• Time Travel Speed Of Light
    1,373 words
    For many years time travel was the stuff of science fiction. This was all just part of the world's imagination until recently. Scientists now believe that the current laws of physics allow us to travel though time. They believe that we can now travel back to see our founding fathers sign the declaration of independence. We could travel to 2999 to witness the birth of the next new millennium. Such travel would require a machine capable of withstanding great pressures and incredible amounts of spe...

    Black Holes There are many strange and wonderful phenomenons being discovered throughout our Universe. One of the most intriguing is the concept of a black hole in space. Astronomers have discovered a black hole just 1, 600 light years away from Earth. The National Radio Astronomy Observatory cataloged this black hole in the constellation Sagitta ri on a star called V 4641. A black hole is one form of a dead star. A star has three choices when it dies, it can: shrink until it is a white dwarf, ...

Bob recently returned from his trip to the edge of the universe and we were fortunate enough to talk to Bob about what he experienced on his journey. We also got the opportunity to talk with Bob's close friend, Jill, who eyew...
  • Light Wave Particle Properties
    832 words
    Light is what we see. It can be thought of either as a particle, (the photon), or as a wave. The photon we can easily think of as a small dot travelling through space at the speed of light. Each photon has a particular colour or energy. But how do we think of light as a wave For this we need to know that light is also an "Electro-magnetic field" - a combination of electric-field and magnetic-field - the same thing that causes static electricity and magnets to attract (or repel) things. Light is ...

    T I M E"Time, what time is it? Is it time for class already? No, we still have some time." It is time that we have totally forgotten about, and have taken it for granted for so long. But does time really exist? Does the 24 Hours of the day mean anything? Or does 12 months? Time means different things to different people. According to "COLLINS COBUILD Learner's Dictionary" ( (c) Harper Collins Publishers Ltd. 1996) time is defined as 'the measurement we measure in minutes, hours, days, and years....

    One of the few remaining mysteries of science is the black hole. When a star runs out of fuel to keep it burning, it explodes into a supernova (Intro. to Black Holes 1) After a supernova, some of the matter that was blown off leaves in pockets to different places in space. These pockets contract to from a pulsar, or new born star. The rest of the matter left from the massive explosion of the supernova comes back together forming a neutron star. If the dead star was too massive, the neutron star ...

However after I got into higher level mathematics I found it easier... i still don't do incredibly well in math however (in strong german a cent). Me: ok... enough small talk... now for the big question. Einstein: what would that be? ? ? (in strong german a cent...

    Inventor Project April 1, 1996 Albert Einstein My name is Albert Einstein. I was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm, Germany. I was not an inventor in the conventional sense. I was a physicist and theorist. My inventions were not tangible things, but ideas I put on paper and may later on have led to inventions. I was not a good student in school. I did not pay attention to teachers because I found their lectures and teachings boring. Often I would skip class to go study physics on my own. By the age...
  • Worm Holes Find A Wormhole
    486 words
    Worm Holes and Time Travel It is believed that our universe is curved like a U shape (see figure 1-1). For a while, it was only believed that you could travel back in time. It was never thought that you could travel into the future. Stephen Hawking had a theory that there are loops or shortcuts in the universe that could warp you from one part of space to another. He called it a wormhole. Wormholes are also unstable. They can collapse at any time and pinch off into two separate singularities (s...

    Genius Overlooked Jess Brock Algebra III Summer School Mr. Palumbo July 24, 1999 Stephen Hawking is, all in all, one of the greatest thinkers of the twentieth century. Dr. Hawking is a theoretical physicist. In his own words, "A theoretical physicist[tries] to construct mathematical models which represent the universe." Sadly, though, his triumphs are often overshadowed by his illness. Dr. Hawking suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and generally his successes are viewed "even though" o...

    Albert Einstein, the famous German born physicist, accomplished many outstanding things in his life. He developed five papers that changed the way people viewed science forever, (MacGill, 1989). Einstein is known as a brilliant physicist who contributed more to the scientific world than any other person. His theories on relativity paved the way for how science currently views time, space, energy, and gravity. Einstein was so advanced in his thinking that his studies and work set the standards fo...
  • Black Holes Do They Exist
    1,833 words
    Black holes are postulated to be one of the most destructive forces known in the universe, with nothing being able to escape from its gaping maw, not even light. Even, supposedly, all known laws of physics fall apart inside the depths of the black hole. So how does the universe allow these objects to exist? Or rather do they exist or are they just a product of humanity's misunderstanding? Fundamentally black holes are a product of gravity, the weakest of the four known forces in the universe. It...

    GPS systems are navigation systems that can locate a person to within a few meters. The system was created and previously restricted to the military, but for an unknown reason, they decided to open it up for everyone to use. The Global Positioning System works off of 24 satellites that are strategically positioned around the entire globe. There are really 27 satellites, but three extras are kept up there incase one of the satellites decides to become dysfunctional. These satellites have about a ...
  • Speed Of Light Time Miles Earth
    1,895 words
    Light travels at about 186, 000 miles per second. Now, by looking at this number you may conclude that light travels really fast. Sure it does compared to the fastest that we can go or anything that we have ever made can go. But if you look at how long it takes light to travel distances you probably won't think it's so fast anymore. The distance from Earth to the Moon is about 239, 000 miles. That means that light takes 1. 2 seconds to travel that far. Yeah that is still fast you may say. But l...

    Albert Einstein discovered the theory of relativity in the 1920's after starting thinking about it at the age of around 16. Albert Einstein's theory of time travel is basically theory of relativity. They are linked side-by-side. Relativity is only a theory because it cannot be proven. If it were a law it would have to be proven. In order to prove that relativity is a true we would need to conduct an experiment in which we would send an rocket with a person in it at 99. 99% the speed of light th...
  • The Rise Of Einstein Ian Special Relativity
    1,931 words
    In 1905, Einstein's Theory of Special Relativity was proposed. The reason that it is so "special" is because it was part of the more complex and extensive Theory of General Relativity, which was published in 1915. His theory reshaped the world of physics when it contradicted all previous laws of motion erected by Galileo and Newton. By mathematically manipulating these previous laws of motion, physicists in the nineteenth century were able to explain such phenomena as the flow of the ocean, the ...

    Mike Black Holes BLACK HOLES Mike Carey Scientists have been trying to determine if black holes (earlier known as 'frozen stars) truly do exist for several decades now. Thanks to the great Albert Einstein and his theory of relativity, researchers have been able to predict the cosmic phenomenon of black holes. A black hole is basically an area of space that has an unbelievably high area of concentrated mass for the space it occupies, making it impossible for an object to escape its gravitational ...
