Apparent offset of the winter solstice

Apparent offset of the winter solstice. There are many posts about this on the Internet, but a. Many are confusing, complex or both; b. Many people who haven’t a clue still hurl derision at those who have; Hence this brief and simple depiction: Although the winter solstice is within a day or two of the … Continue reading Apparent offset of the winter solstice The post Apparent offset of the winter solstice appeared first on pjf.

new solar thermal material

A new solid state material has been developed that stores daylight in a solid state form (like batteries) without the need for expensive batteries.  It can be triggered to release the energy as heat on demand, so simple applications such as harvesting energy during the day to heat the building after dusk are proposed Research … Continue reading new solar thermal material The post new solar thermal material appeared first on pjf.

In Search of the Edge of Time – John Gribbin

Gribbin sets out to explain how time travel is theoretically possible and looks at the various different ways which might allow it. He pays particular attention to the most likely time-machine: that provided by the concept of the “wormhole”. Like a tunnel through space and time, a wormhole could connect different regions of the Universe which … Continue reading In Search of the Edge of Time – John Gribbin The post In Search of the Edge of Time – John Gribbin appeared first on pjf.

Make your own LED lights

Having depressed everyone with part 1 of institutional corruption, and hopefully instilled a little hope with the excellent work of Professor Lawrence Lessig, here’s an example of the other side of the coin.An educated democratic population can gain considerable freedom from the corporate/banking/consumer world by making your own goods.    A particularly satisfying example is … Continue reading Make your own LED lights The post Make your own LED lights appeared first on pjf.

cosmological standard model news

It’s about time there was an upset in theoretical physics. Sadly, the cosmological standard model seems to have become dogma in much the same way as other theories over the millenia.  Several news stories, a positive flurry in fact, have emerged over the last few month:  Dark matter theory challenged by gassy galaxies result 25 … Continue reading cosmological standard model news The post cosmological standard model news appeared first on pjf.

Quantum Physics Beginners Guide

by Alastair Rae.   When I was a physics undergraduate, Alastair Rae’s text book on Quantum Physics was the standard teaching reference, and rightly so. Now that he has time, he’s written a similar book for non-physicists, so the interested non-specialist can try to understand the non-intuitive, counter ‘common sense’ reality of the sub-microscopic physical world. … Continue reading Quantum Physics Beginners Guide The post Quantum Physics Beginners Guide appeared first on pjf.

Particle Physics – Brian Martin

A Beginners Guide physics book, companion to Quantum Physics Beginners Guide also aimed at the interested non-physicist. Brian Martin begins the book with an introduction to the known fundamental particles (I.e. indivisible constituents of the world of matter and energy) and the forces that exist between them. Tables and diagrams provide simple pictorial models and … Continue reading Particle Physics – Brian Martin The post Particle Physics – Brian Martin appeared first on pjf.

What Dark Matter?

quote: Theoretical physicists have discovered that we live in a universe where dark energy pushes things apart while dark matter tries to pull things together.from today’s post  – http://bit.ly/1hfzcJqHave they?Mach’s Principle states that only relative motion exists. So if the universe revolved around us (relative to what?) we would feel centrifugal force exactly as though we had … Continue reading What Dark Matter?
