Scientists capture antimatter atoms in particle breakthrough
By: D. Vogt
In November 2010, the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced yet another breakthrough: the capture of a number of antihydrogen atoms (a form of antimatter) for the first time. Antimatter is a form of antiparticle theorized to exist by modern particle physics. When matter...

Think for a minute about time. Some of the questions that come to mind may be questions like what is it or does it even exist and, is there a way to prove that time does not exist? People have searched for the answers of...
Isaac Newton's Three Laws of Motion
By: Eric Mattson
Issac Newton made three laws of motion that every particle in this universe obeys. The laws are: First Law: "An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. An object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon...

Who hasn't wanted to be able to time-travel? I'd love to go back to when I was a teenager and tell that poor kid not to worry so much, that ALL teenagers are miserable. I'd love to go back and see for myself whether God...
Nuclear reactors: How the CANDU is different from other reactors
By: Roberta Velyn
Modern science has developed several different types of nuclear reactors to produce electrical power. Most of these produce energy when a critical mass of highly radioactive enriched uranium is accumulated. Within the reaction chamber nuclear particles fly about, striking each other to break apart the...
Nanotechnology: The science of the small
By: Gregg Henglein
How deep a root can something one one-hundredth the width of a human hair possibly forge? You would be surprised, for biologists, chemists, physicists and engineers are all involved in the study of substances at this minute scale. How so?The discipline is nanotechnology, and...
Theoretical X-particle explains both antimatter and dark matter
By: Terrence Aym
Scientists have found a new 'Holy Grail' to hunt: the X Particle.The hypothetical bit of matter may simultaneously solve two enigma-plagued conundrums: the stuff making up dark matter, and the antimatter puzzle. The antimatter dilemmaFrom the day that the existence of antimatter was first...
Theoretical X-particle explains both antimatter and dark matter
By: A.W. Berry
In the world of physics, the existence of a theoretical X-particle may explain why anything in the universe exists at all including antimatter and dark matter. None of these things can be seen with human eyes, and only some of it, such as anti-helium, may...
Quantum entanglement in relation to computers
By: Samuel Lamphier
The Josephson Effect and Josephson Junction The British physicist Brian David Josephson postulated the existence of a current which could traverse two superconductors separated by an insulator of miniscule dimensions in 1962. His prediction has allowed the development of quantum mechanical devices such as the...

According to some, nanotechnology holds the promise of a future heaven on Earth: all Man's needs will be met and an idyllic paradise will ensue driven by wondrous machines the size of molecules.Others predict a hell of unprecedented proportions.Like all predictions, the truth...
