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

39 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."

"This is possibly the best documentary review of the events of the fateful day 9/11 2001 when the Trade Towers in New York were completely destroyed by what is believed to be a shocking terrorist attack.You cannot fail to be moved by this documentary and after more than a decade the message is still as poignant as ever and I personally remember the day in my Operations Centre workplace when I witnessed the events of this tragic day on a full video wall in front of all the operators…all calls were treated differently when the realisation of the immense loss was becoming realised.This documentary is one of many made surrounding the events of 9/11 and is an award winning documentary in it’s own right. The capture of the shocking footage of people having to throw themselves to their certain death will live with anyone seeing them forever.Any documentary about such personal and global tragedy will be upsetting and traumatic but they need to be shown so that we and our children do not forget how vulnerable we all are.We may wonder whether this was indeed a terrorist attack or some complex government conspiracy but the stark reality surrounds the tragic deaths of so many on this tragic day…if you wish to explore the search for the perpetrators of this then use this link."

For 13 years, Timothy Treadwell spent his summers on the peninsula of Alaska, living among the wild bears in the last five years, recording his life there. His winters were spent visiting elementary schools and making appearances on television, in an effort to educate people about the status of the animals he loved. This continued until October 5, 2003, when Treadwell and his girlfriend were attacked and killed by a bear.Using images of Treadwell, as well as interviews with friends, family and local authorities, the director Werner Herzog crafts a fascinating documentary about his favorite themes: obsession, madness, and man’s place in nature. Herzog, who plays an active role in the film, identifies with Treadwell, even though their world views are at opposite ends of the spectrum.Addressing the camera, Treadwell, who had no formal training with animals, he saw himself as a “kind warrior” who was there to protect the bears from poachers, developers and others who would do them harm. But others saw him as a deluded crackpot, suffering at least from a naivete about her role in the lives of bears. (When waxes poetic Treadwell on a pile of fresh bear dung, it is difficult not to agree with them) … (Barnes & Noble)

Are There More Than Three Dimensions?
Are There More Than Three Dimensions?

14 Views 0 Comments 43:07

For most of our history, we rested easy on the idea that there are three dimensions that have existed over time, length, width and height. Ah, the good old days. In the 20th century, Albert Einstein and Hermann Minkowski connected our comfortable three dimensions with a fourth time, the definition of special relativity with a space-time continuum.This type of work, but still does not explain a new theory called problem of quantum gravity, which arose around the same time of Minkowski and Einstein were working on their theories. Quantum mechanics has its own rules that contradict the concepts behind space-time continuum. Scientists try this incompatibility as the time for decades, discuss it, but actually does nothing.Although the increase in the theoretical dimensions began with Descartes in 1600, string theory in 1970 extended this idea as physicists tried to tie everything together in an elegant explanation of the universe. The variations of string theory requires the existence of eleven dimensions and a lot of universes, our universe forming three-dimensional membrane floating some higher dimensional donut. According to this theory, every point in space has six dimensions than wrapped in super-small flame geometries Calibio-Yau varieties.A string theory suggests that the reason why only three spatial dimensions is that all universes with higher dimensions got into a car accident and destroying cosmic each other, leaving our paltry three-dimensional membrane intact.

For many years, our place in the universe was the subject of theologians and philosophers, not scientists, but in 1960 a man changed all that.Dr. Frank Drake was one of the references in the new science of radio astronomy, when he did something that was not only revolutionary, but it could have cost him the race. He worked at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Virginia in Greenback, said one of his new radio telescopes 25 meters to a star called Tau Ceti twelve years Earth light, hoping for signs of extraterrestrial intelligence.Although Project Ozma was silent, which led to one of the most influential equations in the history of science – the Drake Equation – which examined the seven key elements necessary for ET intelligence exists, since the formation of stars the probable duration that a particular intelligent civilization can survive. When Frank and his colleagues entered the numbers, the equation suggested that there was a surprising 50,000 civilizations capable of communicating across the galaxy.However, in the 50 years of hearing that followed, not a single beep is heard from ET. This Drake and his followers wrong and no way of life out there able to communicate? Drake’s own calculations suggest that would have to analyze the radio spectrum of ten million stars to make contact. But what the equation and the search for life science has done isfocus on some of the other questions about life in the universe, biogenesis specifically, the development of multicellular life and the development of intelligence itself.The answers to these questions suggest that, far from being a one, life can not only be common in the universe, but once started will inevitably lead to intelligent life.To learn more about the influence of the equation, Campbell Dallas will travel around the world to meet scientists who have dedicated their lives to focus on its different aspects.

