Is the Standard Model the best Model of our Physical World
By: Moshe ben-Avraham
The Standard Model is hands down the most precisely and thoroughly tested physical theory of all time [See the introduction to Dr. Steven Weinberg's three volume "The Quantum Theory of Fields"]. The mathematical structure of the Standard Model is based on a branch of mathematics...
Is Time Real or Relative
By: Moshe ben-Avraham
In the articles "Exploring the theory that time does not exist" it has been suggested that time does not exist. Although this view may at first seem attractive, the view becomes untenable upon closer examination for several reasons.While the contention that time is measured...

In his work, 'A Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism', James Maxwell wrote: Faraday, in his mind's eye, saw lines of force traversing all of space, where the mathematicians saw centers of force attracting at a distance. Faraday saw a medium where they saw nothing but...

The primary pragmatic obstacle to human expansion into space is unquestionably economic. The technological issues, even the issues of countering the physical stresses on the human body, CAN be overcome- if a practical motive exists to do so. In this sense, economics is not just...

NUCLEAR FISSION AND FUSION EXPLAINEDI. INTRODUCTIONThe terms fission and fusion identify two types of reactions that involve the nucleus of atoms of matter. Matter consists of molecules and elements. A molecule is a chemical combination of two or more elements. For example, water is a...
Could there be a Basic Particle
By: W. Diane Van Zwol
The Unknown Basic Particle: The Invisible ButterflyWhen we see a question like this, it would appear that the entire field of physics is far too broad for one to respond to this question, in any way that could be truly positive or constructive. Personally, since...

Endless Universe: Beyond The Big Bang - Paul J. Steinhardt and Neil TurokDoubleday, 2007Book ReviewThere are some theories that are generally accepted, such as Einstein's Theory of Relativity. Then there are those that people grapple with, such as the Big Bang Theory. Why? Because some...

There has been a battle of models on the subject of light since the 1600s. (Actually, for much longer. The ancient Romans believed the 'eyes' shot out beams of light.) The currently popular photon model has been in use for a hundred years, but...

What is gravity? Gravity's explanation is the holy grail of physics. Einstein spent the latter part of his career trying to tie gravity and electromagnetism together. String theorists believe gravity comes from outside our own universe and is weakened significantly, resulting in what we experience...

Time is an illusion. Time is as elusive as the sound of one hand clapping. Time is humanity's concrete attempt to quantify an abstraction: its own - *our* own - conceptual child - its...its...inaccurate conception! In other words, time is bunk. What presents...
