Featured - Huge step for commercial space!

SpaceX has had an incredible mission. They completed the preliminary maneuvers near the ISS, and were cleared to go ahead and get close enough to the station for the robotic arm to be able to grab hold of it.

Never know with that Florida weather. Regardless of the date, there is only one mission left in the old bird. After which, NASA will recall it's vehicles, and the shuttle will be...

Featured - Athene's 'Theory of Everything' - A new take on neuroscience in relation to quantum physics

Earlier this week I was fortunate enough to speak with Chiren Boumaaza, aka Athene, who you may know as the extravagant internet celebrity, and professional gamer.If you haven't heard of him, he's a record holder in World of Warcraft and online poker, and plays the main character in a series of videos on a popular youtube channel with well over 340,000...

Featured - Gravitational Waves and LISA

Back in the early 1900's, one of the many cool things Einstein found through his theory of General Relativity, was the theoretical existence of these things called Gravitational Waves. As their name suggests they are predicted to be ripples, or fluctuations in the curvature of Space-Time, that propagate the way waves would, emanating from a source such...

Featured - Cloaking and invisibility - Very cool new concept

Last week we heard that researchers from Imperial college London, have published a study dealing with newly engineered metamaterials. These materials allow for light hitting them to be sped up or slowed down. Doing this, creates a zone with effectively no light, rendering that zone, and everything in it, hidden from sight, or invisible. The press release...

Featured - The Lagrange points – Nature’s parking spots

Physics is cool. It turns out that in the big bad dark vastness of the ever expanding, contracting, and moving universe, you can find certain spots that are always at rest. Well I mean that’s all relative. They’re at rest relative to more massive bodies orbiting in their vicinity.Say you’ve got your Sun and you’ve got your Earth, and you’re a much much...

You may be asking yourself what is this space junk I speak of, and why am I bothering you with this.. Well, I am glad you asked!Space Junk is pretty much anything that is left over, discarded, or no longer functioning, that happens to orbit our little globe here. It can be debris from a space collision, left over parts from rockets, satellites, launch...

Evie's Sci Blog - Your help can last a lifetime. Contribute, if you can, to DonorsChoose. Every dollar counts!!

DonorsChoose.org is a great idea. It allows anyone and everyone to help out with as little or as much as they choose.Basically school teachers in the US who find themselves in need, make a request, explaining exactly what they are missing from their classroom. They tell you what it is they need that would be of tremendous help, they explain what they...

This is very exciting! Of course this does not mean they found life on the planet, or that they even have a way to do so, 'cause they don't at the moment. But...
