“Santa Claus” Effect: a matter of Physics

Christmas is coming, and the questions of children about the nature of the fast and very organized Santa Claus take turns to gifts to buy in these long afternoons of exhausting search of them.   Luckily thought about it Dr Katy Sheen, a physicist at Exeter University, who found a scientific explanation for why Santa andContinue reading ““Santa Claus” Effect: a matter of Physics”

Albert Einstein. Why this name simbolize a revolution on science

I remember that some years ago, in 2005, scientists decide they should choose a Person of the Century. And of all the significant figures they considered for that honor, the one they ended up choosing was Albert Einstein. And on the face of it, this is really a remarkable decision, because Einstein, he was a theoretical physicist, heContinue reading “Albert Einstein. Why this name simbolize a revolution on science”

Where is escaped, the electron?

Where is escaped, the electron that until now hovered within the cathode ray tube of our TV? It seems that this electron is really a joker, while it is heading towards the screen … We can observe it while it appears in the “network” of pixels associated to our unit, and if it is perfectly comfortable andContinue reading “Where is escaped, the electron?”

LISA Pathfinder exceeds all expectations, and begins the era of gravitational astronomy

LISA’s work is the result of many sacrifices that allow the beginning of the era of gravitational astronomy. Why that? LISA Pathfinder has gone through a long series of tests, implemented and corrected in order to exceeded all expectations, and it is with this result that the ESA work, the Italian Space Agency (ASI), the National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN) and the University of Trento has been awarded.

Biological reproduction and Planck’s constant

Associate the phenomenon of biological reproduction to the laws of Planck’s constant? Reproduction in living beings born from random changes, so called mutations, that allowed you to create differences from one generation to another. Starting from the statistics that show the rate of mutations, such as the famous “laws” of Mendel on heredity of characters,Continue reading “Biological reproduction and Planck’s constant”

How Lorentz transformation improve the knowledge on space-time concept

Thanks to Lorentz transformation (name given by Henrì Poincarè) we have a theory that aim to give a scientific description of the change of viewpoint from one inertial frame to a second moving one. This specific change of viewpoint is called a (Lorentz) boost. Why Lorentz transformations are so important for human knowledge? His formulaeContinue reading “How Lorentz transformation improve the knowledge on space-time concept”

Natural Interconnections among Theoretics and Nature Physics

It is possible to fulfill the entente of natural interconnections present among Theoretics and Nature Physics? The advent of the scientific revolution has brought a profound change, observable in methods that allow us to study reality, and consequently in the relationships that develop between the Philosopher of Science, Tech expert and Nature. The paradigms that refer to theContinue reading “Natural Interconnections among Theoretics and Nature Physics”

The von Restorff Effect

Hello everybody! Let’s start this post with this image; have a rapid look at it. As you may understand, today I have encountered the isolation paradigm on my path, which refers to a distinctive feature of an item, that is in a list and differs from the others by way of dimension. Let’s start to analyze this from its basicContinue reading “The von Restorff Effect”

Theories in Physics and Reality

The theories of physics are trying to build a representation of reality, and to build links with the wide world of sense impressions. So our mental constructions are based on this relationship, and how it itself is built from the outside. Physics progresses through the seasons, and small discoveries (but great for those who workContinue reading “Theories in Physics and Reality”

How Science Communication should be

  How Science Communication should be is an ethic open question; still significant. We live in the ‘digital age‘, a time that has transformed how communication is thought and distributed. With the ubiquity of cellphones and other mobile devices that can connect us to the Internet world, the lines between content consumer and creator are blurred. Even moreContinue reading “How Science Communication should be”
