A Body In Motion…

…stays in motion,” Isaac Newton explains in his first law of motion. This is true of objects. It is also true of us. Recently, I received an email from a reader with this question: Did you know what your passion was when you started downsizing? What advice would you give to people that don’t know […]

Scientists discover more than 600 new periodic orbits of the famous three-body problem

The famous three-body problem can be traced back to Isaac Newton in 1680s. Studies on the three-body problem led to the discovery of the so-called sensitivity dependence of initial condition (SDIC) of chaotic dynamic systems. Today,Show More Summary

Scientists discover more than 600 new periodic orbits of the famous three body problem

The famous three-body problem can be traced back to Isaac Newton in 1680s, thereafter Lagrange, Euler, Poincare and so on. Studies on the three-body problem leaded to the discovery of the so-called sensitivity dependence of initial condition (SDIC) of chaotic dynamic system. Show More Summary

Scientists discover more than 600 new periodic orbits of the famous three body problem

(Science China Press) The famous three-body problem can be traced back to Isaac Newton in 1680s. In the 300 years since this three-body problem was first recognized, only three families of periodic orbits had been found, until 2013 when 11 new families of periodic orbits were discovered.

Direct and accurate measurements of electron densities of plasmas

Isaac Newton's discovery in the mid-1600s that white light consists of a spectrum of rainbow colors, and then in the early 1800s Joseph von Fraunhofer's observation of lines in the solar spectrum laid the foundations for modern day spectroscopy—the workhorse of astronomers analyzing the chemical compositions of plasmas that form the basis of stars and galaxies.

Einstein's Theory Passes A Massive Test

The most basic physical laws you've learned -- those drafted up by Isaac Newton in the 17th century -- don't work for everything. Once you try to applying them to really fast things moving nearly at the speed of light or things heavier than stars, they start to fall apart. Show More Summary

Almost Free Book Alert: The Hunt for Vulcan by Thomas Levenson

Tom Levenson is a professor, a teacher of journalism and science journalism, and an Einstein scholar. He also knows a thing or two about Isaac Newton. One of my favorite non fiction books of all time is Newton and the Counterfeiter: The Unknown Detective Career of the World’s Greatest Scientist. One of the reasons this…

Ending the Golden Age of Nothingness

Sir Isaac Newton once famously said, "If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants." Well, Ike knew a thing or two; for it is indubitable that he would never have had the necessary foundation of knowledge to whip up the law of universal gravitation without the works of Euclid or Copernicus before him.

Why It Took Scientists So Long to Figure Out Where Babies Come From

Until 1875, no one in the world knew where babies come from. Ordinary people didn’t know, and neither did the scientists who helped shape the modern world. Leonardo da Vinci didn’t know. Galileo didn’t know. Isaac Newton didn’t know. They...Show More Summary

Friday Book Review: "The One Device: The Secret History of the iPhone"

Isaac Newton's quote about standing on the shoulders of giants applies to science as well as technology. No technology arises in a vacuum, and every technology is in some sense a cannibalized hybrid of versions of it that came before. Show More Summary

Is Space an Abscence of Things or is It a Thing Itself? [Science Video]

Since the days of Ancient Greece, philosophers and scientists have been wondering: What is space? Is the absence of things… a thing? These questions continued to fascinate physicists in the modern era, leading Isaac Newton, Ernst Mach, and Albert Einstein to wonder about the true nature of the fabric of the cosmos.

Breaking Newton's Law: Intriguing oscillatory back-and-forth motion of a quantum particle

A ripe apple falling from a tree has inspired Sir Isaac Newton to formulate a theory that describes the motion of objects subject to a force. Newton's equations of motion tell us that a moving body keeps on moving on a straight line unless any disturbing force may change its path. Show More Summary
