An experiment at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory called the Holometer intends to test several theories about the universe, including the holographic principle.
Through a confluence of events, Benjamin Bederson, who was drafted into the Army in 1942, had a front-seat view of the top secret effort to develop the first atomic bomb during World War II.Bederson, a resident of the New York City borough of Manhattan, had two and a half years of college physics at the time he was drafted.
Next Tuesday is off in the future. It hasn't happened yet and you can't say what it's going to look like.
Scientists have developed what they believe is the thinnest-possible semiconductor, a new class of nanoscale materials made in sheets only three atoms thick.
A Noise Within , the acclaimed classical repertory theatre, presents a free staged reading of Michael Frayn 's Tony Award-winning play Copenhagen, which "soars at the intersection of art and science."
Sometimes they're doctors, or scientists, or intrepid adventurers, and sometimes they're just ordinary people brought along on a journey through space and time.
Journal of Superconductivity and Novel Magnetism , Vol. 24, No. 3. , pp. 1195-1200, doi:10.1007/s10948-010-1109-x The statistical physics of the 3D ordered oxygen interstitials has been measured in La 2 CuO 4+ y using an advanced tool, scanning x-ray diffraction with focused synchrotron radiation.
An ordinary proton or neutron is formed of three quarks bound together by gluons, carriers of the color force.
The mysteries of space are very abundant and fascinating. Who would have thought one day man would reach the stars.
Students in UCSB's Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics' Advanced School of Quantitative Biology used a laser fluorescence droplet-sorting instrument to study how a single bacterium grows into a colony.
While at the Edinburgh International Book Festival , I'd like to pay tribute to one of the city's many great intellectual sons: James Clerk Maxwell , the titanic Victorian scientist whose work was described by Albert Einstein as the "most profound and the most fruitful that physics has experienced since the time of Newton."

Yujun Wang, research associate with the James R. Macdonald Laboratory at Kansas State University, and Paul Julienne at the University of Maryland, looked at theoretically predicting and understanding chemical reactions that involve three atoms at ultracold temperatures.
Though galaxies look larger than atoms and elephants appear to outweigh ants, some physicists have begun to suspect that size differences are illusory.
"Truly I tell you, whosoever says to this mountain, be lifted up and thrown into the sea and does not doubt at all in his heart but believes that what he says will take place, it will be done for him.
