Think I might have caught a cosmic ray air shower at work today. Running a Geiger counter which normally gives about 20 counts a minute for background here, but got a sudden burst of at least 20 counts in about 5 seconds. Other than that the rate was roughly normal. No strong sources nearby, no high voltage systems, did several minutes of counts either side of it which were completely normal. What do you reckon? #Physics #Astrophysics

After atoms, it's now the turn of molecules to form a Bose–Einstein condensate.

"Physicists have succeeded in cooling down molecules so much that hundreds of them lock in step, making a single gigantic quantum state. These systems could be used to explore exotic physics, such as by creating solid materials that can flow without resistance, or could form the basis of a new kind of quantum computer."

A good exception to Betteridge's Law: Einstein's 1905 paper on E=mc2. Its title: "Does the inertia of a body depend upon its energy content?"

Anyone on mathstodon got a better answer to this #physics question? I feel like somebody could do better than I did.

The ultimate remote IT service

After crisis in interstellar space, stream of Voyager 1 data resumes. Before its computer crashed, the venerable NASA probe may have entered mysterious new region beyond the Solar System.

British physicist Peter Higgs was born in 1929.

In 1964, Higgs proposed a theory explaining how particles acquire mass. This mechanism involves the interaction of particles with a field, now known as the Higgs field. The field has an associated particle (Higgs boson). The search for the Higgs boson became a major focus of particle physics experiments. In 2012, scientists at CERN's Large Hadron Collider announced the discovery of a new particle consistent with the Higgs boson.

By weaving popsicle sticks together in a specific pattern, there is a build up potential energy (stored energy) in the bent and twisted sticks. When released from one end, this stored potential energy is converted into kinetic energy (energy of motion) as the sticks rapidly unfurl & fly through the air in a chain reaction.

#OTD in 1919.

Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity is tested by Arthur Eddington and Andrew Claude de la Cherois Crommelin.

The Eddington experiment was organised by the astronomers Frank Watson Dyson & Arthur Stanley Eddington in 1919. The observations were of the total solar eclipse of 29 May 1919 and were carried out by two expeditions which aim was to measure the gravitational deflection of starlight passing near the Sun.

In 1919 Andrew Claude de la Cherois Crommelin went to Sobral, in Brazil, and measured the amount of deflection of light caused by the gravitational field of the Sun. The results from these observations were crucial in providing confirmation of the General Theory of Relativity, which Albert Einstein had proposed in 1916.

"We have found a strange foot-print on the shores of the unknown. We have devised profound theories, one after another, to account for its origins. At last, we have succeeded in reconstructing the creature that made the footprint. And lo! It is our own."

Student: "What is the unit of power?"

Me: "Is that a question or a statement?"

Awhile back I had some odd physics ideas but was having trouble finding user-friendly tools to try them out.

Somewhere along the way I stumbled across Principia, & while the base version wasn't capable of what I wanted to try, I appreciated it regardless for being a cool, user friendly physics toy.

Sometime maybe I'll try modifying it to try out my odd ideas. Give it a look if you're into digital toys!

I've never done so much and during this since university! Programming a game is a lot of maths!
