Solar storm warning system may predict radiation
By: Elizabeth M Young
Given that the world and space are now studded with satellites and sensors like never before, it makes sense that scientists can extrapolate information from past events to predict what will come next. According to Space.com, physicists at universities in South Korea and the...
Is time travel possible?
By: Christyl Rivers
Time travel is more than just possible, it is inevitable. If one gets out of bed at seven a.m. and then one drinks coffee, or tea, at seven-thirty a.m., then obviously, one has just traveled forward in time. The question of time travel...
Why scientists think they have discovered the 'God particle'  
By: Christyl Rivers
Isolating the Higgs Boson particle in the Large Hadron Collider in CERN, Switzerland has provided evidence for the near fifty year old theory of the standard model of modern physics. The Higgs Boson particle is also known as the God particle due to its ability...
Japan launches robotic supply ship to space station
By: A.W. Berry
The Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has launched its third model of unmanned transport vehicles into space to rendezvous with the International Space Station. The cargo module is expected to arrive at the space station on July 27, 2012 containing equipment, experiments and food according...
Getting started with electroplating
By: Paul Watson - 672453
Finishing processes are an important part of production and manufacture for a number of industries. Altering the surface of an item may add an extra dimension to it, not only from an aesthetic point of view but also in a highly practical way that makes...
How to identify the constellation of Cassiopeia in the night sky
By: Jon Barr
The constellation Cassiopeia is home to a few worthy binocular and telescopic targets. The constellation itself is quite bright and average in size. It sits roughly 30 degrees away from the North Star, Polaris. To find the constellation Cassiopeia, it helps to know where the...
How to identify the constellation of Cygnus in the night sky
By: Jon Barr
Identifying the constellations can be challenging to say the least for amateur stargazers. With all the hundreds, even thousands of stars, it can be hard to identify the relative few that make up the constellations that are known today. The constellation Cygnus is among the...
By: Dr. Bryan Katz
The constellation Cygnus, the Swan, is located in the northern sky between the constellations Lyra (the Harp), Draco (the Dragon), Cepheus (the King), Lacerta (the Lizard), and Vulpecula (the Little Fox). Cygnus is one of the few constellations that bears some resemblance to its name...
By: Dr. Bryan Katz
The constellation, Cassiopeia, the Queen, is found in the northern sky relatively close to the north celestial pole. This constellation is circumpolar for all sky watchers who live above 40 degrees north latitude, meaning it never rises or sets. Cassiopeia borders the constellations Cepheus (the...
Circular motion physics concepts
By: David Jacobson
The simplest way to consider the motion of some point mass along a circular trajectory is begin with Newton’s first law: that an object in motion remains in that motion, in the same direction, unless acted upon by an outside force. Since the motion...
