This is my first stab at blogging, so be kind. Today, Iâm going to write about basic research (understanding patterns in the world around us) as opposed to applied research (setting out to solve sp…
Also, the picture is just hilarious! :-D
In the eighth part of the series of articles on the development of quantum physics, I tried to explain the Bohr model of the hydrogen atom (the “planetary model”) in plain terms. However, it isn’t overly challenging to understand some simple, but quite neat, mathematics behind it. Therefore, I’d like to introduce the interested reader to a different and probably more deepening view of the Bohr model.
This article is more mathematical and technical than the vast majority of my other ones. If you don’t like equations and stuff, you’ll presumably like to read some other articles of my blog first. Anyway, I’ll try to keep this article as simple as possible (and as you’ll notice, the mathematics isn’t that hard to comprehend)!
This is the first video on FQTQ’s new channel! Titled, “What is Sound,” we explore the nature of the very useful sense. Check it out and give us your thoughts!
15 years ago, on November 20, 1998, the first component of the International Space Station, Zarya, was launched. Now, over 35 other components have been added, making the ISS the largest structure ever to be assembled above the Earth. Humans have continuously occupied the orbiting outpost for the last 13 years. This infographic shows some fast facts about the station on its 15th birthday.

15 years ago today, the first component of the International Space Station was launched. (#ISS15)
Congratulations on this outstanding project!
Also, I strongly recommend marveling at the high-resolution version of the above picture!
Or watch a video of the assembly of the ISS from the launch of the first segment in 1998 to today and beyond.
