A lune is a plane figure bounded by two circular arcs of unequal radii, i.e., a crescent.

(By contrast, a plane figure bounded by two circular arcs of equal radius is known as a lens.) For circles of radius and whose centers are separated by a distance , the area of the lune is given by where is the area of the triangle with side lengths. Biochem4schools: Search by topic.

First of all, let me say that this is not a comment on the overall article, but a small portion of it included below.

Have we found the universe that existed before the Big Bang?

I stopped reading at the line "it's not clear whether one can even use the term "before" in reference to a pre-Big-Bang cosmos, as time itself may not have existed yet" Quantum Physics: David Bohm. Bohmian Wave Mechanics, Holographic Universe, Bohm Biography. Introductory Quotes to David Bohm's Holographic Universe It is proposed that the widespread and pervasive distinctions between people (race, nation, family, profession, etc., etc.) which are now preventing mankind from working together for the common good, and indeed, even for survival, have one of the key factors of their origin in a kind of thought that treats things as inherently divided, disconnected, and "broken up" into yet smaller constituent parts.

Quantum Physics: David Bohm. Bohmian Wave Mechanics, Holographic Universe, Bohm Biography

Each part is considered to be essentially independent and self-existent. (David Bohm, Wholeness and the Implicate Order) The notion that all these fragments is separately existent is evidently an illusion, and this illusion cannot do other than lead to endless conflict and confusion. Indeed, the attempt to live according to the notion that the fragments are really separate is, in essence, what has led to the growing series of extremely urgent crises that is confronting us today.

A Very Brief Introduction. Robert Lanza, M.D.: Does the Past Exist Yet? Evidence Suggests Your Past Isn't Set in Stone. Recent discoveries require us to rethink our understanding of history.

Robert Lanza, M.D.: Does the Past Exist Yet? Evidence Suggests Your Past Isn't Set in Stone

"The histories of the universe," said renowned physicist Stephen Hawking "depend on what is being measured, contrary to the usual idea that the universe has an objective observer-independent history.

Here are some of our favorite clips from the life sciences. 10. Immune Cell Chasing a BacteriumIt may look like the predecessor to Pac Man, but this vintage clip shows a neutrophil wending its way through a crowd of red blood cells to destroy its bacterial nemesis. 9.

Scientists have figured out how stress experienced early in life can cause long-lasting changes in physiology and behavior -- via epigenetics.

Early stress alters epigenome

Image: Max-Planck Institute of Psychiatry, MunichSpecifically, early stress appears to induce epigenetic changes in a specific regulatory region of the genome, affecting the expression of a hormone important in controlling mood and cognition into adulthood, according to a study published online today (November 8) in Nature Neuroscience. This is the fi Scientists have figured out how stress experienced early in life can cause long-lasting changes in physiology and behavior -- via epigenetics.

Everywhere in a Flash: The Quantum Physics of Photosynthesis. By hitting single molecules with quadrillionth-of-a-second laser pulses, scientists have revealed the quantum physics underlying photosynthesis, the process used by plants and bacteria to capture light’s energy at efficiencies unapproached by human engineers.

Everywhere in a Flash: The Quantum Physics of Photosynthesis

The quantum wizardry appears to occur in each of a photosynthetic cell’s millions of antenna proteins. These route energy from electrons spinning in photon-sensitive molecules to nearby reaction-center proteins, which convert it to cell-driving charges. Almost no energy is lost in between.
