Book reviews: Surely You're Joking Mr. Feynman, by Richard Feynman
By: Molly Froerer
Richard Feynman is a Nobel-winning scientist who worked with Oppenheimer and Einstein on the atomic bomb, was a professor at Cornell, and gave lectures on physics throughout the world. He also has a sense of humor and can write. This is further proof that the...

Today, of course, we know that an eclipse is simply an astronomical event when the Moon casts a shadow on the Earth (Solar eclipse) or the Earth casts a shadow on the Moon (Lunar eclipse). They are somewhat a rare phenomena at any specific place...
Chemistry science fair projects: Optical rotation of different chemicals in solution
By: Ernest Capraro
By middle school, most students are aware that prisms can bend light. It isn't until high school physics that polarization usually gets discussed, and even then only in basic terms of polarizing filters and intensity. This is a chance to explore how certain chemicals interact...
Where UFOs come from
UFO
By: Vincent Maxwell
Unidentified Flying Objects have been something that has always fascinated the masses. The crazy stories, photographs, and the fantastic movie plots about their eventual taking over of Earth. But really where do they come from? Well as disappointing as the answer is, it does not...

While the country of Russia was burdened with the all powerful sickle and hammer, there were many advances made in the areas of Science and technology. If anyone doubts this, ask yourself who put the first satellite into orbit? As time marches on we find...
Chemistry science fair projects: Evaluating water purification techniques
By: Ernest Capraro
INTRODUCTION Water purification is an important technology. It has applications around the globe, for every person needs and deserves clean water to drink, be it on a camping excursion, recovering from a natural disaster, or simple daily living. There are many ways by which water...
Isaac Newton's Three Laws of Motion
By: Jade Twits
Isaac Newton, a famous physicist, developed three laws of motion in 1687. The universe and every one of us obey these laws every day with every single movement that we make. These laws and examples of each are detailed below. Newton's First Law of Motion...
Chemical properties of noble gases
By: Jade Twits
Noble gases could possibly be the most 'perfect', yet least interesting elements out there. You won't see any fancy fireworks or reactions from them. In fact you might not see anything at all when you look at one - because they are nearly always gases...
Theology of the universe before the Big Bang
By: Payyan
Energy Loss - Death and Decay Have you ever thought why water flows down hill? Why it is easy to destruct but difficult to construct? Why death happens? Why relationships fail? In nature while construction continues from one side, destruction goes on the other side...
The basics of redox reactions
By: Mishra Planeswalker
Redox reactions occur every day in the world around us. They may be subtle, such as a common breathalyzer test, or have catastrophic consequences such as the burning down of a building. They may be spontaneous (and happen instantly) or non-spontaneous (and happen over...
