Thorium: Nuclear 'energy source of the future' set for test
By: Terrence Aym
During the early 20th Century radium held the promise of being the energy of the future. After almost 70 years of fission reactors and more than four decades chasing the elusive promise of nuclear fusion power, the element thorium has risen to the top of...
The laws of physics
By: Ronald Claiborne
Studying the laws of physics begins at a very young age. Many young students begin the study asking questions why it is important to study certain topics in school. Students believe that many of the things they study in school are irrelevant to their lives...
The physics of black holes
By: Minerva
A black hole is a region in space where the high concentration of mass causes such a gravitational field that no material particle, not even the photons of light, can escape from a point called "event horizon" or border. The existence of black holes is...
Exploring the string theory
By: Steven Mars
String Theory is a mathematical theory that was discovered by Gabriele Veneziano in the 1960s. He was a member of the European Organization of Particle Physics Research. It is now known as the Bosonic String Theory. String theory became popular in the 1980s. It attempts...
An overview of the ATLAS particle detector
By: Karyn B Jules
The ATLAS experiment is a collaboration of 3000 physicists from over 174 universities and laboratories in 38 countries around the world. Its purpose is to study the basic forces of physical reality in such detail as has never been possible before. At the hub of...

Atomic clocks are well-known for their reliability and accuracy. Such a clock is controlled by the oscillation of atoms such as cesium or rubidium. The atoms are in turn energized by an electromagnetic field or optical pumping. The first such clock developed in this manner...
Quantum Physics is Time Travel Theoretically Feasible
By: Wayne Leon Learmond
The Time Barrier Will it be feasible one day, to be able to travel back in time? Will we, one day, break the time barrier and create one of the greatest inventions that will ever be achieved by Mankind? To be able to travel...

A physicist named Itzhak Bars has hypothesized the notion of two dimensions of time in a five or six dimensional universe. The extra time dimension could not be experienced in this universe because the extra two dimensions have a higher reality not downloaded to the...
Biographies: Alexander Graham Bell
By: Lijun He
One of the most famous scientists of the late 19th to early 20th century was Alexander Graham Bell. He is most renowned as the inventor of the telephone, one of the main forms of communication today. But who was Graham Bell behind his inventions? What...

How the Gravity WorksThe first scientific explanation was provided by Newton: gravity works through a force, called the force of gravitation, the same as our weight. This force pulls bodies towards each other. The second scientific explanation was produced by Einstein, by improving upon Newton's...
