On the death anniversary of Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, one of the greatest scientists of the 20th century, a look at the life and work of this Indian-American astrophysicist Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, the Indian-American astrophysicist, was awarded the 1983 Nobel Prize for Physics along with William A. Fowler, for his mathematical theory of black ... (more)
Let's face it - no-one likes to mess up. So when it comes to disappointing GCSE results - it's useful to have someone or something else to blame.
Today, Function Space , the most comprehensive social learning network for science, is announcing the launch of its iOS app.
Editor at Health & Medicine Week -- Investigators publish new report on Amino Acids.
Image Caption: Scientists and study coauthors from Brookhaven Lab's Condensed Matter Physics and Materials Science Department stand beside a transmission electron microscope capable of capturing nanoscale structures.
The discovery of the periodic system of the elements and the associated periodic table is generally attributed to the great Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev.
Physicists have developed new technology to study atomic vibration in small particles, revealing a more accurate picture of the structure of atomic clusters where surface atoms vibrate more intensively than internal atoms.
Researchers at the Universitat Politecnica de Valencia have designed a new device for wireless energy transfer that will, for example, charge mobile phones or laptops without needing wires.
For thousands of years, the massive glaciers of Earth's polar regions have remained relatively stable, the ice locked into mountainous shapes that ebbed in warmer months but gained back their bulk in winter.
I'm not sure whether this slogan is likely to annoy physicists or mathematicians more, but in any case Edward Frenkel deserves some of the blame for this, since he describes the Langlands program as a Grand Unified Theory of mathematics, which further is unified with gauge field theories similar to the Standard Model.
Co Down man Ryan Milligan applied for a grant to study space weather and is now setting up office at Queen's University Belfast, but still plans to drive trucks to relax.
"APS, the world's second largest organization for physicists with a non-profit membership, has chosen Dr. Badhrees as the first non-American woman-physicist to be granted the 'Woman Physicist of the Month' for for her enriching role and positive impact on the physics community," an official at KACST media department said on Tuesday.
It is not the most important payload onboard the "Georges Lematre" - the name that the European Space Agency gave its fifth and last Automated Transfer Vehicle - but the box's contents represent the history that was made and the science that was advanced by the fleet of five spacecraft and their namesakes.
The European Physical Journal C , Vol. 58, No. 4. , pp. 639-707, doi:10.1140/epjc/s10052-008-0798-9 In this paper we describe Herwig++ version 2.3, a general-purpose Monte Carlo event generator for the simulation of hard lepton-lepton, lepton-hadron and hadron-hadron collisions.
WASHINGTON D.C., Aug. 19, 2014 - Organic photovoltaic cells -- a type of solar cell that uses polymeric materials to capture sunlight -- show tremendous promise as energy conversion devices, thanks to key attributes such as flexibility and low-cost production.
Black holes are some of the strangest objects in the universe, and they typically fall into one of two size extremes: "small" ones that are dozens of times more massive than the sun and other "supermassive" black holes that are billions of times larger than our nearest star.
