Deutschlandfunk - Programmtipp Von Frank Grotelüschen 2012 erlebte die Physik einen heiß ersehnten Triumph - die Entdeckung des Higgs-Teilchens durch den Genfer Superbeschleuniger LHC. Das Higgs war der letzte noch fehlende Baustein des "Standardmodells", des derzeitigen Theoriegebäudes der Physik. Doch längst ist klar: Das goldene Standardmodell hat Risse, die Welt, sie ist viel größer, als das Standardmodell glauben macht. Fieberhaft fahnden Fachleute inzwischen nach einer noch umfassenderen und grundlegenderen Theorie. Bislang hat der LHC zur Enttäuschung mancher Experten noch keine Indizien aufgespürt. Hinweis: Die ist der zweite Teil der Serie "Vorstoß in die Schattenwelt".

The Biology Corner American Field Guide The American Field Guide site has been retired from and is no longer available Produced in 2001 by Oregon Public Broadcasting, American Field Guide was an early experiment in online video for PBS. A unique local-national partnership, AFG presented a curated collection of over 1400 outdoors and recreation videos, produced by nearly 30 local stations around the country. Many of the programs and videos featured on AFG are still available through local station websites. Below is a list of participating programs and stations.

Biology For Kids - Vocabulary Strategies It is vital that teachers give students the tools for acquiring their own rich vocabulary. Students will learn many words when they encounter them in meaningful contexts, but other words must be directly taught . Repeated meaningful encounters with words in read-alouds, in conversation, in personal reading, in discussion, or in media viewing can lead students to build vocabulary over time. Teachers should model effective word learning strategies for students.

Q&A: What is dark matter? And how do we know it exists? - Science - News How do we know it exists if we cannot see it? We know it is there from the gravitational effect it has on the objects we can see, like the stars and galaxies. Scientists estimate that about 24 per cent of the Universe is composed of this “missing mass”, with the rest made up of dark energy, which is forcing the Universe to expand at an ever-faster rate. What is dark matter made of? There have been two competing theories. How does the AMS work? It cannot detect neutralinos directly, but can detect the particles given off when they collide in a process known as annihilation. What are the results of AMS? It has detected an excess of positrons, indicating the existence of neutralinos, but these could still come from distant pulsars – rotating neutron stars.

Doc Brown's (chemistry teacher) GCSE Science Biology Physics HOMEPAGE Revision Notes Quizzes e-learning website free to use online An end to our darkest secret? Scientists close to explaining dark matter - Science - News The first results of a £1.3bn experiment on the International Space Station suggest that dark matter is composed of sub-atomic particles that permeate all regions of space, with a combined gravitational force that influences the movements of the biggest objects, from planets and solar systems to stars and galaxies. For decades, cosmologists have argued over the nature of dark matter. Estimates show that we can see only about 5 per cent of the matter in the universe – composed of visible objects such as stars and galaxies – and that a further 24 per cent of mass is in the form of invisible dark matter, with the rest of the Universe composed of something even more mysterious called dark energy. Now the alpha magnetic spectrometer (AMS) instrument on the space station has detected the strongest signs yet that dark matter may indeed be composed of sub-atomic particles known as neutralinos, which are so weakly-interacting that they pass straight through the Earth without stopping.

HyperPhysics Concepts About HyperPhysics Rationale for Development HyperPhysics is an exploration environment for concepts in physics which employs concept maps and other linking strategies to facilitate smooth navigation. Part of the intent for this exploration environment is to provide many opportunities for numerical exploration in the form of active formuli and standard problems implemented in Javascript. New content for HyperPhysics will be posted as it is developed. A resource that was initiated as a resource for local high school physics teachers whom I had taught has expanded into an intensively used website worldwide. CD or DVD versions have been sent to 86 countries to date, and translations into German, Italian, Chinese, and Español have been licensed and are underway. Please respect the Copyright HyperPhysics (©C.R. Availability on DVD or CD If you are interested, the full current content of HyperPhysics can be provided to you on cross-platform DVD or USB memory for the cost of $50. HyperPhysics
