Uncovering magnetism, from the Earth's core to your physiology and personality
By: Rodney Bartlett
In response to "What is Magnetism?" (Discover science magazine - "Blinded by Science" article - May 2008), here are a few words from one of Mr. Maddox's fellow "Dummies" who no longer has a seat at the dinner table for science (so my words...
Relative
By: Glen R. Taylor
Time is one of the great mysteries of science, and that is not because it is difficult to examine, like some distant star. Its elusiveness is due to its ubiquity in our lives. One way or another, time enters into almost every equation in science...
The basics of Quantum physics
By: John Cowley
"What are little girls made of?"The traditional answer found in the nursery rhyme is "sugar and spice and all things nice". In other words little girls are made of bits and pieces of things, as are little boys although apparently not such nice things...
Reflections on Einstein
By: Steve Marshall
I recently wrote an article on Albert Einstein's religious views, and I submitted it as an historical article. My article was rejected because the editor was of the opinion that creativity in writing should not be a part of an historical article. Views are not...
Relativity Stellar Aberration Ether Theory Michelson Interferometer Einstein
By: Joe Murray
The theory of relative time arose through the six classic pillars of science: a field observation, supporting verifiable measurement, explained by a relevant theory (paradigm), a follow-up experiment, which, failing to support the relevant theory, led to its overthrow and replacement by another theory. See...
Alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC): A simple explanation
By: Francis Jock
Direct current and Alternating current are common terms used to describe the two forms of electricity we use every day in countless different situations. These terms are applied to many different types of devices we have come to take for granted in our age of...
Understanding Time
By: John Cowley
In order to support the idea that time is relative, an epiphenomenon, something that just helps us to explain our conscious experiences; it becomes critical to differentiate between ontological time and interval time. This is more difficult than it first appears since both are involved...
Time Travel Einstein Emc2
By: William Cobbs
A very easy question to answer. Since time does not exist, we cannot travel in it.(See articles on relativity and time). It is a great romance to try to imagine traveling back in time. Theoretically, if one goes into space, and goes even to...
Exploring the theory that time does not exist
By: John Cowley
In order to understand why the writer believes that time is illusionary it will be important to consider how time, as a factor, is used in the process of determining speed. According to Einstein's theory of special relativity nothing can travel faster than the speed...
Is Time Real or Relative
By: William Cobbs
TIME is not only relative, it does not exist at all! TIME has been invented by man to have an orderly scheme of his day and night and other enterprises. No matter what kind of finite factor physicists put upon time, it is still RELATIVE...
