Sonoluminescence is the emission of short bursts of light from imploding bubbles in a liquid when excited by sound.
I actually have many, many more questions and answers so if you want to see them, like this video and let me know in the comments and I will edit them. Thank you for your support! I wouldn’t have gotten this far without you.
How much faster can a group of caterpillars travel than an individual caterpillar on the same course?
Those who have a neurological condition called chromesthesia associate certain colors with certain sounds. It’s these people that I think of when I see Mark Fischer’s Aguasonic Acoustics project. Fischer systematically transforms the songs of whales, dolphins and birds into brightly colored, psychedelic art.
Tired of your clocks losing time? A new clock, which is the most accurate ever, uses ytterbium atoms and lasers to precisely define a second.
This week we continue to spend quality time with gases, more deeply investigating some principles regarding pressure – including John Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures, vapor pressure – and demonstrating the method for collecting gas over water.
Wednesday 29 May 2013 marks the 60th anniversary of Edmund Hillary & Tenzing Norgay’s first climb to the summit of Mount Everest. In two giant tents on the icy ground of Everest base camp, a team of scientists have been conducted research into the effects of low oxygen conditions.
Such as, storms can make your head hurt. And we should expect more turbulence on transatlantic flights.
Article by Nancy Atkinson originally posted on Universe Today Cold fusion has been called one of the greatest scientific breakthroughs that might likely never happen. On the surface, it seems simple – a room-temperature reaction occurring under normal pressure. But it is a nuclear reaction, and figuring it out and getting it to work has not been […]
A newly developed “quantum microscope” directly observes the electron orbitals of a hydrogen atom, using photoionization and an electrostatic magnifying lens.
Getting down to liquid helium temperatures (4K) may be fairly straight forward, but cooling below that requires taking advantage of quantum phenomena. In this video Associate Professor Andrea Morello from the University of New South Wales explains how ‘zero-point motion’ makes it possible to use Helium-3 and Helium-4 in a dilution fridge to get down to only thousandths of degrees above absolute zero.
Sean Carroll on the arrow of time.
We’ve all heard earthquakes described in terms of their magnitude number. But what does this scale really mean? This video illustrates the variation of energy released in easy-to-understand terms.
We can send satellites in the orbit and people to the Moon and predict solar eclipses thousands the years into the future but yet we cannot reliably predict the weather…
