Neutrinos, which are quite similar to the electrons, are subatomic particles which come from the disintegration of radioactive substances. They are one of the few particles that make up the entire universe. They are considered the “baby” particles which have very little electric charge. Weak neutrinos can carry very large parts of information from the universe. Neutrinos have all the needed requirements to be considered in astronomy. They have been around since the birth of the universe. According to the IceCube South Pole Neutrino Observatory, there are so many neutrinos that they combine together to sum up to a temperature of 1.9 Kelvin, which is about -271.2 degrees Celsius (All 1).
“The lights that filled the universe could be channeled, dissected, magnified, and measured by human ingenuity” (enlight, 2). There was a significant breakthrough in regards to what could be done in continuing to explore new theories.
Jennifer Ouellette presents an interesting glimpse at new findings regarding neutrinos. The main aspect the author is focusing on is how neutrinos have once again shown scientists that they are not what they were previously thought to be. Essentially, the author is mostly focused on reporting the new findings of a recent study which show that neutrinos move at a speed faster than light, which changes the notions of how we understood the universe before.
Quantum entanglement, also known as “spooky action at a distance” as first referred to by Einstein, is a phenomenon which occurs when two or more particles interact in such a way that their physical states can be described as one whole system rather than as each particle separately. The particles spin in opposite directions to each other and, no matter how far away each particle is from the other, if one particle changes its spin the other particle/s will instantaneously change their spin too in the exact opposite direction. You can, therefore, determine the physical state of each particle just by examining the state of one particle.
His name is Apollyon, it's Greek for destroyer and he hates it. Apollyon doesn't want to be known as the destroyer of mankind he wants to be known as, Sotiras, the savior of mankind. He wanders the streets of a small fishing village day and night seeking to help keep civilians safe. Vampires are currently in hiding acting as normal civilians but their appetite is none of a normal civilian. Apollyon knows the extents that vampires will go for blood and won't stop until all is safe in this small fishing village.
Few minds of this century have had an impact like that of Stephen Hawking. His discoveries and work have expanded the forefront of knowledge with a likeness to that of Einstein and Newton. Despite the clear adversity Hawking has faced, his achievements have been nothing shore of extraordinary. His work on the understanding of space, time, and the origins of the universe has set the golden standard for theories on the universes beginnings and mysteries, proving a staple teaching of modern education which we may take for granted.
Trying to change scientific theories would not be easy nor would it a safe. “Deeply held convictions had so to be broken in order to arrive at the formation of Galileo and Newton’s ‘classical physics,’ and it was the apparent self-evidence of these convictions that posed a great obstacle to the foundation of modern science. Commonly held ideas were plain not only because they appealed strongly to common sense.” It was hard for the uneducated man to wrap his head around ideas and theories that didn’t have a clear solution or that could be explained with experience. There were a couple theories that were hard to disprove just because they made a lot of sense and seemed to be reasonably explained with empirical data and observations. A good example of this is the explanations used to explain why bodies fall to the ground, bodies fall because they have a heaviness about them and tend to fall towards their natural position at the center of the universe. That is why everything moves towards the Earth because the Earth is at the center of the universe. This theory motion is also intrinsic, which means that the heavier the object the faster it moves towards the center of the universe. Such theories were easy to explain and easy to visually see and experience in everyday life and seemed to be true. The theory of intrinsic motion can be explained simply by dropping a feather and a large stone simultaneously and it could be easily perceived that heavier object is indeed falling faster. We know that this is not true thanks to the conurbations made by Galileo to the scientific study of gravity that objects accelerate downward at the same rate regardless of mass. This discovery is easily demonstrated which is exactly what Galileo did when he dropped two balls of different mass and proved that they hit the ground at the same
According to the article, Theory that Challenges Einstein's Physics could soon be put to the Test, written by Hayley Dunning, the belief that the speed of light is constant develops many various theories in physics. Some researchers have proposed that the speed of light could have been much higher in this
Feynman was born in Queens New York in May of 1918. He was raised by his Mother, a housewife, and his father, a salesman. It is said that his father and mother were both biggest supporters of science. Richard’s father, Melville Feynman, was a business man whom had a passion for science. He motivated Richard to pursue a career in science, something of which he had wanted to do for himself, but could not. His mother, Lucille, encouraged him to find humor in turn for which created a powerful persona for Richard throughout his life.
About Nerf: Nerf has been helping kid's have fun and stay active since 1969. Back then, they started out as a simple orange foam ball and has grown to become one of the most popular toys for kids. Not only are they a toy but they remind kids and adults of ll ages to take a timeout for fun. Remember, it's Nerf or nothing.
Miarecki performed much of the data analysis whilst working toward her PhD as an IceCube researcher. "It's a multidisciplinary idea," she said in a news release. In order to understand if the cross section of neutrinos detected matches Standard Model predictions, the analysis used input from geologists who supplied models of the Earth's interior from seismic studies. With this, scientists were able to compare their data with a simulation of neutrinos passing through the Earth.
Carl Edward Sagan was born in Brooklyn, New York on November 9, 1934. As a little boy he was always fascinated by stars and he believed that there were different life forms on the other planets. This intrigued him to become an astronomer. He kept his dreams and graduated from the University of Chicago with a Bachelor degree. A year later he went back and graduated with masters. He later moved to California where he graduated with his PhD in astronomy and astrophysics. During his life time he succeeded in in writing academic papers, several books, a novel, and even a TV series called cosmos. He also helped to design and maintain the Mariner 2 mission to Venus, the Viking 1 and the Viking 2 trips to Mars. Voyager one, voyager 2 missions to the outer solar system. Which helped form NASA to what it is today. One reason he was so big was because he was also a celebrity scientist that’s why he got a lot of publicity. He was a great man and he took his work very serious. He was probably the biggest scientist in the 20th
The Special Theory of relativity is an acknowledged physical theory that revolutionized advancements in the relationship between space, and time. The theory is one of the most interesting discoveries that are still used today in science fiction movies such as Star Wars, and Star Trek through the use of black holes, and time travel due to it’s astonishing results, and it occurrence at speeds close to the speed light, which can be appealing to a wide range of audience. This was a harvest from six years of extremely handwork by Albert Einstein. Einstein used resources that were widely available to the public due to his economic constraints. It wasn’t until 1905, when Einstein finally had finished and published his discoveries, and gatherings
Bruno’s death served as indispensable sacrifice for modern day cosmology and our scientific community. It ultimately marked the beginning of humanity’s questioning of whether our world is actually what tradition tells us. Whether if it was Einstein questioning Newton’s long held laws of motions or Bohr questioning Einstein’s beliefs on quantum mechanics, history has repeatedly shown that curiosity about what we do not know is integral towards the advancement of science. In Bruno’s
