Heat is a form of energy; and like any other form of energy it follows the laws of entropy. This means that heat or thermal energy goes from order to disorder. This change could also be rephrased as going from high concentration to lower concentration...

What is one and one half football fields in diameter and is hurtling in from the outer void to smash the world to bits on the 15th of February, 2013? Nothing that is currently known about, but on that particular day asteroid 2012 DA14 is...
How the earth's magnetic field protects against solar radiation
By: Rex Trulove
The sun produces a continual stream of radiation which flows outward in all directions, some of it hitting the earth. This is a good thing because without the solar radiation, Earth would be a frozen ball of ice or a lifeless hunk of rock like...

Among those who are interested in contacting alien civilizations, who would not like to be the first person to identify a contact? Plenty of interested parties are volunteering at SETI Live to monitor the space waves for any sign of intelligent life outside of the...
What next for the Large Hadron Collider?
By: Elizabeth M Young
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has been a smashing success with records broken at every stage of atom smashing activity. With so many successful missions, it is now up to the scientists to meet their ultimate goal: finding the elusive Higgs Boson, or "God" particle...

Noise is an electrical signal that produces an acoustic sound. Colors are assigned to noise and are matched up based, loosely, on the correlations between the sound wave frequency and the color light wave frequency. Sounds are separated from one another by a statistical characteristic...
Archimedes' principle of flotation
By: Michael Prather - 660563
The principle of flotation, or buoyancy, was first developed by the Greek scientist Archimedes who lived from 287 to 212 B.C. The buoyant force has been known to humankind for ages. Fish have swim bladders that they can inflate or deflate, allowing them to...
