In my AP Physics class we were required to create a mousetrap car that was able to roll 45 feet in order to obtain a 100 test grade. I was quite excited by this challenge, and created a car that rolled a total of 60 feet on the first test run, only taking a total of 3 hours to build! Here, I will be instructing you how to build a successful mousetrap car.
Black holes are awesome, we all know what they’re capable of, but how do black holes even impact us human beings on earth from deep space? Well for one, it could lead to the destruction of earth. If there were ever the chance of a physicist creating a tiny black hole in a lab, and lose control of it, it would essentially spaghettify everything and anything in its path and ultimately wipe out the entire human race and our planet.

Quantum mechanics can be a quite entangling subject. Such is the topic of quantum entanglement. As I was reading Brian Greene’s “The Fabric of the Cosmos” and encountered the idea of locality and nonlocality, I became quite intrigued but yet confused. Continue reading “Nonlocality – When Particles Can Affect One Another From Large Distances”
Although there are various problems in today’s society, a problem that itches the back of my and physicists’ minds continues to exist. The struggle to unify the theories of quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity is ever-growing. Continue reading “Unifying Quantum Mechanics and the Theory of Relativity”
Scientists have created a wormhole in a lab! Sadly, for us sci-fi geeks and nerds, it’s a magnetic wormhole, not a gravitational one. Quite fortunately it still has the same fundamentals of a wormhole and is awesome in its own way!
Happy Thanksgiving! In the United States, family gathers together to share what it is they are thankful for, and to spend time with one another. However, in space, astronauts don’t have the opportunity to meet and gather with their families – they are still required to work. Continue reading “Thanksgiving in Space”
Choosing a profession at the ripe age of sixteen can be quite daunting. With the knowledge that I had to choose a career path that could possibly affect my future in only a span of two years in the back of my mind, it made choosing a profession very intimidating. However, after some research and internal conflicts I had to overcome, I finally decided that I would happily dedicate my life to a career specializing in astronautical engineering. Continue reading “My Profession – An Astronautical Engineer”
Ever wondered if there may be another fundamental force of nature adding to the four already-known forces: gravity, electromagnetism, strong and weak nuclear forces? Luckily for you, physicists may have detected a boson that may lead to a fifth fundamental force of nature. Continue reading “What Exactly IS this Fifth Force?”
