The Enigmatic Satellites of Saturn Gary Peterson Professor Emeritus Department of Geological Sciences San Diego State University Saturn, everyone's favorite planet, is the second-largest of the outer giant gas planets and has the lowest density (0.7) of any planet. The others gas planets are about 1.5. In addition, Saturn has the largest satellite (Titan) in the Solar System. Titan is about the same size as Mercury of the inner Solar System. How can this be? It is suggested that...

Biggest Physics Discovery of this Century

Magnetism is caused by the Bernoulli effect.

The Bernoulli effect is to Pressure - as Gravity is to electrical-mass Pressure.

A Live Wire : Machismo of a Distant Surface

submitted by: hsrikm

Presented is evidence for the supposition of the existence of an unknown process of an unknown surface postulated to effect simultaneously cognition in the elaboration of concepts, and physical details of a pathology. A more relative cosmology, absent of numerical/mathematical constants is elaborated to show that the results of science method can be subjective.

The Fourteen Lattices of Auguste Bravais

submitted by: SirZerp

This video is made as a primer for Condensed Matter students and is showing the potential energy fields of different Bravais Lattices.

It was made using the Coulomb's law to compute a cube of data. The dataset is then sent to a ray tracer which produces the images in the video. The background colors show the potential energy contours of different charge configurations. The colors red green blue are used in an alternating sequence for adjacent contours.

EINSTEIN'S MESSENGERS, LIGO AND THE SEARCH FOR GRAVITY WAVES

submitted by: nsf
Einstein's Messengers is an Award-winning 20-minute documentary on LIGO, NSF's Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory. The video examines how LIGO is spearheading the completely new field of gravitational wave astronomy and opening a whole new window on the universe. It explains how LIGO's exquisitely sensitive instruments may ultimately take us farther back in time than we've ever been, catching, perhaps, the first murmurs of the universe in formation. Above all, Einstein's...
