I've been reading of the (surprising) fact we are uncertain on whether there is nuclear fission in the center of the Earth or not (yet we know so much detail on structures at the other end of the ...
In what environments can a dipolariton form? The article in Science in which it is introduced discusses it in the context of an optical cavity in a semiconductor. Can this quasiparticle occur ...
Is a nuclear bomb in some sense a bullet travelling at the speed of light, but along time rather than along space?
Apologies if this is a silly or perhaps obvious question, but $E=mc^2$ just looks so much like classical kinetic energy (except for the factor of 2). So I'm thinking of the to-be-fissioned-away ...
One often hears the phrase "most of nuclear physics is in the low energy regime of QCD, where strong coupling constant is large ...", with the following diagram being invoked: How does one know ...
I just saw G.I JOE - Retaliation. In the movie the bad guys (spoiler alert) Could this device cause more destruction than a nuclear weapon? If so, how?
