Apparently even NASA is wrong about which planet is closest to Earth

Earth is the third planet from the Sun, so our closest neighbor must be planet two or four, right?Wrong! Neither Venus nor Mars is the right answer. Three scientists ran the numbers. In this YouTube video, one of them explains why our nearest neighbor is... Mercury! Did Musk pick the wrong planet to die on? By 2024, Elon Musk wants to land humans on Mars – the billionaire entrepreneur has said that he himself wants to go to the Red Planet, and even wants to die there (just not on impact, he qui...

Is there room for creative imagination in science?

Not just once, but repeatedly, I have heard something like “I just didn’t see in science any room for my own imagination or creativity,” from young students clearly able to succeed at any subject they set their minds to. It is a tragedy that so many people do not perceive science as a creative. Yet it doesn’t take an Einstein to observe that without that essential creative first step of re-imagining what might be going on behind a natural phenomenon, there can be no science at all.Einstein had s...

Water Is All You Need to Revive Soggy Vegetables

Many things in life get soggy when wet, like paper, or expensively blow-dried hair. But plants do not work this way. Water makes them plumper, crispier, crunchier. Understand this fact and you’ll never suffer soggy lettuce again. Read more...

Visualize pitch like John Coltrane with this mystical image

Some musicians see Islamic mysticism; some the metaphysics of Einstein. But whether spiritual, theoretical, or both, even one John Coltrane pitch wheel is full of musical inspiration. One thing’s certain – if you want your approach to pitch to be as high-tech and experimental as your instruments, Coltrane’s sketchbook could easily keep you busy for a lifetime. Unpacking the entire music-theoretical achievements of John Coltrane could fill tomes – even this one picture has inspired a wide range...

Concentrate on the Positive, Not the Negative

--> The most successful people concentrate almost exclusively on the positive and not the negative. In fact, the negative hardly influences them at all. You need to see the world and the people in it as happy, prosperous, and good. Like attracts like. If you look for the negative, then negativity is what you will see. If you look for the positive, then positivity is what you will see. I had an interesting discussion recently with Dr. Surendra Pokharna, an Indian physicist, as we toured some Jain...

The missing "puzzle" page of Einstein’s unified theory of everything found

The Hebrew University makes public 110 new pages of Einstein's writings.Among the writings is a famously-missing page of calculations on the unified theory.Other papers by Einstein talk of politics and personal observations. None It's easy to wonder what Einstein, one of the world's most brilliant minds ever, would have come up with had he lived longer. Maybe he would have figured out the still-elusive theory of everything – not an unlikely feat for the creator of such transformative ideas as t...

The evolution of mathematics, from agriculture to quantum mechanics

Mathematics has snowballed from counting to 10 on our fingers, to calculus, to abstract concepts like imaginary numbers that move in 11 dimensions and predict particles physics.The math that led us down the rabbit hole of quantum mechanics is bizarre and while we can crunch the numbers, we can't really understand what they mean. If the math confirms that particles can move in 11 dimensions, is that a fundamental truth of the universe?