The final result is 60 episodes full five minutes.And in general, is a very strong release. Billed as TV’s look first of its kind in the nation, takes us through Dimbleby road, rail and foot as he undertakes his adventure, and looking to Russia undoubtedly gets a lot of stereotypes that can be used to view .At best, Russia is a fascinating piece, brilliant television documentary, discovering new things really interesting and a lot of individual stories. Dimbleby may not be the most obvious host, sometimes getting a little too much of himself in the mix rather than focusing on the nation that is there to teach, but generally does a commendable job.However, inevitably, is the nation of Russia itself is the main attraction here. And although you can not help feeling that this documentary only scratches the surface of the nation, is still a comprehensive introduction to the welcome and a country once mysterious.

The enemies of reason is a television documentary in two parts, written and presented by evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins. Is it rational that the dead can communicate with the living and give advice on how to live their lives? What about sticking pins into your body to free the flow of Chi energy and cure your illness?O bending spoons with his mind alone? Is that rational? Richard Dawkins does not think so, and feels it is their duty to report to the areas of belief that exist without scientific proof, however, manage to keep the nation under his spell. He will face the world’s leading proponents in their field of expertise, meet the victims who have used them and expose the history of movements – from the charlatans who have milked these practices to the experiments and tests have not produced conclusive results.Dawkins points out that some of the achievements of science and describes it as the release of most of the people of superstition and dogma. Picking up his superstition-reason distinction in the root of all evil? (While recycling some pictures of him), then says reason is facing an “epidemic of superstition” that “impoverishes our culture” and enter gurus who persuade us “to escape reality.” He calls this day in dangerous times. Return to the achievements of science, including the fact that, by extending the life expectancy of people, helping them to take more advantage of living.

This means that even lower levels of life, there is a deep consciousness or awareness that all things Bond. Published in 1973, The Secret Life of Plants was written by Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird. It is described as “a fascinating account of the physical relationships, emotional and spiritual between plants and man.” Basically, the theme of the book is the idea that plants can be sensitive, despite their lack of a nervous system and brain. This sensitivity is seen mainly through changes in the conductivity of the ground, as through a polygraph, as pioneered by Cleve Backster.The book also contains a summary of Goethe’s theory of the metamorphosis of plants. That said, this book is much more than just plants, but also delves deeply into topics such as aura, psychophysics, orgone, radionics, Kirlian photography, magnetism/ magnetotropism, bioelectrics, dowsing, and the history of science. It was the basis for the 1979 documentary of the same name, especially with a soundtrack recorded by Stevie Wonder.

Approximately 5 billion years and fewer than 333,000 times the mass of Earth, discovering the charming history of the sun, the heart of our solar system and the driving force of life on Earth. The Sun is by far the brightest object in the sky. It is so bright during the day its light drowns nearly everything else in space. The sun is so powerful that even from Earth, their light can damage eyesight. So never look at the Sun directly or through a telescope.The best time to appreciate the majesty of the sun from Earth during a solar eclipse occurs. Then the Moon passes in front of the Sun and so it disappears temporarily from the sky. Life on Earth depends entirely on the energy it receives from the sun. This energy is produced when hydrogen atoms fuse inside the Sun to form helium. The Sun consumes four million tons of hydrogen every second.Still, it’s so big that our sun has enough fuel to keep shining for another five billion years. The solar energy production is estimated at 386 billion, billion megawatts. So in 15 minutes the sun radiates as much energy as mankind consumes in all forms, for a whole year.

So finely that had led many to conclude that someone, or something, had to calibrate, a belief supported by more evidence that everything in our universe may stem from an extraordinarily elegant and beautiful design known as the Lie group E8 .While skeptics argue that these results are inconclusive and no evidence of a divine creator, and leading some physicists are proposing that this God is a foreign player that has created our world as the last game of SIM for your own amusement.

After a period of annual crops grindingly work in a small plot in Sari, it was decided to investigate how news of breeding plants that were not as labor intensive. Inspired by the ideas of Robert Hart and the will to make your dreams a reality, Ken Addy and his wife eventually settled in a field of 28 acres in Cornwall, which is exposed to the full force of the winds blowing from the southwest Atlantic.

