COVID Vaccine: Where does freedom end and civic duty begin?

Now that the vaccine is becoming widely available, why do so many insist on not taking it? As different episodes in history have illustrated — including the building of an atomic bomb in the U.S. – true freedom is to choose to place the well-being of your family, community, and country above your own personal values. We shouldn't confuse the privilege of choice with a threat to personal freedom. In threatening times, our best defense is to act together to the benefit of all.Pandemic fatigue is b...

Particle Mystery Deepens, As Physicists Confirm That the Muon Is More Magnetic Than Predicted

sciencehabit writes: A potential chink in physicists' understanding of fundamental particles and forces now looks more real. New measurements confirm a fleeting subatomic particle called the muon may be ever so slightly more magnetic than theory predicts, a team of more than 200 physicists reported this week. That small anomaly -- just 2.5 parts in 1 billion -- is a welcome threat to particle physicists' prevailing theory, the standard model, which has long explained pretty much everything they'...

#NobelForMileva Wants History to Recognize the Influential Women in STEM

The struggles of marginalized genders working in STEM are many. For some, both the cause of these issues and the path to solving them lies in the past. The barriers that prevented women like Mileva Mari?, Albert Einstein's first wife, from entering the same fields as men loomed high in their day. But their subsequent...

How to work together, be more creative, and think way ahead …. gamify!

What made Albert Einstein say, “Games are the most elevated form of investigation”? As a physicist, shouldn’t he have put science on a pedestal? In her course Collaborative Foresight: How to Game the Future Jane McGonigal attempts to solve this mystery. McGonigal discovered that Einstein was a “very obsessed chess player”. He talked about chess […]

Even in mathematics, who you know may matter more than your talent

In a recent study, researchers collected data on the backgrounds and academic genealogy of thousands of mathematicians.The results revealed that mathematicians of certain backgrounds—namely, from Western countries—are significantly more likely to join elite circles in mathematics.The researchers issued recommendations for how elite institutions could help the Fields Medal accomplish its original goal.As the "universal language," mathematics is commonly considered to be an egalitarian field.After...

Giant hidden black hole discovered only 1.4 billion years after the Big Bang

Black holes are some of the most bizarre objects in the Universe but their existence is a robust prediction of the general theory of relativity of Albert Einstein. The discovery by Roger Penrose in the 1960s was honored with the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2020, along with the more recent discovery of Andrea Ghez and Reinhard Genzel of a giant black hole at the center of our Galaxy with a mass millions of times that of the sun.Scientists have known for some time that much larger black holes with m...

3 physics problems between us and interstellar wormhole travel

Sci-fi movies and books love wormholes—how else can we hope to travel through interstellar distances?But wormholes are notoriously unstable; it's hard to keep them open or make them big enough.Two new papers offer some hope in solving both of these issues, but at a high price. Imagine if we could cut paths through the vastness of space to make a network of tunnels linking distant stars somewhat like subway stations here on Earth?

The way we teach science misses something key: Human context

The teaching of science must and can be humanized at all levels, from nonscience courses to technical advanced courses.By teaching science only as a technical endeavor, we deprive students and future scientists of a more inclusive worldview where science is seen as part of our human need to make sense of the world.The challenges we face in the modern world call for an engagement of the sciences and the humanities that starts in the classroom and becomes an essential aspect of the public sphere. ...

World-record laser transmission could prove Einstein's theory

Researchers from Australia and France team up for a record-breaking laser transmission.The new technique avoids atmospheric interference. It can be used to test aspects of Einstein's theory of relativity and advance communications. Scientists achieved the most stable transmission of a laser signal through the atmosphere ever made, beating a world record. The team managed to send laser signals from one point to another while avoiding interference from the atmosphere. Their very precise method...

7 reasons to file your tax return early

Photo by Kay Bell The 2021 filing season won't start until Feb. 12 this year. That's frustrating for the millions of taxpayers who traditionally are early return filers. It's more frustrating for those taxpayers who, because of COVID-19 complications (which also created this year's filing delay), are really counting on their tax refunds to cover expenses. This year's later than usual filing start means it is even more important to get those 1040 forms into the Internal Revenue Service as ...

“Next Saturday night, we’re sending you back to the future”: A mise en scene analysis of a still from Back to the Future

In Robert Zemeckis’ Back to the Future (1985), one of the more iconic moments of the movie takes place about an hour into it when both Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and Doctor Brown (Christopher Lloyd) figure out how to “harness” the power of lightning to send Marty “back to the future.” Doc Brown says these last thrilling words in his living room one evening as he suddenly points directly at the camera, as if the audience in the movie are looking on from the future itself (as in a sense they a...

A curious thing happened at the end of the 19th century and the dawning of the 20th. As European and American industries became increasingly confident in their methods of invention and production, scientists made discovery after discovery that shook their understanding of the physical world to the core. “Researchers in the 19th century had thought they would soon describe all known physical processes using the equations of Isaac Newton and James Clerk Maxwell,” Adam Mann writes at Wired. But “t...
