Each year since, Sense About Science has reviewed the odd science claims people in the public eye have made - about diets, cancer, magnets, radiation and more - sent in to us by scientists and members of the public. Many of these claims promote theories, therapies and campaigns that make no scientific sense. We ask scientists to respond, to help the celebrities realise where they are going wrong and to help the public to make sense of celebrity claims. “We seem to be seeing a celebrity divide on science. The implausible and frankly dangerous claims about how to avoid cancer, improve skin or lose weight are becoming ever more ridiculous. Tracey Brown, Managing Director, Sense About Science

Foundational Questions Institute The Foundational Questions Institute (FQXi) To catalyze, support, and disseminate research on questions at the foundations of physics and cosmology, particularly new frontiers and innovative ideas integral to a deep understanding of reality but unlikely to be supported by conventional funding sources. FQXi has five goals: {*style:<ul style="padding-left:20px;"><li> To expand the purview of scientific inquiry to include scientific disciplines fundamental to a deep understanding of reality, but which are currently largely unsupported by conventional grant sources To redress incrementalism in research programming by establishing or expanding new "islands" of understanding via flexible funding of high-risk, high-reward research in these areas To forge and maintain useful collaborations between researchers working on foundational questions in physics, cosmology, and related fields FQXi welcomes the participation of scientists, laypeople, and philanthropists.

Sulfur Haunts the Ghost Wreck [March 4, 2014] Sulfur and iron accumulation has once again been found in wood samples from old shipwrecks in the Baltic Sea. This time the samples are from the merchant vessel Ghost wreck and the warships Sword and the Crown.

Top Sites That Make Science Awesome posted by Elizabeth Harper on April 24, 2013 in Internet & Networking, Computers and Software, Family and Parenting, Kids, Guides & Reviews, Fab Websites :: 0 comments Though you may remember science class as dull, much has changed. The Internet has done the impossible and made science a lot more accessible, bringing scientists and science enthusiasts together to share and discuss the most interesting discoveries of the day. Online, you can find fascinating science news and explanations on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and more if you know where to look—and it's all a lot more interesting than any high school science textbook. Exploring space from you desktop NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day (APoD) Just like the title says, this NASA site provides a high-resolution space photo every day with a description written by a professional astronomer. If you like what you see, there's an archive going back to 1995 full of wondrous images. StarTalk Radio Spot the Station The best of science video

Deep Solar Minimum + Play Audio | + Download Audio | + Join mailing list April 1, 2009: The sunspot cycle is behaving a little like the stock market. Just when you think it has hit bottom, it goes even lower. 2008 was a bear. Maybe not. It adds up to one inescapable conclusion: "We're experiencing a very deep solar minimum," says solar physicist Dean Pesnell of the Goddard Space Flight Center. "This is the quietest sun we've seen in almost a century," agrees sunspot expert David Hathaway of the Marshall Space Flight Center. Above: The sunspot cycle from 1995 to the present. Quiet suns come along every 11 years or so. The current solar minimum is part of that pattern. But is it supposed to be this quiet? A 50-year low in solar wind pressure: Measurements by the Ulysses spacecraft reveal a 20% drop in solar wind pressure since the mid-1990s—the lowest point since such measurements began in the 1960s. Above: Space-age measurements of the total solar irradiance (brightness summed across all wavelengths).

Techdirt. ScienceBlogs - Where the world turns to talk about science. Fermilab | Newsroom | Press Releases | August 26, 2014: Do we live in a 2-D hologram? Press Release August 26, 2014 Do we live in a 2-D hologram? New Fermilab experiment will test the nature of the universe A unique experiment at the U.S. Much like characters on a television show would not know that their seemingly 3-D world exists only on a 2-D screen, we could be clueless that our 3-D space is just an illusion. Get close enough to your TV screen and you’ll see pixels, small points of data that make a seamless image if you stand back. “We want to find out whether space-time is a quantum system just like matter is,” said Craig Hogan, director of Fermilab’s Center for Particle Astrophysics and the developer of the holographic noise theory. Quantum theory suggests that it is impossible to know both the exact location and the exact speed of subatomic particles. Essentially, the experiment probes the limits of the universe’s ability to store information. Now operating at full power, the Holometer uses a pair of interferometers placed close to one another.

Physical Review X Does Research on Foundations of Quantum Mechanics Fit into PRX’s Scope? October 24, 2014 The editors and Bill Poirier from Texas Tech University spotlight an original, thought-provoking paper by Hall, Deckert, and Wiseman on foundations of quantum mechanics, Phys. Rev. X, 4, 041013 (2014). PRX Takes on a New Role October 9, 2014 APS Editor in Chief Gene Sprouse discusses the new role of Physical Review X as APS's highly selective and broadly accessible journal, that publishes a small number of key papers from all areas of physics in APS's nonprofit, science-first publishing tradition.
