Why there is no such thing as empty space

In a previous video, we argued that typical notions of 'something' and 'nothing' don't really make sense according to modern physics. But many commenters objected to this idea, calling it a semantic game. Surely there must be such a thing as a true void: no matter, no energy, no distance... just pure nothingness. In our latest animated explainer, we pick up where we left off and look at whether true nothingness is possible according to physics. You can find out more about the void in our full-length feature: Nothingness: The turbulent life of empty space. For more mind-bending physics, check out this explainer on how to build a time machine, or visit our archive of One-Minute Physics videos.

Culture Vaults : Resonant Frequencies and the Human Brain. One of the great revelations of 20th century science is that all existence can be broken down into simple wave functions.

Culture Vaults : Resonant Frequencies and the Human Brain

Every photon, energy emission, and elementary particle rings with its own unique wave signature. When we see a color, we are actually seeing a distinct frequency of visible light. When we hear a sound, our eardrums are actually being vibrated by subtle waves in the air molecules around us. Even the neurochemical processes of human consciousness ­ our very thoughts ­ ring with their own distinct wave patterns. By studying the way that waves interact with other waves, researchers have found that even low-powered oscillations can have enormous effects on standing waves, physical structures, and even the human brain. Tesla first realized the massive potential of resonant waves in 1898 when he performed a simple experiment with an electromechanical oscillator the size of an alarm clock.

Engineering. ‪Chaîne de FlowScience‬‏ FLOW-3D has many applications for the hydraulics industry, including modeling fish passages, dam breaks, spillways, avalanches, hydroelectric power and other water and environmental engineering challenges.Users can increase the capacity of existing infrastructure in hydropower plants, develop novel approaches to fish passages, design intakes that minimize head loss, develop improved forebay designs and tailrace flows, analyze scour and deposition and evaluate air entrainment.
