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”

What kind of tiny particles are waiting for us?

Physicists today use linear and circular particle accelerators as high-resolution microscopes to study the pieces of atoms, so small, to not been seen without. Astronomers, using a dozen or so new supersize telescopes, also study the same tiny particles, but theirs are waiting for them in space. This strange collision can be saw as aContinue reading “What kind of tiny particles are waiting for us?”

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”

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”

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”
