An explanation of Newton's three laws of motion
By: Clint Rogers
Published in 1687 by Sir Isaac Newton, Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematic, or, Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy, describes not only significant mathematical and physical interpretations needed to understand the motion of objects in our universe, but it formed the basis for all research in physics...
The top 10 Hubble telescope discoveries

Could the sun be used as a way to facilitate time travel? Let's take a look at TV Shows and Movies that have done this before looking at weather it would be possible. Some Movies and TV Shows that have used the sun to facilitate...
The chemical properties of helium-5 (He5) and its potential usefulness
By: Brian Dodson
Helium is a monatomic inert gas that is the second least reactive element in nature. (Neon is still less reactive.) It is also one of the least complex elements, having only 2 protons in its nucleus. Helium's 2 valence electrons reside in a...
