Cern finds possible door to a new dimension

Two independent research teams have found evidence of a particle that could revolutionize physics. Or they have found something else. Or nothing Some physicists had to sit on the ground and the stairs, as representatives of the Cern yesterday reported at Geneva of their most recent works. One still has to be very careful when it comes to explaining anomaly in a data series. For it could be a pure coincidence. “It would be huge,” Kyle Cranmer, an American physicist who is involved in the research, says to the New York Times . In any event, the rash in the data series would have happened twice. Two independent, approximately 3,000 strong research teams have emerged. Dieselben teams, CMS and Atlas, had found four references to the Higgs particle four years ago. Heavy cousin of the Higgs particle Now, in experiments with the upgraded particle accelerator LHC, they may have encounteredthe

Do you know what is the SAR number?

It’s time to learn about a very important number in todays lifestyle My friend and i were talking the other day about the latest mobiles and what they offer, after some time we were browsing the web and checking info when we first noticed about SAR. I am ashamed to say, but neither I nor he knew what SAR radiation was and how much was emitted by our cell phones. We were obligated to search find and present you info about this type of radiation. First, let’s see what SAR really is: The SAR value or otherwise Specific Absorption Rate shows to what extent the radiation emmited by a source is absorbed by the body and is unique for each device. The mobile phone manufacturers even give two values, one for the head and one for the body, where the head is always greater the dose due to the full

What is a Radio Wave?

Radio waves are electromagnetic waves with a frequency of about 3 kHz to 300 GHz. Microwaves are a subset of the radio waves with frequencies ranging between 300 MHz and 3 GHz. Radio waves are generated by the movement of electric charges on the antenna, and referred to as radio frequency (RF) radiation, for irradiating the area away from the source, i.e. the transmitting antenna. The airwaves belong to the category of non-ionizing radiation (more about the radiation and its values) as it is unable to break chemical bonds or to extract electrons from atoms, causing ionization of matter such as radiation (X-rays, gamma rays). In contrast to ionization, which is dangerous because it can lead to deterioration of the genetic material and cause harmful effects on health (such as cancer), the main biological effect of radio waves under certain circumstances is the increase of tissue temperature exposed to them.

The measurement of stellar parallax by Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel

Stellar Parallax The man’s attempt to determine the distance of stars from Earth has a long history. The Greek astronomer Aristarchus of Samos (320 BC-250 BC) and the Polish astronomer Copernicus knew that if the Earth revolved around the Sun, one would expect the stars to shift back and forth every year. The theory of Aristarchus almost completed the Kepler (16os- 17th c. AD), mystic and mathematician, proposed the elliptical orbits of the planets, argued that the Sun, “the center of the temple of God”, ensures the movement of the planets and formulated the laws of motion of celestial bodies, which Newton completed the “law of universal gravitation.” The Aristarchos work ranks among the brightest minds in Greek and ancient world. The findings have enormous scientific value and leave astonished astronomers today, as no one can be sure how it was made. Unfortunately, Aristarchus and Copernicus never managed to observe
