The search for the Higgs Boson Particle, or “God’s Particle”, is something which hits the news headlines every few years. Strangely though, in a world where the media normally focuses on celebrities and the un-newsworthy, the search for the Higgs boson relates to...
Is the big bang a cosmic blunder
By: Glenn William Sherman
Successional Universe Theory For years cosmologists and physicists alike have been trying to understand and explain how the "Big Bang" occurred. There are a few interesting theories that have been developed over time that attempt to explain how the Universe came into existence. Fortunately for...
The cause of the ring around the moon

Spectacular Moon RingLast night Joe and I were out walking the dog. We live in the horse capital of the world, so there is a lot of dark farm land around us, giving us spectacular views of the heavens. I can’t say that I...
Exploring the possibility of parallel universes
By: Christyl Rivers
Is there one or more parallel universes? There are many ways to measure that which is almost beyond measure. Here are a few. If there is just one parallel universe one could measure light, energy, waves, particles, motion, distance and more. Another theory put forth...
Why finding the Higgs Particle is so important
By: Lawrence George
Most of the science that gets reported in the media is directly to do with life: genetic engineering and the science of preventing illness and disease; GM crops and the science of improving food supplies; climate change and the challenge of preventing extinctions and disasters...
Observations reveal dark energy may exist after all
By: Terrence Aym
Dark energy is so bizarre many astronomers and astrophysicists have doubted it exists. But now startling new measurements of the inflation rate of the universe may support the existence of the mysterious energy after all. The energy is believed to be pulling the entire universe...

Photoacoustic Spectroscopy (PAS) is a type of Spectroscopy that uses light or other energy for "photo" and sound for “acoustic.” Spectroscopy, by itself, deals with emitting and absorbing light, matter and energy. PAS translates optical energy to mechanical energy through wavelengths during excitation...
Iran claims to have built working flying saucer
