You will have the opportunity to design an independent research paper that is relevant to the course material, i.e., about the definition of life; the fundamental properties of life on Earth; the search for life in the Solar System and extrasolar planets; properties of the Earth; and search for live among the stars. This project… Continue reading You will have the opportunity to design an independent research paper that is re

What does it mean for a quantity to be conserved? Why are conserved physical quantities useful to physicists?  Give an example which illustrates the difference between three kinds of energy and the transformation of energy from one kind to another.   Your example may include some of the following kinetic, thermal, gravitational potential, and spring potential… Continue reading What does it mean for a quantity to be conserved?

1. Color Centers Color center are responsible for beautiful colors of some ancient artwork. Such color centers are observed in many other materials as well, table salt for example. The figure below shows an absorption coefficient, α, of table salt, also known as NaCl. The absorption feature related to the color centers is strongly peaked… Continue reading 1. Color Centers

Are we alone in the vast universe? This a very polemic question. Most of Scientist (Astronomers, Physicists, Biologists, etc.) state that no civilization has visited our planet. Nevertheless Prof. Abraham Loeb* has written a book describing the visit of an interstellar object called “Oumuamua” that passed 15,040,000 miles from Earth; it is opinion of Prof.… Continue reading Are we alone in the vast universe?

By burning fossil fuels we generate most of the energy needed to sustain our mod

By burning fossil fuels we generate most of the energy needed to sustain our modern life style. Scientists, in the other hand, consider that the use of fossil fuels for more than 100 years is responsible of the global warming. There are some key questions that we must answer: 1.           How are fossil fuels contributing with… Continue reading By burning fossil fuels we generate most of the energy needed to sustain our mod
