Wherein we divulge why "the guy" and his ball are as one (at least in terms of momentum)
This week, the Breakdown takes a hard look at angular momentum. Don't get dizzy!
Move over, LHC -- the ILC will be 20 miles long
Researchers have learned an immune mechanism to control pathogens is similar in humans and amoebae
Physics you can draw
The most powerful and complex science experiment in the history of the universe is finally—after 14 years and $10 billion—about to begin. There's no telling what it may find, and that's entirely the point
She manipulates simple laws of physics to create “bullets” made of sound waves
The physics of a human bottle rocket
Treats for physicists, chemists, biologists, and others.
Do all those little things we do for the environment—recycling, giving up bottled water, going vegan—really make a difference?
Sure, the Large Hadron Collider has another two decades of cutting-edge science left in it, but physicists are already designing the high energy experiments of the future.
* that's a big, fat "might"
Two desktop-printer engineers quit their jobs to search for the ultimate source of endless energy: nuclear fusion. Could this highly improbable enterprise actually succeed?
And approximately 12 wows per minute
Popular Science is inside the U.N., where 150 heads of state are talking global warming. Will they put momentum behind an international treaty in 2015?
Multi-terawatt lasers make acceleration possible on a scale of inches instead of miles
All of the compression algorithms are based on outdated understanding of how the human ear works.
Happy Throwback Thursday!
And how to use physics principles to improve your skills.
Surf's up at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in California.
The limits of travel are defined not by what vehicles can do, but by what vehicles can do to us. So how much can we take?
The most advanced eye on Earth gives its owner a fighting chance
Even a double dose of the morning-after contraception isn't likely to work.
Method might shrink particle accelerators from town size to table size
