On March 14th, 2013, researchers operating the Large Hadron Collider tentatively confirmed the existence of the Higgs Boson Particle. The search for the supposed “God Particle” began in 1964, when three papers written by separate teams of scientists theorized about the presence of such...
Stephen Hawking warns about aliens and insults the human race
By: John Traveler
With all due respect, perhaps it’s time for Steven Hawking to retire, take down his “scientist” shingle, and quit embarrassing himself. While we all know today that the only kind of science that seems to sell books and Discovery channel advertising, is that...

Flight is defined as the motion of an object in or through a medium, usually through the earth’s atmosphere or space. Flight is as a result of the four basic forces; lift, weight, thrust and drag. When one flies straight and level at a...
Principles of flight: Drag, lift, thrust and weight
By: James Villano
Flight is the result of an elegant balance of thrust, parasitic drag, weight and lift. Any changes in this balance will result in climb or descent. A discussion of these key ingredients is appropriate in understanding this ability to fly envied by man since before...
Principles of flight: Drag, lift, thrust and weight

The airliner or military jet passing majestically overhead seems to move almost magically through the sky, so effortless is the apparent motion. Yet these aircraft weigh tons, sometimes many tons. The one of a kind An-225 Mriya, designed to lift extremely heavy cargoes for the...
When and why space and time became space-time
By: Michael Prather - 660563
Anyone who’s ever dabbled in physics is familiar with Albert Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity . This famous theory describes gravity as the effect of massive objects on the geometry of space, saying that the space around a massive body is distorted in the...
When and why space and time became space-time
By: Dr. Bryan Katz
Today, the term ‘space-time matrix’ is well known to scientists and laypeople alike. Until the early 20th century, however, almost everyone held the classical view that space and time are two absolute, independent entities. In 1915, Einstein’s general theory of relativity transformed that...
