School Winner: The Quantum World

Since listening to Johnjoe McFadden and Jim Al-Khalili discuss their book ‘Life on the Edge: The Coming of Age of Quantum Biology’ at Surrey University last October, I’ve been immensely fascinated by the way that quantum mechanics, despite only affecting the very small, can underpin science and even explain how our bodies work. 559 kata lagi

Paradox and the Hope of Progress

by Elizabeth

A few months ago I came across the phrase “No paradox, no progress” in a science magazine. The quote was attributed to quantum physicist Niels Bohr and immediately grabbed my attention. 629 kata lagi


Watch: Niels Bohr, the man behind the atomic theory, uncovered live at Perimeter Institute

Almost every theoretical physicist today owes something to Niels Bohr.

He’s the man who, quite literally, coined atomic theory and all the particle physics to follow. 219 kata lagi


Meet the man who gave us atomic theory and the bomb: Niels Bohr's grandson in conversation

Niels Bohr is the man behind the atomic theory that gave us everything from medical isotopes to the bomb.

But you probably best remember him from those circular models used to break down the building blocks of everything in high school class. 1.452 kata lagi


Retrotechtacular: Gone Fission

This week’s film begins as abruptly as the Atomic Age itself, though it wasn’t produced by General Electric until 1952. No time is wasted in getting to the point of the thing, which is to explain the frightening force of nuclear physics clearly and simply through friendly animations. 221 kata lagi
