The Pico Microscope is the world’s most advanced electron microscope and is located on Tenerife in the Canary islands. It can magnify a billion times.
The MAGIC (Major Atmospheric Gamma-ray Imaging Cherenkov) telescope stands guard looking for violent explosions in the cosmos.
Will the gravitational effect of Dark Matter cause our expanding universe to begin a deceleration and ultimate collapse and cataclysmic implosion?
The shock findings are that the Universe is NOT decelerating, on the contrary it is accelerating at an increased rate.
The Sloan Survey uses precision cosmology to map the universe, in three dimensions, including the dark matter we know exists but cannot see.
Light bends around the mass of dark matter so its presence can be detected and measured.
Horizon explores the science of exploring the ever smaller. Splitting the atom was a start, but today’s small universe challenges technology.
We were taught about protons neutrons and electrons, we were also taught that these basic elements could be divided no further.
Using the MAGIC telescope to capture photons from the gamma ray bursts appears to indicate that the speed of light is not constant.
Through a wonderland of extra dimensions and multiple universes, down to the smallest place in the universe, a place that could change the face of physics.
Dark Energy The Universe is expanding. But what is fuelling this expansion? Gravity is holding the Universe together but, dark energy, an invisible force, is pushing the Universe apart. Welcome to very new picture of the universe. But even the…
The Sloan Survey is mapping, in three-dimensions, every galaxy in the observable Universe, a task centred in Cloudcroft, New Mexico.
The plugging team from Cloudcroft connected every galaxy with a fibre-optic cable then fitted the plate back over the telescope.
Lake Taal is the result of a massive volcanic eruption many years ago and displays some fascinating properties. The lake stores energy like a fuel cell.
Now, the fuel cell produces and exploits its proton gradient artificially. But there are places on earth where that gradient occurs completely naturally.
Scientists have proven that it is possible to split fundamental particles, like electons, into spinins, orbitons and holons.
The electron has, in one sense, been split in three. But it’s a measure of just how weird things are down here that it still considered to be fundamental.
