Case Western Reserve Theorist Develops Incomparable Model that Unifies Physics, Chemistry, and Biology The earth is alive, asserts a revolutionary scientific theory of life emerging from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. The trans-disciplinary theory demonstrates that purportedly inanimate, non-living objects–for example, planets, water, proteins, and DNA–are animate, that is, alive. With its broad explanatory power, applicable to all areas of science and...

World's Greatest Minds Answer: 'What's Your Favorite Theory?'
2012-01-18 05:48:29

At the beginning of each year, master of ceremonies for the science website Edge.org John Brockman asks his cadre of world-renowned thinkers to reply to a single question of eminent significance. This year, he prodded these legendary brains to answer the slightly cryptic: "What is your favorite deep, elegant or beautiful explanation?" In previous years, Brockman has probed scientific minds to name the most important invention of the last two millennia or to explain how the Internet is...

Planck's HFI Completes Survey Of Early Universe
2012-01-17 04:52:47

The High Frequency Instrument on ESA's Planck mission has completed its survey of the remnant light from the Big Bang. The sensor ran out of coolant on Saturday as expected, ending its ability to detect this faint energy. "Planck has been a wonderful mission; spacecraft and instruments have been performing outstandingly well, creating a treasure trove of scientific data for us to work with," said Jan Tauber, ESA's Planck Project Scientist. Less than half a million years after the...

Dark Matter Mapped On Largest Scale Observed
2012-01-10 06:03:52

Astronomers from the University of British Columbia and University of Edinburgh have mapped dark matter on the largest scale ever observed. The findings reveal a Universe comprised of an intricate cosmic web of dark matter and galaxies that span over a billion light years across. Researchers analyzed images of about 10 million galaxies in four different regions of the sky, and studied the distortion of the light emitted from these galaxies. "By analyzing light from the distant...

Physicists Set Strongest Limit On Mass Of Dark Matter
2011-11-25 04:21:29

Brown University physicists have set the strongest limit for the mass of dark matter, the mysterious particles believed to make up nearly a quarter of the universe. The researchers report in Physical Review Letters that dark matter must have a mass greater than 40 giga-electron volts. The distinction is important because it casts doubt on recent results from underground experiments that have reported detecting dark matter. If dark matter exists in the universe, scientists now have set the...

Image Caption: The Hubble Extreme Deep Field (XDF) was completed in September 2012 and shows the farthest galaxies ever photographed by humans. Each speck of light in the photo is an individual galaxy, some of them as old as 13.2 billion years; the observable universe is estimated to contain more than 200 billion galaxies.

Physics

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...

Lyra Constellation -- Lyra (the lyre) is a prominent, although fairly small, northern constellation. It was one of Ptolemy's 48 constellations, and also counts among the modern 88 constellations. Its brightest star is Vega (Alpha Lyrae), which together with Altair (Alpha Aquilae) and Deneb (Alpha Cygni) forms the large asterism known as the Summer Triangle. Beta Lyr is a half separated (i.e. one of the stars reached its Rochevolume) eclipsing binary of a cream-white colour. The...

Cygnus Constellation -- Cygnus (the swan) is a northern constellation. It was one of Ptolemy's 48 constellations, and is also one of the 88 modern constellations. Because of the pattern of its main stars, it is sometimes called the Northern Cross (in contrast to the Southern Cross). The bird extends over the summer Milky Way, appearing to fly south. Notable features Cygnus contains several bright stars. Deneb, α Cygni, is an extremely brilliant star, very prominent despite...

Centaurus Constellation -- Centaurus (the centaur) was one of the 48 constellations listed by Ptolemy, and counts also among the 88 modern constellations. A constellation of the southern hemisphere, mentioned by Eudoxus (4th century B.C.) and Aratus (3rd century B.C.), Ptolemy catalogued thirty-seven stars in it. It contains Proxima Centauri, the red dwarf that is the nearest known star (other than the Sun) to Earth, as well as Alpha Centauri, which is a double star to which Proxima...
