Lhc will not Destroy Earth
By: Jordan Cropper
The Large Hadron Collider, or LHC, is indeed the most powerful particle accelerator built yet by mankind. It smashes protons together at speeds to mere thousandths of a percent off 'C', the speed of light that is famously unobtainable by anything except light itself. But...
Thoughts on the Hadron Collider
By: Daniel Silvernail
Anyone who understands physics understands that elctrons are constantly approcahing velocities near the speed of light in our everyday outer atmosphere. To think for one moment that a packet of electrons that are smaller than the head of a pin will create a massive blackhole...
When lightning strikes an airplane
By: Janet Farricelli CPDT-KA
The sky was darkening over the Kansas City Airport on a nippy October morning as a thunderstorm was approaching. As my husband and I got seated and ready for the average 3 hour and forty minute flight from Kansas City to Phoenix, an announcement was...
String theory and the universe
By: DB Kooper
In the natural world theoretical physics uses math and basic physics to interpret and explain information and attempt to rationalize phenomena. Albert Einstein used predictions based on calculations, and those calculations were based on math and theory. He was able to prove many natural occuring...
The Large Hadron Collider: Greatest physics experiment in the world
By: Ms. C. Jones
Far beneath the ground of modern day civilization, beneath the French-Swiss border, lies the greatest particle physics experiment of all time. It's the Behemoth machine that will recreate the "Big Bang" The "Big Bang" as a theory comes from the idea that the universe has...
Time is Relative Relativity Speed of Light 299792458
By: Dave Nocera
Techncially we are all time travelers, sitting at your computer you are moving through time. We are submerged in time and with no effort on our part, we watch the seconds on our clocks tic away. Just as the speed of the river changes slightly...
How gravity actually works
By: R K vanderHoek
To explain how gravity actually works we need to review what science has already told us about this fundamental force of nature that we wouldn't exist without. The formulas for the force of gravitation and that of electromagnetism are identical except electromagnetic force can...
The secret of the EPR experiment
By: Dave Nocera
Scientific American turned down my original article, so I posted it to Helium as the first article in the section under the title: "How to Create a Faster than Light Communications System between Earth and Mars". Helium later changed the title of this section to:...
Is the Standard Model the best Model of our Physical World
By: Christopher Battle
The Standard Model is the best model so far for characterizing the fundamental constituents of our physical world, with the following caveats:- It is admittedly incomplete, as it does not contain gravity. Thus it alone can't fully describe our physical world.- In its current...
By: Dr. Michael Smith
The recent inaugural start of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has once again raised issues of the public's perceptions of science and technology and the purpose of either as an integral part of our society. News broadcasts led with the story of the possibility of...
