those who had preceded him and paved the way for his own revolutionary discoveries....

Austrian physicist finds dire warning to humanity in “universal language” from extraterrestrials in Billy Meier´s information Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 11, 2012 With Russia now seriously regarding Apophis as a highly probable threat to Earth in 2036, a physicist´s startling new discovery may add to the certainty that extraterrestrials are urging us to take immediate action to deflect it. The Torino Scale - Red Alert Many scientists, from Carl Sagan, whose novel...

Hunt For The Higgs: A Bet, A Glitch, And A Gateway
2012-07-05 15:29:04

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online About ten years ago British physicist Stephen Hawking was at a conference in South Korea when he made a small wager with University of Michigan physicist Gordon Kane that the long-theorized Higgs boson particle did not exist, a bet that Kane honored four years later, by sending the world renown physicist a check for $100, acknowledging that there was no Higgs. And then, just a few years later, in 2008, when the...

Dwarf Galaxies Observations Provide New Insights On Dark Matter
2012-04-04 06:43:14

[ Watch the Video ] There's more to the cosmos than meets the eye. About 80 percent of the matter in the universe is invisible to telescopes, yet its gravitational influence is manifest in the orbital speeds of stars around galaxies and in the motions of clusters of galaxies. Yet, despite decades of effort, no one knows what this "dark matter" really is. Many scientists think it's likely that the mystery will be solved with the discovery of new kinds of subatomic particles, types...

The Ever-expanding Hunt For The Elusive Higgs
2012-03-07 14:11:54

Scientists working at the US Tevatron particle collider near Batavia, Illinois on Wednesday said they have found the strongest evidence yet for the existence of the elusive “God particle.” They said their experiments mirror those from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Europe that have narrowed the range where the Higgs boson particle could be hiding. The Higgs Boson is the missing link in the standard model of physics and is believed to be what gives objects mass, though...

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...
