Particle accelerators’ search for nature’s hidden dimensions comes up empty It sounds like something that should be reported at the Onion, but here I am to tell you that the people who run the CMS detector at the LHC have just released their most recent results. Apparently, if there are extra dimensions, they haven't been hiding anywhere the LHC can find them. To add to the misery of extra dimension hunters, the data from Fermilab's D0 collaboration has also been used to not find extra dimensions.

Chemistry Chemistry Multimedia This web site contains a downloadable collection of quicktime movies of chemical animations such as catalytic reactions and 3-D molecules. These are good resources for chemistry teachers to use in their classrooms to facilitate the learning of chemical processes including bond formations and chemical structures. Molecule of the Month This web site highlights the complete chemistry of a different molecule each month. An archive of past month's molecules is included. The resources include 3-D molecular images, animations and graphics that can be used by chemistry teachers to explain different physical and chemical properties of molecules. The Catalyst-Chemistry Resources For The Secondary Education Teacher on the WWW This site contains a variety of annotated web sites specifically for secondary chemistry teachers.

Its reddish color comes from the high amounts of iron oxide on its surface. Mars has surface features similar to those found on the moon and on Earth. It has mountain ranges, volcanic fields, valleys, ice caps, canyons and deserts. It has numerous impact craters including one, discovered in 2008, that measures more than 6,000 miles in length and nearly 5,000 miles in width.

Physics Flash Animations We have been increasingly using Flash animations for illustrating Physics content. This page provides access to those animations which may be of general interest. The animations will appear in a separate window. The animations are sorted by category, and the file size of each animation is included in the listing. Also included is the minimum version of the Flash player that is required; the player is available free from The categories are: In addition, I have prepared a small tutorial in using Flash to do Physics animations. Database of Periodic Tables There are hundreds of periodic tables in web space, but there is only one comprehensive database of periodic tables & periodic system formulations. If you know of an interesting periodic table that is missing, please contact the database curator: Dr Mark R Leach. Harrington Periodic Tables So we start this effort tabula rasa (without preconceived ideas). 1) All atoms have a default "common denominator" structure at 270 mass units, irrespective of the element under discussion.

10 Tech Concepts You Need to Know for 2010 1. Anthropomimetic Machines No matter how closely a robot resembles a human on the outside, if you crack it open, the jumble of wires is unlikely to bear much resemblance to our insides.
