If you need some physics to get you through the Super Bowl, here are three of my favorite aspects of the game. The post How to Understand the Super Bowl—With Physics! appeared first on WIRED .
- As Super Bowl nears, MIT physics prof. analyzes DeflateGate
To paraphrase the 80’s singer Thomas Dolby, Patriots coach Bill Belichick didn't exactly blind anyone with his science skills.

- Zigzag Physics: Loophole Makes Light Particles Act Drunk
A universal rule of thumb may need to be rewritten: Light moving freely through empty space does not necessarily travel at the speed of light. As physicists have come to know, light particles traveling through empty space should zip along at exactly 186,282 miles per second (299,792 kilometers per second).
- Laser's co-inventor, Nobel laureate Charles Townes, dead at 99
Charles Townes, who shared the 1964 Nobel Prize in Physics for invention of the laser, a feat that revolutionized science, medicine, telecommunications and entertainment, has died at age 99, the University of California at Berkeley reported. A professor emeritus at Berkeley, he was a member of the university's physics department and Space Sciences Laboratory for nearly five decades.
- Football Physics: Why Deflated Balls Are Easier to Catch
After an inspection revealed that some of the footballs used during Sunday's NFL playoff game were slightly deflated, many people are asking whether the balls gave the New England Patriots an unfair advantage over the Indianapolis Colts. Last Sunday (Jan. 18), the Patriots landed a spot at the Super Bowl after beating the Colts 45 to 7. A ball that is less inflated is easier to deform and grip ...

- Quantum Experiment Helps Prove Einstein's Theory of Relativity
Building a quantum computer can sometimes yield unexpected benefits — like providing the right environment to demonstrate that Albert Einstein's theory of special relativity is, in fact, correct. The experiment used partially entangled atoms that were a byproduct of an attempt to build quantum computers. Special relativity is a cornerstone of modern physics, and was formulated by Einstein in ...
- NFL investigators reach out to Columbia physics department
The NFL team investigating why 11 of 12 footballs used by the New England Patriots in their AFC Championship Game win were underinflated has asked the physics department at Columbia University for help, according to The New York Times.
