The future of electricity may be different than we imagined

September 24, 2015 We keep hearing all the time about the dire state our infrastructure is in here in America. Frequently numbers in the trillions of dollars are tossed around as our needed investmen. more »»

Will citizen science be the science of the future?

September 10, 2015 We live in a world of big data. We have now developed technology that can generate so much data, a single person could never review it in an entire lifetim. more »»

Outsmarting cancer

August 27, 2015 Believe it or not, we humans have known about cancer for a really long time. Cancer was described (though not by name) as early as 3000 BC by the ancient Egyptians. more »»

Will becoming greener kill jobs?

August 13, 2015 We hear this argument over and over again, going green is killing jobs and of course that we are doing it for no reason. more »»

Could the LHC be ready to change our understanding of physics?

July 30, 2015 The Large Hadron Collider is certainly one of mankind’s most impressive accomplishments. more »»

Why do we spend so much on school technology?

Mathematical chaos is orderly

February 19, 2015 Often times the words used to describe science give an incorrect impression of the science. more »»

The measurement of entropy

February 5, 2015 Perhaps one of the most important concepts in physics is entropy. Entropy of course spans beyond just physics to other sciences including biology and chemistry. more »»

Improving memory after onset of Alzheimer’s

January 21, 2015 Perhaps one of the most frightening diseases related to aging is Alzheimer’s. The discovery of Alzheimer’s disease is credited to Dr. Alois Alzheimer in 1906. Dr. more »»
