Extractions: July 2, 2003 The Standard Model, as the generally accepted theory of modern particle physics, does not forbid the existence of quintuples of quarks. Physicists are now using powerful particle accelerators in an attempt to fuse a quark triplet and a quark doublet to a quark quintuplet. "One could say that, for the first time, a molecule of quarks was created," says particle physicist Frank Wilzcek of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston. "This is really a milestone in physics." To this date, the properties of the quarks remain a mystery. While all other forces in nature, such as gravitation or the attractive force created by electrical charge, decrease with increasing distance between the partners, the quarks' attractive force increases the further they are pulled apart from each other. This "strong attraction" of the quarks has as consequence that they cannot be isolated from each other. The three quarks in a proton may swirl around each other, however they are shackled to each other by invisible "springs" so that even the most gigantic forces are not enough to separate them. This is the reason why a single isolated quark has never been observed. The fusing of quark douplets and triplets to a pentaquark requires an enormous experimental effort. The Japanese scientists can claim to be "first". However, shortly after their success, researchers at the Jefferson Lab were also successful in creating the pentaquark which, as expected, is 5/3 times heavier than a proton. Armed with these new insights scientists hope to come to a better understanding of quark properties, and perhaps create even larger "quark molecules".

Extractions: 2002 Revised Edition The NRL Plasma Formulary has been the mini-Bible of plasma physicists for the past 20 years. It is an eclectic compilation of mathematical and scientific formulas, and contains physical parameters pertinent to a variety of plasma regimes, ranging from laboratory devices to astrophysical objects. The Formulary was originally developed at NRL by Dave Book (currently at the Naval Postgraduate School). His conscientiousness and perseverance have made the Formulary one of the most widely used `tomes' in plasma physics. The new custodian of the Formulary is Joe Huba. He is responsible for its maintenance and future revisions. Any questions, suggestions, comments, etc. can be directed to him via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) The NRL Plasma Formulary has been set in TeX by Dave Book, Todd Brun, and Robert Scott. The formulary and its components are available in Postscript, PDF, and TeX formats.
Extractions: Source University Of Toronto Date Print this page Email to friend University of Toronto physicists have developed a way to entangle photons which could ultimately lead to an extremely precise new measurement system. Photon Switch On Leading Edge Of More Powerful Computers Einstein In Need Of Update? Calculations Show The Speed Of Light Might Change related stories Related sections: Their study appears in the May 13 issue of the journal Nature. The findings could ultimately prove useful in developing ways to measure gravitational waves or the energy structure of atoms, and could also help in the development of "quantum computers." (Quantum computers work according to the principles of quantum mechanics, which describes atoms, photons, and other microscopic objects.) Previous studies have theorized that quantum computers using entangled photons could perform calculations far more quickly than current computers. "We know that today's computers are approaching limits of size and speed," says lead author and post-doctoral fellow Morgan Mitchell. "Quantum computing offers a possible way to move beyond that. Our research borrows some tricks from quantum computing and applies them to precision measurement."

The UnMuseum - Immanuel Velikovsky Looks at the theory put forth in his 1950s text Worlds in Collision, and geologists' and physicists' reactions to it. http://www.unmuseum.org/velikov.htm
Extractions: Venus in the Corner Pocket The Controversial Theories of Immanuel Velikovsky In 1950 a Russian-born psychiatrist named Immanuel Velikovsky authored a controversial book. Velikovsky was extremely knowledgeable in the texts of ancient peoples. Based on his interpretation of these texts, Velikovsky reached the conclusion that our solar system, with its nine planets, was not always the same as we see it today. The book, Worlds in Collision , asserted that around 3,500 years ago the planet Venus was somehow ejected from the planet Jupiter as a comet. Comet Venus then started wandering through the solar system. Its gravitational field pushed other planets out of their orbits or changed their rotation. Velikovsky attributed many of the disasters recorded in ancient times to this strange interaction the Earth had with Venus. Material that fell from Venus's comet tail into Earth's atmosphere caused the plagues visited upon Egypt as recorded in the Bible. "Plague is throughout the land. Blood is everywhere," cried the Egyptian Ipuwer. "Men shrink from tasting, human beings thirst after water..." According to Velikovsky's thinking, a fine rusty ferruginous dust from the comet's tail filtered down on the globe turning everything red. As Earth went deeper into the comet's tail the dust turned to small stones and a hail of gravel pelted the Earth: "...there was hail, and fire mingled in with hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation," the Bible reads.
