Astronomical Measuring Problem

Astronomical measuring problem reported in Wired Science 20 November 2018, in an article entitled “Cosmology Is in Crisis Over How to Measure the Universe”. The problem is trying to match a map of radiation believed to represent the early universe, (quirkily described as the universe’s “baby picture”), with what we see in the universe today. […]

Rain Spreads Crop Diseases

Rain spreads crop diseases, according to an article in ScienceDaily 20 November 2017. Previous research has shown that raindrops can spread microscopic pathogens, i.e. disease causing bacteria, viruses and fungi. A team of researchers at the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanics at Virginia Tech have now studied how the spread actually happens, using laser […]

Rainbow Physics Revealed

Rainbow physics revealed, according to a report in e! Science News, 7 December 2011 and ScienceShots 12 December 2011. The colours of the rainbow are the result of light being both refracted and reflected within drops of water. This has been known for hundreds of years, ever since Isaac Newton and Rene Descartes carried out […]

Quote: Tryon on Creation Ex Nihilo

‘In 1973, I proposed that our Universe had been created spontaneously from nothing (ex nihilo), as a result of established principles of physics. The novelty of a scientific theory of creation ex nihilo is readily apparent, for science has long taught us that one cannot make something from nothing.’ E.P. Tryon (Professor of Physics, City […]

Quantum Physics for Plants

Quantum physics for plants, reported in Nature, and Biology News Net 12 April 2007. Plants are able to extract energy from sunlight with almost 100% efficiency because the transfer of light energy into the reaction centres that begin the process of photosynthesis happens almost instantaneously. The transfer process has been a mystery, but researchers at […]

Loose Cable May Explain Speedy Neutrinos

Loose cable may explain speedy neutrinos, according to an article in Science vol. 335 p1027 2 March 2012, DOI: 10.1126/science.335.6072.1027. In December 2011 physicists at CERN in Switzerland caused a great stir in the scientific community when they published results of experiments indicating neutrinos could travel faster than the speed of light. As part of […]
