SCIENCE OF THE WINTER OLYMPICS: BLADE RUNNERS

submitted by: nsf

The U.S. speed skating team has two best hopes against a powerful South Korean team that took three- of-a-possible-four golds in Torino: Apolo Ohno and J.R. Celski--an 18-year-old World Champion in his first Olympics. Speed skating is all about force and movement--what, in physics, are known as Newton's First Three Laws of Motion. Celski and physicist George Tuthill of Plymouth State University explain.

SCIENCE OF THE WINTER OLYMPICS: BANKING ON SPEED

The winter games in Vancouver provide a chance for the United States' four-man bobsled team to win its first gold medal in more than 60 years. And with the help of Paul Doherty, senior scientist at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, Deborah King, associate professor in the Department of Exercise and Sports Sciences at Ithaca College, physicist George Tuthill of Plymouth State University, and bobsled designer Bob Cuneo, the team explains how they hope to accomplish this feat.

Science of NFL Football - Newton's Second Law of Motion

submitted by: nsf
"Science of NFL Football" is a 10-part video series funded by the National Science Foundation and produced in partnership with the National Football League. In this segment, NBC's Lester Holt breaks down Isaac Newton's Second Law of Motion and how it can effects the flight of the football as place kickers shoot for the goal posts. Professors Tony Schmitz of the University of Florida and Jim Gates of the University of Maryland explain why it truly can be "hit or miss" when it comes to...

Science of NFL Football - Kinematics

submitted by: nsf

In this segment, NBC's Lester Holt and former NFL running back Deuce McAllister explore kinematics on the playing field. NSF-funded scientists Tony Schmitz from the University of Florida and John Ziegert of Clemson University explain how the kinematic concepts of position, velocity and acceleration can be used to define how a running back moves.

Relativistic Phase Displacement Space Drive - Warping Space Time with Phased Standing Waves

submitted by: MFerreiraJr

It is a brief explanation about a relativistic space propulsion system which uses a lattice/matrix of Phase Displacement Space Drives, producing crisscrossing pattern of Phased Standing Waves, to generate a sequence of spinning waves for causing a FTL moving force, in order to warp spacetime, enabling fast interstellar travel in an energy-efficient way.

Star Drive Propulsion - A New Way to Get Around

submitted by: dplews
A new method of creating continuous thrust is demonstrated and explained. The device was designed and tested with the latest CAD software, the data set from which was then used to produce a physical, proof of concept, model that was then subjected to load cell testing to show and measure the thrust generated (4 axis -Test videos and results available upon request.), and was also given a real world test that is shown in the video that gives clear visual proof of its ability. This video...
