507 Mechanical Movements. LHC - Collider. Copernicus -vs- The Science Of THOR! I never would have guessed there would be so much science (and astronomy in particular) in THOR. And I was further astonished to find out that I know two of the science advisers on the film. Not only, that, but they had a great experience and were actually listened to and helped improve the film. So this week, in addition to my usual shameless self-promotion of my TV show, KNOWN UNIVERSE, I thought I’d tackle the Science of Thor! As a comic book, Thor exists in the realm of imagination and legend. But a direct translation of the full operatic, color-saturated glory of the comic page to film often goes off the rails, because while in comics the reader is helping with his or her imagination, movies are a medium much closer to the real world. Realizing this, Marvel and president of film production Kevin Feige, have eased audiences into their universe one “buy-in” at a time.

In preparation for this article, I talked to the two of them I already knew: Sean Carroll and Jim Hartle. The Slow Mo Guys. Geek Central - Home. Sixty Symbols. MinutePhysics. FavScientist's channel.

What do you get when you add a chemical engineer, a graphic designer and a research scientist? Beautiful art. In a wondrous combination of nature and design, bioluminescent art involves using naturally glowing bacteria to create intricate and deliberate formations only visible when the lights are out. These three came together to create "BIOGLYPHS," a collaborative gallery at Montana State University-Bozeman. Photo: Rob Wilke/2002, MSU-Bozeman Bioglyphs Project Betsey Pitts, a director of the project and research scientist at the Center for Biofilm Engineering, said the BIOGLYPHS project involved "some microbiology training, imagination, and a lot of petri dishes. " This kind of art doesn't use paint or paper. "This was all done in an afternoon, and the organisms were grown up and glowing in the dark by the next morning, when the show opened," said Pitts.

Homemade science kits are fantastic, inexpensive holiday or birthday gifts. In addition, they’re great places to store loose science items you might already have around the house, like magnets or magnifying glasses.

I’ll list how much some of the ingredients/stuff cost me at Target. In a single shopping trip, it’s easy to fill a plastic bin with enough supplies to do a number of science experiments (with a few last-minute additions from around the kitchen, like dish soap and milk.) The other morning, I talked about making your own science kit on Kare11 Sunrise. I’ll list some “ingredients” for science kits and link directly to the experiments in blue (just click on the experiment name.) Safety goggles, petri dishes,magnets, plastic test tubes, eyedroppers, magnifying glasses, plastic beakers and graduated cylinders are great additions to any kit! Here’s what we put in our kit: Dozens of fun ways to teach about the Periodic Table of Elements - Mankato Homeschooling. One of the great things about homeschooling today is that there are so many creative ways to teach. The days are long past when we could only use dry books and posters to teach about the Periodic Table of Elements.

Here's some great ways to teach them. The Periodic Table: Elements with Style! This Basher book is as good as the rest in the fun book series. Each element is an anime-style character that talks about itself and what makes it special. Strontium says, " I'm Scottish, named after the town of Strontian where I was discovered. You may see me as a shy, run-of-the-mill, silver-colored metal, but I've got a few surprises up my sleeve... " The Periodic Table Game This fun game is a free download from the fabulous Ellen McHenry's Basement Workshop: The game board is, of course, a giant Periodic Table. Ellen McHenry also offers these related free downloads: Printable Online PTOE Posters The Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry has a periodic table poster online.

DAVID POGUE: We live in a world of incredible material variety. Yet everything we know, the stars, the planets and life, itself, comes from about 90 basic building blocks,… You have a periodic table table.

…all right here, on this remarkable chart: the periodic table of the elements. It's a story that begins with the Big Bang and eventually leads to us. Manganese! And we're made, almost entirely, of just a handful of ingredients, including one that burns with secret fire inside us all. Join me as I explore the basic building blocks of the universe… Oh!

LINDSAY BAKER (Gatorade Sports Science Institute): …as hard as you can. …poisonous gases,… Isn't chlorine deadly? Amazing Rust.com - Hot Ice. Hot Ice The picture to the left depicts pillars of Sodium Acetate Trihydrate which were created using Hot Ice solution. Supersaturated solutions of Sodium Acetate are used in certain types of hand-warmers. When a metallic button is pressed inside a plastic pouch, the supersaturated solution begins to crystallize, in the process releasing heat. Sodium Acetate is one of the products of the reaction between baking soda (Sodium Bicarbonate, NaHCO3) and vinegar (Acetic acid, HC2H3O2). The video below shows the Hot Ice phenomenon in action. In the video, a supersaturated solution of Sodium Acetate is carefully poured into an empty Petri dish and a small Sodium Acetate seed-crystal is dropped into the liquid.

The seed-crystal triggers the “freezing” of the supersaturated solution and the liquid begins to crystallize. Making Hot Ice In order to make Hot Ice, one must first create a supersaturated solution of Sodium Acetate. Videos What is happening?
