Welcome aboard. If you’ve heard of the Philadelphia Experiment before, I hope I can show you something new. If you have not heard of the Philadelphia Experiment before: buckle the hell up. 2,395 more words


THE PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT - Part Four: "He Knew Why We Do Not War"

And so we come to the end of our time-warping, matter-dissolving journey through the Philadelphia Experiment mythos. As we power down the Varotron, I’d like to ask anyone who has ‘gone blank’ to remain calm, and stay put (as if you’ve got a choice); we’ll be coming around for the laying-of-hands soon. 1,991 more words

Explosions are generally where a chemical reaction gives off too much energy in a small amount of time. Everyday the sea probably radiates more energy than a nuclear reactor but because it is so slow and over such a large area it isn’t as noticeable an effect. 129 more words

Chemical Physics

Mother Lode

Next time you hold a piece of jewellery, it may be worth considering where the metal that made it came from.

The origin of many of the most precious elements on the periodic table, such as gold, silver and platinum, has perplexed scientists for more than six decades. 115 more words



Hyperphysics is an extensive resource for many subfields of physics. Topics usually include a brief introduction and thorough description, the basic relevant formulas, and links to related topics.


You know, you know...

Okay. I’m not a fan of those ‘you know you’re a triathlete when…’ memes. Or ‘you know you’re a runner’. Or a cyclist. In fact, I’m sure there’s a ‘you know you’re a nuclear physicist when…’ 178 more words


How radioactivity was studied
