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.

Multiphase Thermoelectric Converter - Turning Waste Heat into Usable Electric Power

submitted by: MFerreiraJr
The Multiphase Thermoelectric Converter is a direct thermal-to-electrical energy conversion system designed in order to harvest most of the waste heat energy efficiently into electricity, reducing weight and size of space heat radiators, making fusion-powered space propulsion more energy-efficient than ever. The Multiphase Thermoelectric Converter consists of two opposing twisting electromagnetic forces, forming two contra-aligned electrodynamic vortices, for axially and radially...

CHALK TALK: LARGE HADRON COLLIDER

submitted by: nsf

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world's largest and highest-energy particle accelerator. It is expected to address some of the most fundamental questions of physics, advancing the understanding of the deepest laws of nature.

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...
