LOG#239. Higgspecial.

The 2012 found Higgs particle is special. The next generations of physicists and scientists, will likely build larger machines or colliders to study it precisely. The question is, of course, where is new physics, i.e., where is the new energy … Continue reading

LOG#238. Cosmostuff.

Cosmology is facing again some troubles. Some estimations of the Hubble parameter differ up to four standard deviations from the accepted value. Even when a few km/s/Mpc are not quite a huge difference, it turns than they can provide anomalies … Continue reading

LOG#237. GW music.

The spectrum of gravitational waves!!!!! Purely gravitational wave music! The blog post today will cover two topics from elementary viewpoints: falling into a non-rotating black hole and gravitational wave “music”, i.e., gravitational wave formulae! It is a hard equilibrium just … Continue reading

LOG#236. Exoplanets.

The Nobel Prize in Physics this year, 2019, was awared to Jim Peebles, Michel Mayor, Didier Queloz. The latter two men devoted their careers to the search of extrasolar planets, or exoplanets, for short. That is, the search of worlds … Continue reading

LOG#232. Is it relativistic?

Today or not today. That is the point. Today. How to know if a given particle or sytem is (special) relativistic? That is a tricky question, since the reality is…Everythin is (special) relativistic. The question would be when you can … Continue reading

LOG#226. Higgs vs. lambda.

Hi, there. Short post today! The dark energy mystery, a.k.a., the cosmological constant problem or why the observed vacuum energy is to tiny is a big problem with no consensus solution yet. The Standard Model Higgs potential can be written … Continue reading

LOG#224. Vis tenebris.

What is dark energy? Where does it come from? Is it constant? Is it a quantum field? Is it vacuum energy? Nobody knows what is the 70% of the Universe! In the beginning of Physics as Science, Aristotle himself introduced … Continue reading

LOG#221. Kepler+Cosmic speeds.

Hi, there! Today some Kepler third law stuff plus cosmic speed calculations and formulae. Cosmic speed sounds cool…But first… From High School, you surely calculated how fast is  A PLANET moving around the sun (or any star, indeed). To simplify … Continue reading

LOG#219. Stranger Planck things.

“(…)Suzie, what is the Planck constante value?(…)” Nice to see the quantum fundamental constant in any series, but only shallowly. The rest was awful Science, and I guess bad advisors (or even null advisors) where considered to the big scientific … Continue reading

LOG#218. Atomic elephants.

Have you ever asked yourself why there is no elephants or humans with atomic sizes? Have you ever asked why Earth is so big in comparison with atoms? Why nuclei are 10000 times smaller than atoms? I will be discussing … Continue reading
