Astronomers use tools like telescopes, cameras and spectrographs to study interactions between materials and energy within the universe. These scientists learn about galaxies, solar systems, planets and stars through careful observation and measurement recording. Astronomers also refer to natural sciences and mathematics to form and test theories. An integral part…

Here s some cosmically bad news: The universe is dying. An international team of scientists that used seven powerful telescopes around the world to capture light coming from more than 200, galaxies has found that they’re putting out half of the light that they did just 2 billion years ago – and they’re continuing to fade. The findings, presented at the General Assembly…

I know my way around the British university system best. Other answers cover the options in continental Europe fairly thoroughly so I won t deal with those particularly, though ETH Zurich is widely acknowledged as a particularly high quality institution. As an aside though, you should be careful about international league tables which are principally focused on assessing…

Should the Government Fund space exploration

If you google it, you won t find anything that says what we ve learned, how it helps us, or how we are paying for space exploration! Either get it on google or never use it again! It s like no one cares enough to tell us what we ve learned.. Or we haven t learned anything at all! Incentivize the Private Sector Gov t run research is not usually successful. Prime examples…

Living matter, at the molecular scale, is different from usual matter. Biological macromolecules deform without breaking, couple reactions to motion, perform tasks. Stretching a point, we may say that at the molecular scale, life is the coupling of chemical reactions to conformational motion. We are interested in the essence of life (Indiana-Jones fashion), thus in…

ALIGNMENT OF THE PYRAMIDS TO TRUE NORTH The Great Pyramid s north-south axis is aligned to within three-sixtieths of a degree of true north-south. It would be worthwhile to note that this alignment is more accurate than that of the Meridian Building at the Greenwich Observatory in London, which deviates from true north by nine-sixtieths of a degree. Even though there…
