- Schrödinger's Cat Comes into View with Strange Physics
By sending green, red and yellow laser beams down a path to detector, researchers have shed light on the famous physics idea known as the "Schrödinger's cat" thought experiment. Over any given period there's a 50-50 chance the poison vial will open, and a person who opens the box after a given time and looks at the cat will then observe that it is either dead or alive.
- Two Common Misconceptions About Learning
It’s another semester with a new group of students. This semester, I have a class of elementary education majors (using Physics and Everyday Thinking). In the course, students build basic physics ideas after collecting data from particular experiments. Overall, this is an awesome course. It seems that most of the students gain a greater understanding […]
- Civilization: Beyond Earth and the Physics of Space Travel
Kevin explores the worlds of video games and astrophysics to discover what one discipline might learn from the other.
- On the search for 'new physics'
( Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz ) The participants will be focusing on subjects such as the physics of the Higgs particle, the search for 'new physics,' and the corresponding unifying theory that will greatly expand our understanding of elementary particles and fundamental forces.
- Scientists get set for simulated nuclear inspection
( Institute of Physics ) Some 40 scientists and technicians from around the world will descend on Jordan in November to take part in a simulated on-site inspection of a suspected nuclear test site on the banks of the Dead Sea.
- Sunday Conversation: Alan M. Nathan
Staff writer Tim Mitchell sat down with Alan M. Nathan, professor emeritus of physics at the University of Illinois. Nathan has worked for the Cardinals, Red Sox and Nationals. Were you always interested in physics when you were a kid? read more
- Physics' best-known lectures are now available to everyone on the web
Ask professors about important physics lectures, and they'll probably point you toward Richard Feynman's famous 1964 talks. They led to one of the most popular physics books ever (over 1.5 million English copies sold) and helped generations...
- "Spooky" Quantum Entanglement Reveals Invisible Objects
In a physics first, quantum entanglement of two-colored laser beams created pictures of otherwise unseeable objects, experimenters report.
