Gods and Goddesses [Gods and Aliens] When you study the mythologies of ancient civilizations, you realize they are all designed by the same geometric blueprint that follows into humanity's current timeline. In the physical we find duality on all levels, especially in the pantheons of creational forces linked to one another. We further find the pattern of creation and destruction ... repeating in the cycles of time ... embracing the human experience. Designing the gods and goddesses falls into the same categories of duality - good and bad - light and dark - forever seeking balance and the return to full consciousness. The study of Ancient Alien Theory allows one to understand that creator gods more than likely were aliens who created the race presently called humans, in its various forms, by biogenetic experimentation and manipulation. Always we find Gods who came from the sky (higher frequency) and those that came from the sea of creation (collective unconsciousness).

Quantum Computers Animated Is Earth Surrounded by Dark Matter? Dark mater: The stuff that possesses mass, yet refuses to interact with radiation, so we can't 'see' it. Its nature has eluded scientists for decades, but there could be a reservoir of the stuff sitting right on our doorstep — if the weird measurements made by Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites are proven to be caused by a halo of the so-called non-baryonic matter around our planet. PHOTOS: Hubble’s Latest Mind Blowing Cosmic Pictures During a presentation at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) conference in San Francisco in December, GPS expert Ben Harris (of the University of Texas at Arlington) described some tricky measurements of the Earth’s mass using the armada of GPS satellites that are in orbit around our planet. He noticed a mass discrepancy when compared with “official” mass measurements as quoted by the International Astronomical Union (IAU). “The nice thing about GPS satellites is that we know their orbits really, really well,” said Harris. What does this mean?

Modèle standard (physique des particules) Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Modèle standard sous forme de tableau. Le modèle standard de la physique des particules est une théorie scientifique qui décrit les interactions entre les particules élémentaires qui constituent la matière. Elle permet de décrire avec une précision extrême tous les phénomènes corpusculaires comme les désintégrations nucléaires et elle n'a jamais été prise en défaut. Cependant, elle n'inclut pas la description de la gravitation. Développé du milieu à la fin du vingtième siècle, le modèle standard a avancé par les découvertes aussi bien expérimentales que théoriques. Le modèle standard possède 19 paramètres libres pour décrire les masses des trois leptons , des six quarks, du boson de Higgs et 8 constantes pour décrire les différents couplages entre particules. Pour les théoriciens, le modèle standard est un paradigme de la théorie quantique des champs, qui met en œuvre un large spectre de phénomènes physiques.

Love American Skin | Photography Last week German photographer and filmmaker Diana Scheunemann unveiled her probing debut film, Love American Skin, a road trip across America that documented the many contrasting characters and viewpoints that make up one of the biggest nation’s in the world. Compelling watching, the film throws up opinions that may ruffle a few feathers but adds to our understanding of the vastness of the country, and the differences that one encounters from state to state. We catch up with Diana to talk through her experiences of making the film. Me and my partner had been living in NYC for a few years. You hear all these partisan views on the TV but we wanted to see for ourselves what this country we now live in is like, and form an opinion based on our own experience instead of from Hollywood movies and charged news commentators. We found nearly all of the Americans we met to be really open. There are some states where you can be shot just for stepping on someone’s property. That people are people.

What Is the Higgs? - Interactive Graphic Imagine never having seen a snowflake. Now prove one exists by probing the slush and mist of melting snow. You can’t see a Higgs boson, and no sensor can pick one out from the Higgs field that it forms. For 50 years, physicists have been building larger and more powerful accelerators to vaporize particles and sift through the debris. In the tunnels at CERN, protons are sped along a track to within a breath of the speed of light, then smashed together in a violent explosion. The protons annihilate each other, releasing a burst of energy. But Einstein tells us that mass is energy, and physics tells us that energy can’t be destroyed. An array of new particles pours from the fireball, energy spun back into tiny specks of mass. A machine surrounds and tracks the debris, bending charged particles as they plow through layers of sensors. Repeat this a million times, then tens of millions, before a second has passed. And keep going because you’re looking for something very rare. Once every few billion impacts,

