Grafici, relazioni, regole…

Ricercare relazioni e regole fra grandezze è un’attività che è a fondamento stesso della scienza. Gli studi avanzano grazie ai dati che seguono da predizioni quanto più accurate e vicine all’osservazione metodica dei fenomeni naturali. Oggi, per fortuna, disponiamo di una miriade di documenti storici capaci di presentarci un’eccellente panoramica di alcuni dei più importantiContinue reading “Grafici, relazioni, regole…”

Il mondo quantistico di Enrico Gazzola, una recensione.

Se le librerie delle nostre città stanno diversificando l’estensione della sezione dedicata alla scienza, così come l’offerta di testi dedicati a smascherare l’inadeguatezza di fondo delle pseudoscienze, un motivo ci sarà. Molti di noi sanno già come quest’ultimo sia un fenomeno complesso, spesso ignoto a coloro che la scienza vera la riconoscono e la ricercanoContinue reading “Il mondo quantistico di Enrico Gazzola, una recensione.”

This is not only a detection: is a beautiful equilibrium

Physicists and astronomers – from all over the world – are still excited after one of the biggest breakthroughs of the decade related to the discovery of gravitational waves and gamma rays’ existence, thanks to the collaboration LIGO-Virgo. I want to make a small reference on gamma rays that are usually thought to be producedContinue reading “This is not only a detection: is a beautiful equilibrium”

Some reflections on SE

Nowadays lots of countries seek to introduce a paradigm shift in scientific education (SE). The latter sin of a lack of relevance and a boring approach where notions should be memorized in short time, when the risk of doubtful abstractness and “difficult tendency” to define the plot raise day after day, in line with theContinue reading “Some reflections on SE”

Three challenges for education leaders

I know that this statement may sound weirdContinue reading “Three challenges for education leaders”

GIOCA CON LA FISICA, what a journey!

This article presents my last experience in science communication for physics: ‘Gioca con la Fisica’ an experiential activity dedicated to increase children curiosity and deeper interest to physics and scientific principles at the base of inquiry learning. In occasion of the European Researcher Night of this year, many of the students in Physics of theContinue reading “GIOCA CON LA FISICA, what a journey!”

A reflection on the Story of the Universe

If I’m saying the Story of the Universe, what can be first elements of reference? The human story of the universe can be defined as what we understand about the universe that we live in. I can bet lot of us start their day with lots of open questions. Perhaps they are enriched with soContinue reading “A reflection on the Story of the Universe”

The secret of a nice cup of Coffee

When you’ll turn up your eyes to the moon…

Is this title too poetic for a blog science’ passionate? Tell me about it 🙂 So if it bother you or give you a strong particular impression shield it or leave it behind – if you can handle that – until the end of this post. In fact, yesterday I’d the idea for this postContinue reading “When you’ll turn up your eyes to the moon…”

White, Light, Optics

Today I’ve started my day reflecting on the deeper and symbolic meaning that colors may have. For example in ancient Egypt the men related to religion and god adoration was used to dress only in white linen. Perhaps the first analogy that you may have now in mind is how some people are used toContinue reading “White, Light, Optics”
