Some mistakes carry more weight than others. But in physics, even a small level of imprecision can change the picture completely...
Science versus philosophy, and at stake is our fundamental understanding of time!
Why do ships made of steel float, while any other pieces of iron like needles or stones sink into the water? The density and buoyancy of the items play a major role in floating. This article explores the science behind the floating of a ship.
Metal, metal, metal...It surrounds you everyday in some form or another. What could possibly be exciting research at the frontiers of the field?
Energy from matter isn't a 100% efficient process, but scientists are working hard on getting as close as possible, with new and novel methods.
Why does time slow down as you approach the speed of light? Find out why in this article featuring Einstein, space travel, light clocks and more.
Quantum entanglement is a tricky topic. Experimentation can help clarify a few things, so check out some examples.
Explore the concepts of Newton's three laws of motion, which describe the relationship between a body and the forces acting upon it and its motion in response to those forces. This article includes illustrations, scenarios, and examples for the first, second, and third laws of motion.
Quasiparticles? Spin Waves? What is going on here?
As we gain deeper understanding of quantum systems, technology will also improve because of it. SQUIDs are but one example of this fascinating field.
We may be on the threshold of some serious answers to how physics is all connected. But first, we need to do some testing and find out our viable options.
Man has taken many inspirations for soaring the skies, but nature has held some secrets that we are only now uncovering...
How to understand the principle of Archimedes, buoyancy and how it affects ships, divers, buoys, submarines, hot air balloons and other submerged and floating bodies.
Humans love patterns, but what if there is a sneaky one across the whole Universe?
Another day, another particle physics mystery to unwrap. Let's see what beauty hadrons reveal about the Universe!
Yes, it's a film title, but terminal velocity is also the maximum velocity reached by an object as it falls through a fluid. This article explains how it works.
Making enough electricity for our needs is getting tricky. What alternative methods are there?
Understanding the structure of the Universe seems impossible. But through clever science and surprising math, a pattern emerges: The Cosmic Web.
