A brief history of Quantum mechanics.
By: William Callis
RUBBER BANDS AND STRINGS WHAT HAPPENED TO PHYSICS? In the early 1900's, after Albert Einstein finalized his relativity theories, he thought that he could find proof that unified all four physical phenomena. These four forces are: electromagnetism, gravity, the strong nuclear force (which holds the...
Nanoassembly and the possible future
By: Pavel Podolyak
As of today, every major state power in the world is actively pursuing nanotechnological breakthroughs to give itself a geopolitical advantage. Public and private enterprises are seeing sharp increases in financial and logistical support. Although the global economic depression weighs down the hands of many...
Why objects float
By: Bryan Uber
Why Objects Float? The reason an object floats is due to the object's density in relation to the density of the liquid or gaseous material it is emerged. An example of an object floating is a hot air balloon. The hot air balloon floats...
Intermediate physics: Explaining electrical fields
By: Jacob Stanley
The first fact most students learn about electricity and magnetism is that there exists a physical property known as charge, which can be positive or negative. Two particles of like charge repel one another, and two particles with opposite charges attract one another, with...
What is the nature of heat?
By: Paul Morley
Heat is a form of energy associated with temperature and is more correctly termed thermal energy. In fact the term heat is used to describe the transfer of thermal energy from one substance to another. For example, the end product of a radiator is the...

Snow machines, which utilize various means in order to produce frozen precipitate similar to real snow, range in complexity from a simple two part assembly to a vast assembly run by computers. All snow machines regardless of design require two things: An adequate water supply...

Is time a dimension the way the three dimensions of space are? Are the past and the future places we could travel to if we had the technical means of getting there? I don't believe so. I believe all we can retain of our past...
Biography: Abdus Salam
By: Kevin Thalersmith
In the international world of science, it seems all the great physicists hail from a few select countries, like America, Germany, and Great Britain. Few would think a great scientist could come out of Pakistan. Well, those people would be shocked to learn about Abdus...
Nanotechnology: The science of the small
By: Rick Badman
Nanotechnology holds great promise and problems in the future. When applied to medicine, nanobots could repair the body internally, attack diseases, do surgery, and protect the body from attack. Nanobots could make the body better and allow those that can't function normally to live normal...

While there is an almost constant stream of small advancements in physics, few things really constitute a leap. Only discoveries such as gravity, relativity, and atomic structures are given this lofty place in physics. The next leap in physics must be one with implications that...
