Part I Part II The Origins Project at ASU presents the final night in the Origins Stories weekend, focusing on the science of storytelling and the storytelling of science. The Storytelling of Science features a panel of esteemed scientists, public intellectuals, and award-winning writers including well-known science educator Bill Nye, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, evolutionary [...]
Professor Moriarty requested that we re-visit one aspect of physics in the game Portal 2 – humour him!
Caught in the Cosmic Web – Dark Matter Structure Revealed by Hubble Space Telescope.
First Tests For Fusion-Powered Spaceship Propulsion Successful.
Astronaut Dan Burbank had the idea before leaving the earth, so decided to pack appropriately. For the experiment with the three different knitting needles being performed by the same man, check the video. It’s really quite amazing.

Watch Peter Wothers deliver the 2012 Christmas Lectures: http://richannel.org/christmas-lectur… Most people know the advice about never putting water on an oil fire. We joined Dr Peter Wothers on the roof of the Ri building in London to show exactly why. Above the famous Lecture Theatre, the team set up a clear protective shield around a [...]

Chris Hadfield — the ever-tweeting, always charming Canadian running the space station these days — has had an eventful few months in space. If he’s not chatting with Captain Kirk, he’s playing guitar or, as it turns out, making very watchable videos.
Professor Ed Copeland on the latest news to come from the Planck project – talking about the Big Bang and the resulting microwave radiation.
Anti matter is the concept that anti particles exist in a mirror of particles that make up normal matter. Since electrons have a negative charge and protons have a positive charge, it only seems obvious that antielectrons should be positively charged and antiprotons should hold a negative charge. Based on that, antiwater could be formed from two antihydrogen molecules forming with an antioxygen molecule. Each process that forms normal matter can conceivably form in the antimatter world. The mixing of matter and antimatter would lead to the elimination of both in the same way that mixing antiparticles and particles does, thus giving rise to high-energy gamma rays or other particle/antiparticle pairs.
