Special Relativity These pages are ok as far as they go, but they are missing the planned highlight, to show you what things actually look like when you travel at near the speed of light. I hope to have the opportunity to develop these pages further as time permits. Here is my opinionated Guide to Special Relativistic Flight Simulator Sites. Fermilab.

Description Overview of modern scientific cosmology, including discussion of stars, the Milky Way galaxy, black holes, dark matter, the big bang, and evidence for our current understanding of the universe.
Customer Reviews Great content, but audio is seriously lacking by AngryFanOfBirds Great content and the professor is very good at giving real-world analogies which are easy to comprehend. ...More amazing by RRO3 This man is amazing. Fantastic… But need a mic by VernontheIII This is a wonderful podcast. Phun - 2D physics sandbox - Home. We come from the future. Home Page. This mission will employ an advanced rover and landing technologies on Mars.
The Juno spacecraft will, for the first time, see below Jupiter's dense clouds. Voyager 1 and 2 took advantage of a rare planetary alignment to conduct a historic tour of the outer solar system and build enough velocity to... Cassini has been unlocking the secrets of Saturn, its ringsand moons since 2004. New Horizons is the first mission to explore Pluto and the Kuiper Belt. Motion Mountain - The Free Physics Textbook for Dowload. The Large Hadron Collider. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator.
It first started up on 10 September 2008, and remains the latest addition to CERN’s accelerator complex. The LHC consists of a 27-kilometre ring of superconducting magnets with a number of accelerating structures to boost the energy of the particles along the way. Inside the accelerator, two high-energy particle beams travel at close to the speed of light before they are made to collide. The beams travel in opposite directions in separate beam pipes – two tubes kept at ultrahigh vacuum. They are guided around the accelerator ring by a strong magnetic field maintained by superconducting electromagnets. Online physics-based games. Physics Solver - Blue Solver. CERN.

January 1, 2015. Preface For over a decade I have taught an introductory, undergraduate class, "Einstein for Everyone," at the University of Pittsburgh to anyone interested enough to walk through door. With each new offering of the course, I had the chance to find out what content worked and which of my ever so clever pedagogical inventions were failures. At the same time, my lecture notes have evolved. This text owes a lot to many.
I i i. 10 Strange Things About The Universe. Space The universe can be a very strange place.
While groundbreaking ideas such as quantum theory, relativity and even the Earth going around the Sun might be commonly accepted now, science still continues to show that the universe contains things you might find it difficult to believe, and even more difficult to get your head around. Theoretically, the lowest temperature that can be achieved is absolute zero, exactly ? 273.15°C, where the motion of all particles stops completely. However, you can never actually cool something to this temperature because, in quantum mechanics, every particle has a minimum energy, called “zero-point energy,” which you cannot get below. One of the properties of a negative-energy vacuum is that light actually travels faster in it than it does in a normal vacuum, something that may one day allow people to travel faster than the speed of light in a kind of negative-energy vacuum bubble.
