The Young Engines of Broadway

I recently saw a heart broken 75-year old man see his dream collapse around him in the midst of our nation’s recent epidemic. Playhouses and theaters around Manhattan are shuttering their windows and closing their doors as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many shows are uncertain when, if ever, they will be able toContinue reading “The Young Engines of Broadway”

A Black Hole: Not the void in my chest where my heart should be.

A recent paper published by astronomers from the European Southern Observatory, ESO, states astronomers have discovered a new black hole. The recently found stellar object is reportedly the closest to earth to be found and has given supporting evidence of many more black holes present throughout our universe.   Black holes are not a recently discoveredContinue reading “A Black Hole: Not the void in my chest where my heart should be.”

Chalk A Win Up For The James Webb Space Telescope

In the midst of the COVID-19 shutdowns, many things are uncertain during these turbulent times. The team at Northrop Grumman located in Redondo Beach, CA has begun limiting the number of people working on the James Webb Space Telescope testing procedures. Even with the reduction in personnel the James Webb Space Telescope just met aContinue reading “Chalk A Win Up For The James Webb Space Telescope”

Hypertritons Helping Uphold Physics and Explaining What is in the Core of Neutron Stars

No need to worry the laws of our universe are still holding up. Physics for the most part still seems to be accurate, which is good news for us all. Recent research, published by The STAR Collaboration, has found hypertritons to have the same mass as it’s opposite, the antihypertriton. This discovery has allowed aContinue reading “Hypertritons Helping Uphold Physics and Explaining What is in the Core of Neutron Stars”

Room Temperature Superconductivity Is Closer Than You Think

When Heike Kamerlingh Onnes discovered superconductivity he most likely had no idea what he was revealing. Superconductivity is an amazing phenomenon to witness. A typical demonstration involves a disk cooled using liquid nitrogen hovering over a track of magnets.  This demonstration always gathers a crowd at our Faraday Holiday Shows we put on at RutgersContinue reading “Room Temperature Superconductivity Is Closer Than You Think”

Fusion Energy Is Becoming Viable

I grew up in the 90’s, a time where the cartoon “The Jetsons,” promised us engineering which would provide our species sanctity over the pollution and destruction prior generations had done to the earth. The cartoon took place in 2062, we are 42 years away from the technology they promised, which is not out ofContinue reading “Fusion Energy Is Becoming Viable”