Why are more likely to have a heart attack at eight in the morning or crash your car on the highway at two in the afternoon?You can take your medicine at the right time of day really save your life? And you wonder why teens do not get out of bed in the morning? The answers to these questions lie in the secret world of biological clock.The overall message of The Secret Life of her biological clock is that a large number of existing clocks in our bodies, and that we ignore at our peril. Being human, of course, is that we are ignoring them with something akin to joy naked.The chronobiologists took us through 24 hours of their own personal organizer to show how they have perfected an entire culture devoted entirely to working cocking a snook at our watches huge body.We adhere to the rigidity of working hours, when some of us are pre-programmed some larks and owls. We jumped in the car after dinner, when micro-sleep your body what you want.We work night shifts, when a large number of diseases are more frequent during the night by the effort (and between 2.00-04 am is when most people die). In summary, we have as an unhappy relationship with the normal time, as the White Rabbit.

This relatively obscure series (2002) is a real find. 7 one-hour episodes tell the story of all sea invertebrates (sponges, anemones, worms, mollusks, arthropods, jellyfish, starfish, etc …) over time and how we relate and in some cases depending of these seemingly humble creatures.Amazing video and computer graphics to clearly explain everything. The scope of the video is all over the world. This is documentary filmmaking at its best.It’s a shame that it is best known for its easy as good as (better than, in my humble opinion) of PBS / BBC documentary on the same topic.This is the evolution of life on earth, to explain the gradual changes in the anatomy (invertebrates to vertebrates, etc.).Interesting information, first class photography and graphics, and some of the strangest-looking creatures I’ve seen!After seeing this, you probably have a renewed and deeper understanding of what represents the animal kingdom.

All creatures of nature, the British novelist Graham Swift once wrote, are joined for the express purpose of nature. And this is illustrated with charming detail and sometimes dizzying nature of sex.Birds, bees, and even barnacles and naked mole rats are forced to join forces to reproduce and pass on their genes to the next generation. From the sea horse that fits into a hypnotic underwater ballet to the rodent who copulates until they literally drop dead, the nature of sex spreads around the world to illustrate how an astonishing diversity of life forms find their mates and conceive, raise and protect their young.This Web companion to the four-part series takes a close look at the primal instinct that causes animals to come together to pass on their genes to the next generation. We also examined how time can be key in the mating process, and the variety of contracts for sex not only create a new life, but the diversity in both animals and humans.

The Buddha. The history of Buddhism is the story of a man’s spiritual journey of enlightenment and the teachings and life forms that evolved from it. Siddhartha Gautama – Buddha. Finding the path to Enlightenment, Siddhartha was led by the pain of suffering and rebirth towards the path of enlightenment and became known as the Buddha or “Awakened One ‘.A life of luxury. Siddhartha Gautama was born around 580 BC in the village of Lumbini in Nepal. Born into a royal family, and his privileged life insulated him from the sufferings of life, suffering, such as illness, old age and death. The discovery of the cruel reality. One day, after growing up, marrying and having a child, Siddhartha left the royal enclosure where he lived. When he came, saw, each for the first time, an old man, a sick man and a corpse. This greatly annoyed him, and learned that the disease, age and death are the inevitable fate of human beings – a fate that no one could avoid.Becoming a holy man.

Human v2.0 is a new type of human, which scientists claim to be creating very soon. And it is foretold that this would be a consequence of computer intelligence equaling the immense power of the human brain by 2029.An invention of this kind is surely expected to revolutionize humanity, hypothetically making it possible for us to download our minds on computers resulting in the indefinite extension of our lives.On the other hand it can also turn out to be horrifyingly disastrous if destructive ultra intelligent machines arise. But whatever the consequences be, all scientists agree to the fact that sooner or later, but inevitably such a situation would arise.

"You've probably heard about the existence of water on Mars. But what does this actually mean? Is there a slight chance of unknown life on mars that lived million or even a billion years ago? This kind of possibility has fuelled man's quest to visit the Red Planet. Man's attempts to reach Mars have pushed technological boundaries past their limit and raised the prospect of establishing human colonies beyond our own planet.Horizon has explored how scientists believe the only way to truly understand Mars is to send people there. If and when we do, it will be the most challenging trip humanity has ever undertaken."
