Perhaps nothing in the entire lexicon of actual science invokes more vivid futuristic images than the term antimatter. After all, antimatter was the fuel of choice for all of Starfleet Command and the Starship Enterprise in particular. In the new novel "Angels and Demons"...
Atomic physics: Quarks and anti-quarks
By: Dominic Clacy
Part of the Standard Model of Particle Physics, Quarks are considered a fundamental constituent of matter. When Quarks are combined one forms heavier particles called Hadrons, examples of which are the Proton and Neutron. In total the Standard Model contains six Quarks grouped into...

Is time travel possible? The answer depends on what exactly you are referring to by 'time travel." It appears at first sight to be a simple phenomenon, going backwards and forwards in time, as if time were an elevator and we pushed the buttons...
By: Dominic Clacy
The Standard Model describes the universe in terms of six Quarks, six Leptons and interacting force carriers called Bosons. The Photon, Gluon and the Z and W Bosons mediate the Electromagnetic, Strong and Weak forces respectively. The theory does not contain a Gauge description of...
Large Hadron Collider Black Hole
By: Mark Waybill
The Large Hadron Collider, in my opinion, will not and does not have the potential to destroy the Earth. The project is backed by many people, and a good number of these people are scientists who have experience and knowledge in the area for which...
Book reviews: The Blind Watchmaker, by Richard Dawkins
By: Philo Gabriel
This is a book about evolution, but not as much about the evolution/creationism conflict as one might expect. I kind of like that. I've read quite a few articles and books by scientists directly debating and debunking creationism, and absolutely there's a place for that...
The best sources of energy for the future
By: Walt Robbins
Back in the late 1950's, ideas for the use of small nuclear reactors for various purposes were in vogue. During that period, when I worked for the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, I heard speculation over the possible use of atomic energy to run our...
How to contact Bogdan Maglich
By: Brian Dodson
How to Contact Bogdan Maglich Bogdan Maglich is a Serbian-born physicist, receiving his Ph.D. in high-energy physics from MIT in 1959. In the following years his rather successful research career took him to Berkeley, CERN, the University of Pennsylvania, and finally to Rutgers, where...
How gravity actually works
By: Irrira Rikki
GALACTIC SCALES Remember the old trick of filling the bucket with water, then turning it quickly in a circle up and over our head, while the water did not spill? This is how gravity works. The gravitational effect of us spinning the bucket quicker...
Thoughts on the oscillator/substance model

Title: BAEconstant//Planck-Einstein Constant Revised *Respectfully submitted to Dean L. Sinclair & Oscillator-Substance Theory Group** Planck's Constant Revised ** * * Postulated necessary Planck revisions per extending fixed-definition-status to the value of 'E'-energy relative to Planck's-Constant's values for all subsequent international quantum-mechanics calculations hense forth*...
