In 2012, the Sun is entering the highest activity period of its 22-year cycle, so the next few years are certain to produce some memorable solar storms. The Earth's magnetic field and ionosphere deal well with mild to moderate solar storms, but extreme solar storms...
Scientists believe they are close to discovering the 'God particle'
By: A.W. Berry
Physicists have been moving closer to confirming the existence of the Higgs Boson particle, also dubbed the “God particle.” On July 4, 2012 an announcement is scheduled to be made regarding the ATLAS and CMS projects conducted via the European Laboratory for Particle...

Solar energy offers one of the truly renewable alternatives to fossil fuels to meet the world’s energy needs. But how do you get electricity from the sun? How do you convert energy from the sun into a form – electricity – you can use...

Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Switzerland, have announced that they have discovered a new particle with properties which would be consistent with the Higgs boson. Although 2 separate teams of scientists had independently confirmed the finding, both teams agree that further analysis...
Relationship between wavelength and frequency
By: Jose Juan Gutierrez
Light and other forms of energy, including sound, are measured by its wavelength and frequency. Wavelength multiplied by frequency is equal to the speed of light. The relationship between wavelength and frequency is that they are inversely proportional to one another. That is to say...
MIT: How tinfoil hats really intensify mind-control
By: Terrence Aym
The infamous tin foil hat—long associated with paranoia, crackpots, or individuals that promote borderline conspiracy theories—actually has some scientific history supporting the odd accoutrement.Although recognized as having some credibility in the past, (a wearer of a tin foil hat being able to...
Boy, 13, creates breakthrough solar technology
By: Terrence Aym
Technological breakthroughs in communications, energy, bio-medicine and physics continues at a dizzying pace. And for those that worry (including some in the federal government) that the U.S. may lose its technological leadership in the future, the youngest generation is proving that concern unfounded.The...
Unexpected applications of Nanotechnology
By: Christyl Rivers
Nanotechnology arose in the 1980’s and is now widely used in medical, structural and health and beauty industries. Working at the nano level means quite small. A nanometer is one billionth of a meter, (nano =billion). That is difficult to conceive, so a practical...

The concept of a Dyson sphere was created by Freeman Dyson, but it is acknowledged that the idea was based mainly on the writings of Olaf Stapledon. Personal facts Freeman Dyson was born in 1923 in the UK, the second child of Mildred Lucy Atkey...
What is a Dyson Sphere?
By: henry kerchief
Dyson spheres are ranked with space elevators and warp drives when it comes to far-fetched ideas and lack of public support, in part because of several variants, with a broad spectrum of feasibility and efficiency, that are floating around, and in part because the most...
