I was here long before you and your ancestors arrived in North America. Mr. President, I am reaching out to you because I
There is absolutely no reason to believe that a law or a principle should be obvious to students simply because it was discovered by a scientist.
Physics is by consensus! In gravitational theories we have three accords, Relativity, Strings & Quantum (RSQ) theories. Like a board of directors, the physics community, based on empirical evidence, agree to disagree on how Nature works. Nature, herself, has only one vote, and it is a veto.
There's a new film out on Dean Kamen's latest and greatest invention, "Slingshot." That's the name of both the fascinating documentary by Paul Lazarus and Kamen's latest, life-altering brainstorm.
Resistance is futile, so go ahead, "mobile"-ize us! MWC Shanghai, Asia's biggest mobile industry event (July 15-17), features over 250 exhibitors with the pitch that "from connected cars and wearable tech to mobile payments and smarter cities, mobile is revolutionizing and enhancing every aspect of our lives." Okay, cool.
In an April 22 hearing, state Sen. Elbert Guillory (R) made it clear that he would vote against the measure, SB 74. In footage
Centuries from now, when historians look back at the discoveries that have shaped our view of the universe, I believe that the Hubble Space Telescope will have earned its place.
Watching physicist Adrian Bejan as he demonstrates how snowflakes form tells you two things. One, he's not just a scientist. The confidence and balance he projects as he draws are a give-away to his training as an artist and as an athlete. And two, that there is a certain predictability to each snowflake.
Anyone who has studied physics and marketing can observe some very interesting similarities between the concepts of these two seemingly different disciplines. Unlike physics, however, marketing is not often taught according to scientific principles.
405th Anniversary of Galileo's Telescope: Looking Back on How Past Innovation Influenced the Future of Astronomy
Four hundred five years ago this week, Galileo Galilei demonstrated his new telescope to members of the Venetian senate in the Plaza San Marco. This presentation on Aug. 25, 1609, marks the birth of the astronomical telescope and the launching of a scientific revolution.
Given a forced choice between physics and faith, then, some people choose physics and some people choose faith. I think this lose-lose feeling is rooted in a culturally influential but historically false conception of the relationship between science and religion as one of perpetual warfare.
The center of the universe might be closer than you think -- in fact, it might be right under your feet. A conservative Catholic crank, Robert Sungenis, is now resurrecting the long-discredited geocentric model in a bizarre movie called The Principle.
