Three Women in Science You Should Learn More About

Science has been a historically male-dominated field, but without the contributions of these three women, we wouldn't have today's knowledge of radioactivity, or have computers that work as well as they do (if at all), or understand the way the universe as a whole works. Discover the main contributions of each of these women in science here.

Falling Elevators: Movie Science Gone Mad

Action and thriller movies rake in the cash. Fine. It's an indication of a huge following. Sometimes, though, we can't help but think that some of the ideas handed by these movies are very unlikely, especially when science concepts come into play. Case in point: the villain cuts the cable and the poor elevator, with the protagonist trapped inside, plummets down the basement. Who wouldn't go frantic?

Atomic Space is Enormous...So Shouldn't I Be Invisible?

The vast atomic space between sub-atomic particles such as protons, neutrons and electrons, leaves one to logically conclude that all matter should be permeable and/or invisible rather than solid. Fortunately, science has found a logical answer to this question, enabling us to make sense out of the physical universe as we know it.

Cells and Batteries

An electrical battery is one or more electrochemical cells that convert stored chemical energy into electrical energy. Since the invention of the first battery n 1800 by alessandro volta and especially since the technically improved daniell cell in 1836. There are two types of batteries: primary batteries and secondary batteries, which are designed to be recharged and used multiple times.

Hunting For The God Particle

Sometime, in the course of next few weeks an elite group of scientists and engineers are going to assemble in a control room at the Large Hadron Collider, world’s largest particle accelerator. They will feed a series of directives into their computers that will split trillions of protons into two beams coruscating in opposite directions inside an oval tunnel, buried deep beneath the earth.
