Hubble to Webb [JWST]

Here are some informations and videos, from Hubble to Webb. The "james webb space telescope" JWSTwill digg the deep space in infrared with an estonishing resolution. Should be launched around 2018. I guess we will have to wait  a lot, couple of years before getting Deep Infrared Stunning Images.



Here is 2 FAQ from NASA website:

  1. What are the main science goals of Webb?
    Webb has four mission science goals:
    • Search for the first galaxies or luminous objects that formed after the Big Bang.
    • Determine how galaxies evolved from their formation until the present.
    • Observe the formation of stars from the first stages to the formation of planetary systems.
    • Measure the physical and chemical properties of planetary systems and investigate the potential for life in those systems.
  2. How far will Webb look?
    One of the main goals of Webb is to detect some of the very first star formation in the Universe. This is thought to happen somewhere between redshift 15 and 30 (redshift explained in question 45). At those redshifts, the Universe was only one or two percent of its current age. The Universe is now 13.7 billion years old, and these redshifts correspond to 100 to 250 million years after the Big Bang. The light from the first galaxies has traveled for about 13.5 billion years, over a distance of 13.5 billion light-years.

HAWKING RADIATION [black hole]

Now you know about the quantum fluctuation. Imagine the quantum foam but at the horizon of a black hole: the 2 particles popping to existence from no-where cannot than annihilate themselves: one pass through the horizon (or pop to existence inside the black hole) and cannot escape and the other has no option to go alone, radiate.

SEE ATOM in 3D [gold atoms molecule]

A bit old as news but still impressive. They managed to reveal a tiny gold molecule of gold [nano scale]. We can directly see the atom structure, in 3D !!!

Each white dot are a Gold Atom

DARK MATTER & DARK ENERGY

Another nice video in my fav that I'm sharing to you. Lecture at Fermilab. Very good to understand the bases of the concept that we know and we're made of ONLY 4% of the Universe. Outstanding!!!





BISMUTH [Bi] element Crystal DIY

Bismuth element is one of the most fascinating soft metal element. If melted, when cooled down it solidify on beautiful Crystal Structures. I bought couple of gram of Bismuth from ebay. Still expensive. In this video below you can see a DIY to create your own Bismuth crystals. This guy had a big budget!

DIY | Single Slit + Pin Hole

I captured the Wave Nature of light!!!

Here are my first "ok to good" results of my DIY Single Slit Diffraction Experiment & Pin Hole Diffraction Experiment. Still noisy and polluted by my non-scientific equipments, but still really impressive and better that the other DIY on the web.

These experiments are well known and were created in the past to illustrate the fact that Photons have a Wave Nature easily noticeable when you reach a certain point for the Uncertainty Principle. What you're seeing here are basically photons (green laser) that are passing through a tight slit or tight hole, projected on a white cardboard. The shots below represent ~2 feets wide, this board was at ~8 feets from the slit/hole. In resume, the Uncertainty Principle is that there's a limitation for a system (quantum scale) to know precise position and precise momentum at the same time. When one is "increasing" in precision to know it, the other one falls in the "uncertainty". The principle is based on the Planck Lenght, the smallest values of all Lenght/Energy, nothing can be/go below it.

Further down more links [VIDEOS]!

I'll create a DIY video and possibly an Instructables step-by-step of these two fabulous DIY experiments. STAY TUNED !

I'll try for sure the Double Slit Interference Experiment. But I'll be sure that I can use 2 slits with a length that is not "alone" creating a diffraction pattern. What I notice throughout the web is that you can find a lot of banky DIY of the Double Slit Experiment: the problem in their tests is that they used 2 slit too narrow already, taking only one of their slit and you'll get diffraction anyway. To reproduce a more pure result, I think, we have to create the Double Slit Experiment with 2 slits that each one, alone, doesn't create interferences.

Multiverse: One Universe or Many?

If you ask me, I will admit that I'm a believer. I believe in the many possibilities of different universes governed by different laws. Just make sens. We have to stop (human) to centralize the environment toward us. Earth was the center of the world, after that it was the sun, than our planetary system, than our galaxy, each time we discover similar structure above the current known.

