What is The Nature of Reality? It’s a blog, and it’s pretty much the biggest question we could think of. We can’t promise that we’ll answer the question once and for all – in fact, we can pretty much guarantee that we won’t – but we promise a space that welcomes big ideas about space, time, and the universe; where we take questions as seriously as we take answers; where physics is about way more than inclined planes and levers and pulleys. Stick around; we just might expand your cosmic horizons.
Physics To Go is an online biweekly mini-magazine, and it's also a collection of more than 800 websites that you can search and browse.
On the night of March 26, 1938, nuclear physicist Ettore Majorana boarded a ship, cash and passport in hand. He was never seen again. In A Brilliant Darkness, theoretical physicist João Magueijo tells the story of Majorana and his research group, “the Via Panisperna Boys,” who discovered atomic fission in 1934. As Majorana, the most brilliant of the group, began to realize the implications of what they had found, he became increasingly unstable. Did he commit suicide that night in Palermo? Was he kidnapped? Did he stage his own death?
Megumi is a great tennis player but not so great at physics. Fortunately, Ryota, the stereotypical geek with a crush on Megumi, offers to help her with physics concepts. Using things Megumi already understands, like tennis and rollerblading, Ryota covers the basics of physics, including action and reaction, force and motion, momentum, and energy.
Presents a comprehensive encyclopedia containing over seven thousand articles covering all aspects of science and technology.
Each volume offers full-color diagrams, graphs, charts, and maps on every page that illustrate the essential elements of the subject, while parallel text provides key definitions and step-by-step explanations.
A docudrama about Albert Einstein's work in physics and role in the eventual development of nuclear power.
Physicist Brian Greene discusses the historical quest for a grand unified theory in physics which will reconcile quantum physics and general relativity, and considers the possibility that superstring theory may bring an end to that search.
Physics Today, the flagship publication of The American Institute of Physics, is the most influential and closely followed physics magazine in the world, informing readers about science and its place in the world with authoritative features, full news coverage and analysis, and fresh perspectives on technological advances and ground-breaking research.
Scientific American, the oldest continuously published magazine in the U.S., has been bringing its readers unique insights about developments in science and technology for more than 150 years.
