Science Nation - Super Stars

submitted by: nsf
Who are the biggest super stars in the universe? For Adam Burrows, an astrophysics professor at Princeton University, it's not who, but "what," and they are far from Hollywood, or even earth, for that matter. Burrows would tell you biggest super stars are the stars that die in a massive explosion called a "supernova." With support from the National Science Foundation, Burrows investigates supernovae and he has recently created 3D computer simulations showing the actual moment of a star's...

Determining the Determined State : The Sizing of Size From Aside

submitted by: hsrikm
Science makes an unequal work of man/nature and man-as-nature/mature. It is postulated that legal/sociological rather than scientific interpetation, in determining the equalities and natural freedoms of individuals, have the greatest capability to steer towards logically valid and coherent world views in a modern setting where determined states of science theory are difficult to contend with for ethical judgement in light of unresolved paradox and a vast darkness in understanding of...