What It’s Like to Live in a Universe of Ten Dimensions by Maria Popova What songwriting has to do with string theory. What would happen if you crossed the physics of time with the science of something and nothing? You might get closer to understanding the multiverse. In Imagining the Tenth Dimension: A New Way of Thinking About Time and Space, Rob Bryanton — a self-described “non-scientist with an inquisitive mind,” whose dayjob as a sound designer involves composing music for TV series and films — proposes a theory of the universe based on ten dimensions, a bold and progressive lens on string theory based on the idea that countless tiny “superstrings” are vibrating in a tenth dimension. For a taste, here is a mind-bending explanation of ten dimensions might mean: The project began as a set of 26 songs, exploring the intersection of science and philosophy. Before launching into the additional dimensions, Bryanton also breaks down the familiar three: HT It’s Okay To Be Smart Donating = Loving Brain Pickings has a free weekly newsletter.

Soliton Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Un soliton est une onde solitaire qui se propage sans se déformer dans un milieu non linéaire et dispersif. On en trouve dans de nombreux phénomènes physiques de même qu'ils sont la solution de nombreuses équations aux dérivées partielles non linéaires. Historique[modifier | modifier le code] Les solitons hydrodynamiques[modifier | modifier le code] Soliton hydrodynamique. Ce mode de propagation d'une vague sur de longues distances explique aussi la propagation des tsunami (ou raz-de-marée). Les solitons optiques[modifier | modifier le code] Évolution spatio-temporelle d'un soliton optique fondamental qui se propage sans se déformer. L'utilisation de solitons a été proposée pour améliorer la performance des transmissions dans les réseaux optiques de télécommunications en 1973 par Akira Hasegawa du laboratoire Bell d'AT&T[3].

Un Certain Regard Un Certain Regard (French pronunciation: ​[œ̃ sɛʁtɛ̃ ʁəɡaʁ]; a certain regard) is a section of the Cannes Film Festival's official selection. It is run at the salle Debussy, parallel to the competition for the Palme d'Or. This section was introduced in 1978 by Gilles Jacob. Each year, it presents a score of films with various types of visions and styles; "original and different" works which seek international recognition. §Main Winners[edit] In 1998, the Prize Un Certain Regard (French: prix un certain regard) was introduced to the section to recognize young talent and to encourage innovative and daring works by presenting one of the films with a grant to aid its distribution in France.[1] Since 2005, the prize consists of €30,000 financed by the Groupama GAN Foundation.[2] * Denotes first win for a country §Complete List of Winners[edit] §References[edit]

Where Was The Big Bang? Alice in Quantumland: A Charming Illustrated Allegory of Quantum Mechanics by a CERN Physicist by Maria Popova Down the rabbit hole of antimatter, or how to believe six impossible things about gender stereotypes before breakfast. As a lover of science and of all things Alice in Wonderland, imagine my delight at discovering Alice in Quantumland: An Allegory of Quantum Physics (public library) — an imaginative and unusual 1995 quantum primer by particle physicist Robert Gilmore, who has under his belt experience at Stanford and CERN. Besides the clever concept, two things make the book especially remarkable: It flies in the face of gender stereotypes with a female protagonist who sets out to make sense of some of the most intense science of all time, and it features Gilmore’s own magnificent illustrations for a perfect intersection of art and science, true to recent research indicating that history’s most successful scientists also dabbled in the arts. Gilmore writes in the preface: In the first half of the twentieth century, our understanding in the Universe was turned upside down.

Histoire de l’Univers – Partie 4 : Le Modèle standard de la physique | Blog de Zevengeur Une particule élémentaire non observable directement (elle ressemble peut être à cela !) Le premier article [1] de cette série a présenté une ébauche du début de l’histoire de l’univers telle que la cosmologie moderne la conçoit. Pour comprendre cette histoire, il est apparu nécessaire d’aborder le domaine de la physique des particules. En effet, à ses instants initiaux, l’univers était constitué de particules dites « de base » à très haute énergie. Le second article [2] a donc introduit les principaux concepts permettant de comprendre le Modèle standard qui va être présenté ici. Le Modèle Standard est un modèle ouvert car il peut évoluer en fonction d’éventuelles observations nouvelles. La matière ordinaire est constituée d’un assemblage d’atomes juxtaposés. (*) Non constituées de particules plus petites. Fig. 1 : Les plus petits constituants connus de la matière Les particules de base qui constituent la matière sont appelées « fermions ». Il ne possède ni masse ni charge électrique.
