Was the Apollo Moon Landing Real or a Hoax
By: James D. Hoyer
Any one who would to take the time to read a good report on Apollo missions then research the answers with an open mind, then there would be no way they could not believe that we had actually walked on the moon. The whole world...
Book reviews: Quantum Theory Cannot Hurt You, by Marcus Chown
By: Magda DH
Classical physics, for the most, was concerned with (and reasonably good at explaining) medium-scale phenomena: and still now, as when they were discovered, Newton's laws allow us to quite accurately predict behaviour of roughly human-scale objects. Newton's laws and classical physics in general, fail when...
Planet facts: Uranus
By: Frances Stanford
Uranus is the seventh planet from the sun and was the first to be discovered with the use of a telescope by William Herschel in 1781. It is barely visible to the naked eye and through a telescope it looks like a green-colored disc. Except...

Helium is an element that is fairly common but often overlooked. It's found in the air all over the world but primarily comes from natural gas deposits. It is a clear gas that is lighter than air. It was discovered in 1868 on the...
Book reviews: Moon: Science, History, and Mystery, by Stewart Ross
By: Magda DH
By now we should be living in colonies on Mars and still using computers that take up a whole room: futurologists have a talent for getting things spectacularly wrong, but their predictions express the human ability to dream and transcend its limitations and conditions: we...

How James Chadwick discovered the neutron
By: Ken Parelius
Prior to 1932, the accepted model of the atom was that it contained only positively charged protons and negatively charged electrons.. Physicist Sir James Chadwick had noticed a discrepancy between the atomic numbers of atoms and the atomic weight. For example, the element Helium...
