Canadian researchers from the University of British Columbia have created a method of applying metal coatings on the glass, which increases its ability to pass light at 10%. This opening brings us closer to a future in which there will be “smart” Windows, variable valve timing characteristics and the glass can be used as electronic devices.

Gravitational waves detected with help of a computer program by Sergei Klimenko

In the scientific world does not abate the euphoria about the discovery of gravitational waves. At the same time becomes aware of new details about the participation of Russian physicists in the international LIGO project: this research group from Moscow state University and Institute of applied physics RAS (Nizhny Novgorod).

Apart from them, a significant contribution was made by another person — Sergey Klimenko University of Florida USA. He is officially considered a co-author of the discovery, which will no doubt be awarded the Nobel prize. In the final scientific article has two links to his work (and one unpublished).

The discovery of gravitational waves and a new era of astronomy: comments by the Russian physicists

February 11, 2016 will go down in history. On this day there was one of the greatest scientific discoveries of the recent time is the discovery of gravitational waves, predicted almost a hundred years ago the General theory of relativity of albert Einstein. Ripples in the fabric of space-time that distorts space and time around himself, came to Earth and was first directly registered.

“We are opening a new era — the era of gravitational wave astronomy. This can be compared with the advent of the telescope, or astronomy. We have a new tool for the study of the Universe,” considers a participant in the LIGO project, the head of group “Coherent micro and believe that radio Photonics” Russian quantum center (RCC) Mikhail Gorodetsky.

In Kazakhstan coal find the egg with a huge worm inside

Original taken from senseisekai in Kazakhstan coal found a huge egg with a worm inside

Residents of the village of Baganaly Kasabasi district, Auliekol district found a strange creature that resembles a large gray worm when touched changes its color.


It is reported that stocks of coal imported in October 2015, was found an egg about the size of a loaf of bread and covered in a sticky, glue like, substance. Smashing the egg with the shovel, the stokers found it something like a worm with a length of about 20 centimeters.

[The sandbox] the Higgs boson (translated)

We, the staff Quantuz, (trying to join the GT community), we offer you our translation section of the site particleadventure.org dedicated to the Higgs boson. In this text, we excluded non-informative pictures (the full version, see the original). The material will be of interest to anyone interested in the latest achievements of applied physics.

Who lived in Siberia BC

History of Siberia in the view of the majority begins with the history of “Russian Siberia”, that is, since campaigns and the Cossacks of Yermak, but in Siberia and BC people lived. Scientists even believe Siberia is one of the main centers of anthropogenesis.
