Euclidean Spherical Mechanics – Euclidean/Minkowski Spacetime Metrics
Euclidean Spherical Mechanics – Spacetime Metrics – (Differential Mathematical Form): The study of Euclidean Spherical Mechanics, is a set of conceptual and mathematical tools, used to describe the physics of a spherically symmetric system mass body that creates its own gravitational field, while; at rest/static, in relativistic motion, spinning/rotating at rest, or spinning/rotating while in motion.…
“Vortex Gravitation” Model – Einstein Field Equation – Ordinary Mathematical Form
“Vortex Gravitation” Model - Einstein Field Equation - Ordinary Mathematical Form What makes the Inertial Mass "Gravitation Vortex" model very powerful and useful is that it predicts Isaac Newton's Graviation Laws and Einstein's General Theory of Relativity. The "Gravitation Vortex" model is described by the equations of General Relativity: The vortex model must obey the…
Revolution in physics as gravitational waves seen for first time
Einstein’s last prediction and one of the most anticipated discoveries in physics has finally been confirmed. The LIGO experiment has seen ripples in space-time, caused by a black hole merger
'Star Trek' Science: How Antimatter Powers The Enterprise [Infographic]
Many of us enjoy the science involved in Star Trek and with the release of Star Trek: Beyond this week I thought it would be fun to talk about one of the things that the movies and shows get right.
Seminar: Fusion and Plasma Physics
This course uses lectures and discussion to introduce the range of topics relevant to plasma physics and fusion engineering. An introductory discussion of the economic and ecological motivation for the development of fusion power is also presented. Contemporary magnetic confinement schemes, theoretical questions, and engineering considerations are presented by expert guest lecturers. Students enrolled in the course also tour the Plasma Science and Fusion Center experimental facilities.
Proton Spin Mystery Gains a New Clue | Amazing Science
Physicists long assumed a proton’s spin came from its three constituent quarks. New measurements suggest particles called gluons make a significant contribution.Protons have a constant spin that is an intrinsic particle property like mass or charge. Yet where this spin comes from is such a mystery it’s dubbed the “proton spin crisis.” Initially physicists thought a proton’s spin was the sum of the spins of its three constituent quarks. But a 1987 experiment showed that quarks can account for…
Helium Discovered in the Eroding Atmosphere of an Exoplanet
Scientists used Hubble observations of this object to obtain the first detection of helium in an exoplanetary atmosphere. The new measurements on WASP-107b represent the first time an atmosphere was detected via an infrared spectral line.
