Einstein’s Equation Of Life and Death
Einstein’s Equation Of Life and Death

41 Views 0 Comments 49:00

In the summer of 1939, Albert Einstein was on holiday in a small tourist town on the tip of Long Island. His quiet summer, however, was about to be destroyed by a visit from an old friend and colleague from his years in Berlin. The visitor was the physicist Leo Szilard. Einstein had been said they feared the Nazis could soon be in possession of a terrible new weapon and that something must be done. Szilard believed that recent scientific breakthroughs meant it was possible to convert mass into energy. And this could be used to make a bomb. If this happens, it would be a terrible realization of the law of nature Einstein had discovered some 34 years earlier. September 1905 was Einstein’s “miracle year”. While working as a patent clerk in the Swiss capital of Bern Einstein submitted a three-page supplement to the theory of relativity, published earlier this year. In these pages is derived from the most famous equation of all time, e = mc ², energy equals mass times the speed of light squared.The equation showed that mass and energy are related and which could, in theory, becomes the other. But because the speed of light squared is a number so large that means that even a small amount of mass could be a huge amount of energy. Since the discovery of radioactivity in the 19th century, scientists had realized that the atomic nucleus can contain a large amount of energy. Einstein’s revolutionary equation were shown for the first time, how much there was."

‘The Dark Lords of Hattusha’ recounts the history of the Hittite Empire, which lost 2500 years ago. The deciphering of their language enabled archaeologists to finally retrace this great lost civilization.Although belonging to the Bronze Age, the Hittites were forerunners of the Iron Age, developing the manufacture of iron artifacts from as early as the 20th century BCE. Hittite weapons were made from bronze; iron was so rare and precious that it was employed only as prestige goods. The Hittites were also famous for their skill in building and using chariots. These chariots gave them a military superiority as illustrated on a plate from Carchemish.The Hittites were an ancient Indo-European people, speaking a language of the Anatolian branch of the Indo-European language family. They were part of a larger movement of Indo-Europeans in the 30th century BCE and established a kingdom centered at Hattusha on the Central Anatolian plateau ca. the 18th century BCE. The Hittites used cuneiform letters. Archaeological expeditions have discovered entire sets of royal archives in cuneiform tablets, written either in Akkadian, the diplomatic language of the time, or in the various dialects of the Hittite confederation.This film thus takes the viewers back in time and opens the history of this once great empire.

There is something very strange happens in space – something that should not be possible. It’s as if large parts of the world are being ravaged by a huge and invisible celestial vacuum. Sasha Kaslinsky, the scientist who discovered the phenomenon, is understandably nervous: “We left very upset and nervous,” he says, “because this is not something we planned to find.”The accidental discovery of what is disturbing is called “dark flow” not only has implications for the fate of a large number of galaxies – it also means that a large number of scientists would have to find a new way of understanding the universe. Dark flow is the latest in a long series of events that have threatened to rewrite the textbooks. Do you announce a new era of understanding, or which simply means that everything we know about the universe is wrong?14 billion years there was nothing; then everything exploded into existence and the universe was born, but a new generation of cosmologists are challenging this theory. Cosmologists have built a replica of the universe through the use of equations, is called the standard model of cosmology and is the reason behind the Big Bang theory, however, this model is not in doubt. The theory of Professor Alan Guth challenges Big Bang, saying that the universe started small, allowing the temperature everywhere, even before large-scale expansion.Stars closer to the edge of a galaxy is moving as fast as the center. This cosmologists think that the gravity necessary galaxies, but the only way to get more serious was to create it. Astrophysicist Dan Bauer is hunting for dark matter half a mile in the dark plains of Minnesota in order to locate and record more effectively. The discovery that the universe is accelerating, suggests that a new force is capable of powering the universe. This force is called dark energy, and cosmologists have no idea what it is.The combination of the question of the standard model, inflation and the darkness has given way to a new theory called the dark flow. The nature of this theory could prove that our universe is not unique. The standard model of cosmology has endured much criticism, therefore, the stronger the theory, however, still could be completely wrong.

That’s where people diligently Census of Marine Life comes in.They are carefully measuring all aspects of ocean life, although it is difficult to see that they do in present circumstances no one would pretend that bit faster.

It has long been considered the most pressing issue of our history: Where did humans come from? Although life has existed for millions of years, only in the past century and a half we have begun to use science to explore the ancestral roots of our own species.The search for the ultimate answer has taken a series of twists and turns, with careers made and broken on the road. Ape to man is the story of the quest to find the origins of the human race – a quest that spanned more than 150 years of obsessive searching Searching for the origins of mankind is a history of bone and feature stories .It was in 1856 that the first bones of extinct human ancestor were encountered, discovered by a team of unskilled workers to excavate the limestone in Western Europe. The finding, to be known as Neanderthal Man, was seeing the light of day for the first time in more than 40,000 years.At that time, the concept of a previous human species was virtually unthinkable. However, only a few years later, the work of Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species first broached the subject of evolution, and by the end of the nineteenth century had become the hottest topic of the day.Adventurers had embarked on the search for the missing link, the only creature that represents the evolutionary leap from apes to humans. Ape to Man examines the major discoveries that have led to the understanding we have today, including theories that never gained full acceptance of his time, an elaborate hoax that confused the scientific community for years, and understanding short of the key elements that separate man from apes.

Every cosmologist and astronomer agrees: our universe is 13.7 billion years. Using cutting edge technology, scientists are now able to take a snapshot of the universe only a heartbeat after birth.Armed with hypersensitivity satellites, astronomers look back in time to the moment of creation, when all matter in the universe exploded into existence. This is where we discovered an unsolved mystery as old as time itself – if the universe was born, where did it come from? Meet leading scientists who have discovered what they believe that the origin of our universe, and a window in the time before time.Big Bang theory holds that the universe was once packed tightly in a small and incredibly dense space, known as a “singularity”. That is, until about 13.7 billion years, when a huge explosion of energy and the pressure began to give rise to entire worlds, galaxies and interstellar particles that form the universe as we know it today.However, what caused the big bang? The physicists are left scratching their heads to that question. Since the universe began in a level so small, the laws of relativity are not fully implemented. In contrast, quantum theory, which deals with the world outside the law and the very small strange, must also be convened.Successfully answering the question of what existed before the Big Bang would be necessary to close the gap between the worlds so far incompatible with each other, relativism and quantum mechanics. But even though the bridge has not yet been built, theories abound.“Our universe may have either come into existence or collided with another universe,” theoretical physicist Michio Kaku said scienceline.org. “Big Bangs happen all the time.”This is the fourth episode.

It is common theory that the universe began with the Big Bang 13.7 billion years.However, as you can only see as far as light has traveled in that time, it can actually make the edge of the universe. Could it be that the universe is infinite? Is there any way to find out what the shape of the universe really is? Can we find the edge, to discover what might lie beyond it, and maybe even discover a universe next to ours?With the exception of mathematicians and physicists, most people do not like infinity.

Your car can be 10 feet long, home is 2,000 square meters, the U.S. national debt is … Well, some things are more limited than others.But what about our universe? It’s great.