Brian Green brought and continue to reach the general audience with important concept. Science Festival is a reallllllly relevant sharing platform. Love him, love sharing!

He invited an outstanding panel, somites that debate of Multiverse concept.

GRASP the GRAVITY

Everyone knows what is gravity: attracting things equally. If a feather is falling in less time than a pool ball is just because air friction. But, is it well engraved in your mind, in your brain. Do you really grasp the fact that everything, no matter mass they have will "fall" at the same speed. WATCH THIS ONE, now you will "get" it properly. Thx mista Brian Cox !

Your MASS NOT from HIGGS BOSON!

For the casual science audience (as me), we've faced the fact that we understand 2 ways that things is getting their mass. On one side we all know now that the mass is in fact interaction through the HIGGS FIELD. A video with the "best" analogy found by scientist so far:


On the other hand, there's the quantum fluctuation, the vacuum that is apparently responsible of the principal mass. What, not Higgs field ?


Finally, got confused. Decided to write to Derek Leinweber directly to get precisions. Obviously watching 2 differents videos is not the best way to learn. Dho! Here its answer:


The quarks and electrons do get their mass from the Higgs field, but the small mass of the three quarks composing the proton contrasts the mass of the proton by two orders of magnitude.  The mass of the proton comes from the gluon field.
Best wishes, 
Derek

So, now you know.
Tell it to your friends!



Empty space is NOT EMPTY

If you don't know yet, I'm sorry to tell you that, but Nothing doesn't exist, huh! In fact Nothing is something. Not just lexically for its meaning but in real, nothing is full of something. Vacuum is energy boiling, there's always something. Crazy!

NEW PARTICLE ? the AXION

Wait a minute, it's not yet discovered, but, theory about new stuff is always welcome here =P

>> Photons under strong magnetic field, could change flavor to Axions, that can pass through solid, than converting back to Potons. Why not !

ATOM | Wave-particles duality

Nice Article to read >> 
Article snap:
 " Does a massive quantum particle – such as an atom – in a double-slit experiment behave differently depending on when it is observed? John Wheeler's famous "delayed choice" Gedankenexperiment asked this question in 1978, and the answer has now been experimentally realized with massive particles for the first time. The result demonstrates that it does not make sense to decide whether a massive particle can be described by its wave or particle behaviour until a measurement has been made. The techniques used could have practical applications for future physics research, and perhaps for information theory."


Truscott quote: 
"I can't prove that isn't what occurs," says Truscott, "But 99.999% of physicists would say that the measurement – i.e. whether the beamsplitter is in or out – brings the observable into reality, and at that point the particle decides whether to be a wave or a particle."

DELAYED CHOICE QUANTUM experiment

Not just entangled, but change their past based on present recording, or if you want to see this result in other way: light can know which path that will take before doing it travel!!!!
Outstanding !!!


QUOTE from the video creator:
This video attempts to simplify the delayed choice quantum eraser experiment and share the shocking implications. i would also like to thank Physicists Bruce Rosenblum and Fred Kuttner for reviewing this video. I did not mention them in the video because they didn't get back to me until the after the video was complete and uploaded.

THE FLOW | DNA to planck lenght

Here is a very nice Artistic View of the quantum and beyond. I really like how all stuff are moving, jiggling. It's well done with the compositing seriously, hard work. Bravo !

VISIT and Watch the movie!

QUOTE:
The Flow
The evolutionary play of quarks and electrons resulted in nuclei and atoms. The computational outburst of atoms resulted into molecules and star systems. The intricate relationships between molecules created the fascinating entities of DNA, proteins and membranes. The interplay of which created the many species of cells, which through an inherent need to reduce their entropy and ensure their propagation would congregate into organs and advanced interacting organisms. These organisms would grow interfaces that would mirror their predecessors, and in a game of survival of the fittest would evolve complex processing capabilities creating virtual worlds, artifacts and cultural codes.
