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.

SCIENCE OF THE WINTER OLYMPICS: AERIAL PHYSICS

submitted by: nsf

In the sport of freestyle aerials, skiers are judged on their ability to perform complex jumps in the air. Emily Cook, a 12-year veteran of the U.S. Freestyle team, and Paul Doherty, a Senior Scientist at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, show how these jumps actually come from three basic twisting techniques that you can try in your own classroom.

Science of NFL Football - Newton's Third 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 Third Law of Motion and how energy transfers between football players who collide during a game. Professors Tony Schmitz of the University of Florida and Jim Gates of the University of Maryland explain why momentum can keep a player moving or stop them in their tracks.

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

"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...

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 First Law of Motion and how it can change how fast players can speed the football up or slow it down. Professors Tony Schmitz of the University of Florida and Jim Gates of the University of Maryland explain why the control of inertia is so vital to the outcome of the game.

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...

Do objects have weight in space? - Take your classroom into space

submitted by: cristina
What's the difference between mass and weight? Do objects have weight in space? Students using ESAs 'Take Your Classroom into Space' kit and this video recorded in the unique environment of the ISS can now find out. The experiment was proposed by Greek, Belgian and Spanish teachers who participated to the ESA competition 'Take Your Classroom into Space'. http://www.esa.int/esaHS/education.html

Uniqueness, Self Belonging and Intercourse in Nature-New Version

submitted by: hsrikm
Biological organization is discussed within a holistic framework . A new orientation is presented of natural processes with an approach in model construction that is focused strictly on physical form and centered away from abstractions that escape the perceptual senses, lead towards the postulation of non-verifiable and non-witnessible entities. A universal construction composed of first perspective representations of path, witness as unique loci in volumes of space delineated as...
