  • Conceptual Physics Halloween Costumes 2014 [Uncertain Principles]
    A fine if somewhat intermittent tradition hereabouts has been the offering of high-concept Halloween costumes for people interested in physics, surfacing in 2010, 2012, and 2013. I’m a little too fried right now to do anything all that deep, but I’ll try to offer a few suggestions; see also these particle-physics suggestions from Symmetry magazine,…
  • Health: Professor tackles physics with football
    NIU assistant professor Michael Eads' Tuesday night talk, titled “Even More Physics of Football,” was part of Northern Illinois University’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Café program.
  • The Physics of the Hendo Hoverboard
    This hoverboard looks like the real deal – unlike the recent fake hoverboard.  Although I’m not exactly sure how the Hendo Hoverboard works, I have a pretty good guess. Let’s look at electromagnetic repulsion physics that it might use. If you read the description on the kickstarter page, it says: “The magic behind the hoverboard […] The post The Physics of the Hendo Hoverboard appeared first on ...

  • Spooky Quantum Physics Demonstration Tonight: How to Watch Live
    Dive headlong into the weird world of quantum mechanics tonight (Oct. 1) with Harvard physics professor Subir Sachdev who will explain the link between the strange phenomena of spooky quantum entanglement and the wonder of weightless levitation made possible by superconductors. You can watch a live webcast on Live Science of Sachdev's presentation at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical ...
  • Nobel Prize for physics: How LEDs change the world.
    The Nobel Prize for physics was awarded Tuesday to the inventors of blue light-emitting diodes (LEDs). The Nobel-winners' creation is already transforming everyday devices in the developed world, and are bringing cheaper, better light to those who don't have it.
