- Galileo Got Game: 5 Things You Didn’t Know About The Physics of Basketball
In a way, a game like basketball is a physics geek’s delight. It’s a playground where you can apply physics principles to try and get some added insight to the game. You’ve got the interplay of projectile motion and collisions, energy and momentum, and so on. To get you started, here’s a list of five neat pieces […]
- Physics Teacher, Telford and Wrekin
This 11-18 City Technology College with an enrolment of 1300 students was named, for the fourth time, in Her Majesty's Chief Inspector's Annual Report for its outstanding Ofsted Inspection Report and excellent examination results.
- Economics = MC2 -- A Portrait of the Modern Physics Startup
In recent decades, many large high-tech companies have eliminated in-house research programs, turning instead to startup companies as their primary source of breakthrough innovations. AIP has released a new report on physics startups, based on interviews with 140 physicists and other professionals at some 91 startup companies in 14 states, companies which are engaged in making medical devices ...
- Students pour into Coors Field for record-breaking science lesson
Coors Field became a gigantic open-air classroom Wednesday as thousands of kids got a lesson in physics and Colorado State University set a record for the world's largest physics class.
- Superconducting qubit array points the way to quantum computers
A fully functional quantum computer is one of the holy grails of physics. Physicists have moved one step closer to making a quantum computer a reality by demonstrating a new level of reliability in a five-qubit array. Quantum computing is anything but simple. It relies on aspects of quantum mechanics such as superposition. This notion holds that any physical object, such as an atom or electron ...
- Real-life Street Fighter Hadouken fireball would require 93mph dodgeball throw
A research paper in the Journal of Physics Special Topics has taught us two things: that physics students have far too much time on their hands, and that we need someone capable of […]
