When I became involved in the nuclear waste issue in 1980, the Concerned Citizens of Manitoba (CCM), attempted to locate scientists in a variety of disciplines who could help us in our effort to gather and analyze information to deal with the underground radioactive waste...

If string theory is the ultimate, we are stuck with a number of unknowns in ten dimensions. This writer is of the opinion that we can develop a simpler, easier to understand model by the use of a little logic. Step one. Find an alternative...

Have you ever wished upon a falling star? You have seen a meteor."Meteor" is the scientific name for the flash of light in the sky. They appear when a meteroid enters Earth's atmosphere. The air friction causes it to glow and spreads out a...

If one defines a time machine as a device that allows something to move forward or backwards at will on our conception of the universe's relatively linear timeline, then NO, time machines do not exist.I personally consider clocks to be a form of time...

Whenever "Gravity" is discussed as a force, there seems to be forgotten the first law of forces that we supposedly learned in elementary physics. "Every force is opposed by an equal and opposite force." The latest example of this seems to be the postulation...

Spartan program as a useful tool for modeling chemical reactions in research and education
By: Tarek Musslimani
Abstract Molecular modeling of chemical reactions using Spartan programs has proven to be a useful exercise yielding both thermodynamic and kinetic information about Diels-Alder electrocyclic systems comparable to experiment. The program suite is user friendly for both undergraduate and graduate students not familiar with the...

Space-time has at least two tensors or dimensional components through which objects may exist. An object has just so much objectness or potential to be in those dimensions. Within relativity theory criteria an object with mass approaching the speed of light has a proportionate increase...
