Eta Carinae

Preview of a Forthcoming Supernova At the turn of the 19th century, the binary star system Eta Carinae was faint and undistinguished. In the first decades of the century, it became brighter and brighter, until, by April 1843, it was … Continue reading

Quantum state

Probability densities for the electron of a hydrogen atom in different quantum states.(Click on Image) In physics, a quantum state is a set of mathematical variables that fully describes a quantum system. *** Is there such a thing, as isometrical … Continue reading

The Nature of Reality

The last major changes to the periodic table was done in the middle of the 20th Century. Glenn Seaborg is given the credit for it. Starting with his discovery of plutonium in 1940, he discovered all the transuranic elements from … Continue reading

NASA’s Hubble Telescope Celebrates SN 1987A’s 20th Anniversary

A String of ‘Cosmic Pearls’ Surrounds an Exploding Star-NASA, ESA, P. Challis, and R. Kirshner (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics) Twenty years ago, astronomers witnessed one of the brightest stellar explosions in more than 400 years. The titanic supernova, called SN … Continue reading

Angels and Demons on a Pinhead

“Observations always involve theory.”Edwin Hubble Curvature Parameters Of course I had to point to the cosmological understanding that took us to this “geometrical understanding of things that are large.” But this is to be short, while I crunch the thoughts … Continue reading

N category and the Hydrogen spectrum

Picture of the 1913 Bohr model of the atom showing the Balmer transition from n=3 to n=2. The electronic orbitals (shown as dashed black circles) are drawn to scale, with 1 inch = 1 Angstrom; note that the radius of … Continue reading

CNO and the Law of Octaves

“String theory—the hot topic in physics for the past 20 years—is a dead-end, says Smolin, one of the founders of Canada’s Perimeter Institute of Theoretical Physics and himself a lapsed string theorist. In fact, he (and others) argue convincingly, string … Continue reading

If it’s Not a Soccer Ball, What is it?

Timaeus concludes And so now we may say that our account of the universe has reached its conclusion. This world of ours has received and teems with living things, mortal and immortal. A visible living thing containing visible things, and … Continue reading

Paul Dirac and Geometrical Thinking?

Into the Antiworld was originally staged at CERN inside the underground cavern that houses the Delphi experiment, in which collisions between electrons and their antiparticles – positrons – are studied. That setting must have been awe-inspiring, particularly as the show … Continue reading

A Classical Discription of the Quantum World?

D Orbital Orbitals are probability diagrams. Specifically, an orbital describes a region in space where there is a 90% change of finding an electron. The electron is never restricted to an orbital as in travels around a nucleus, but it … Continue reading
