Droplets dancing? Surface tension in action!

Physics Central posted a great video about how droplets dance, collide, move and repel each other in an awesome symphony of movements. Surface tension on the edge of those droplets makes them interact with each other in strange ways. Researchers Nate J Cira and Manu Prakash (Stanford) used water and propylene glycol to show that […]

Why LHC won’t destroy the world with black holes or strangelets [video]

Sixty Symbols shows us in the above video why the world won’t be destroyed by the experiments at LHC. Seeing how tiny the particles and the results are I can be sure that there won’t be any issue from those experiments. There are three main doomsday theories that involve LHC: black holes will eat up […]
