As a pioneer in the study of radioactivity, Madame Curie's achievements are widely known. From an early age, she displayed a strong thirst for knowledge and an exceptional capacity for learning. She received her bachelor's degree from Sorbonne University, and her master's and doctoral degrees from the University of Paris. She was proficient in several languages, including Polish, English, French, and German. In her scientific career, Madame Curie received numerous accolades. She won 10 prizes, 16 medals, and 107 honorary titles, and became a Nobel Laureate in both Physics and Chemistry. She remains the only female scientist to date who has won the Nobel Prize twice. However, Madame Curie never rested on her laurels or took all the credit for herself. In fact, she had very little interest in fame and fortune. When World War I broke out, she immediately offered to donate her medals to aid the war effort. However, fate was not kind to the great lady. One after another, her family and loved ones passed away, and she was attacked and vilified by the press and the public. In the face of repeated difficulties, she never gave up. Through a strong will and persistent belief, she devoted herself to scientific endeavors.
This episode is a free-form discussion about the topics and information presented by Marty in the UFO episodes, specifically focusing on the previous two episodes, 213 and 214, but also referencing some of the earlier UFO episodes as well.Do these complex rituals actually work? Or are they also a form of deception? Or, are they possibly Quant Suff of an actual science/technology of an earlier age? What is the nature of the things people call the "spirit" realm and the "supernatural"? Are these things accessible to science if it is advanced enough? What is the "simplest hypothesis" for the UFO phenomena?As usual, we have plenty of questions, and no answers.Brothers of the Serpent Episode 215If you cannot see the audio controls, your browser does not support the audio element
Aristotle's Categories,” writes Davidson College Professor of Philosophy, David Studtmann, “is a singularly important work of philosophy. It not only presents the backbone of Aristotle's own philosophical theorizing but has exerted an unparalleled influence on the systems of many of the greatest philosophers in the western tradition.” And freshman philosophy at Wyoming Catholic College begins by being thrown into the deep end as students jump into Aristotle's Categories. In that work, Aristotle outlines the framework needed to read and understand the works students will encounter later in their intellectual journey: The Physics, The Metaphysics, and The Nicomachean Ethics. Their guide to The Categories this semester is our guest this week, Dr. Michael Bolin, whose specialties are the works of St. Thomas Aquinas and Aristotle.
Dr Daniel Palanker is Professor of Opthamology at Stanford University. He has had many successful technologies spun off into companies or patents including those involving retinal prosthetics, optical imaging and spectroscopy, laser-tissue interactions, and retinal plasticity. Top 3 Takeaways "The [size] limitation for a retinal prosthesis is not in a fabrication side. The limitation is an interface with neurons" Allergan acquired Oculeve but then didn't do much with it seemingly because they already had a more profitable drug on the market "Stanford is industry-friendly, encouraging commercialization, basically making things practical and useful and in Berkeley it's a communist mentality" 1:15 "You've worked on a railroad. Do you want to talk about this a little bit?" 2:00 "I introduced you a little bit, but do you want to describe yourself and your role?" 3:00 "The retinal prosthesis is a very fascinating technology. What's the advantage of this versus something else?" 7:15 "Tell me about the progress of this technology. Where did it start and how far has it progressed in the many years since you've been working on it" 14:00 "It seems there's a curse, on these vision prosthetics companies and the SecondSight and actually Pixium also has stuttered a little bit in the last year or so. Do you want to comment?" 19:30 "You mentioned this sub 40 micron photo detector, do you see a potential for, getting down to the five and the three micron size of that you had mentioned?" 22:45 "Did you want to talk about TrueTear and Oculeve a little bit?" 24:00 "If you suspect [a company buying your tech and shelving it] were to happen the then would you would you go through with that sale or would you continue to develop it yourself?" 25:15 "I was reading you have 70 patents and seven platform technologies... Is this a Stanford thing? Do you have access to great talent or are the projects you're working on especially good at spinning off these companies?" 27:15 "Is there anything else that you're excited about? Any other crazy physics rules that you're gonna be breaking?" 33:00 "Is there anything that we didn't talk about that you wanted to mention?"

In this episode of Talk Nerdy, Cara is joined by physicist Dr. Walter E. Massey to talk about his long and distinguished career as the past head of the National Science Foundation, president and chairman of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, director of Argonne National Laboratory, and president of Morehouse College, among countless other titles. They also talk about his new book, "In the Eye of the Storm: My Time as Chairman of Bank of America During the Country's Worst Financial Crisis."
*Today we present the return of a classic show. Update: Bob and Cheryl Enyart are being treated in hospital for severe Covid 19 conditions. They love you guys and are praying for you and hope that you will pray for them and their seven wonderful sons and extended family. Before heading in, Bob reminded us, "God is good, all the time." Real Science Radio host Bob Enyart discusses the growing field of quantum biology with Brian, an information systems guy with one of the world's major institutions who earned a double-major in mechanical engineering and physics from Iowa State University. This engineer argues that some of the extraordinary abilities of biological organisms go beyond what seems possible from standard chemistry and physics. Quantum mechanics, astoundingly, enables the navigational abilities of the Arctic Tern to fly halfway around the globe and of Monarch butterflies to migrate from Canada to Mexico. The startling, often sub-atomic, quantum world of the two-slit experiment and of wave/particle duality, of quantum entanglement, superposition, coherence and quantum tunneling, has disrupted the already wildly complex field of biology. Evidence is mounting that the most bewildering abilities of living organisms come courtesy of the Designer using quantum effects to accomplish what otherwise would seem to be impossible! RSR's Quantum Thoughts: - 2018: Quantum Biology Pt. 1 (this program) - 2019: QB Pt. 2: Our seemingly impossible sense of smell - 2019: How Quantum Computers Do It: Finally, a Helpful Explanation - 2019: Google's Quantum Supremacy - 2019: Top Mathematicians: Ants & Bees, Mold & Amoebas - 2018: Coincidence or Determinism? Quantum theology and physics - 2015: An RSR preview show - 2020: Bob's draft paper rsr.org/wave-particle-duality-is-a-triality - 2021: Our very own RSR List of Quantum Rules (just below). * Jim Al-Khalili Reports on Quantum Biology: Even though the title doesn't mention it, this great embedded video is about quantum biology! (And whereas the video says Part 2 of 2, you don't need to find Part 1 and watch it because it's not about quantum biology.) It's great, except of course for the delusional necessary homage to Darwinism from 47:00 to the end. :) Update: In 2019 the two-slit experiment was conducted successfully with molecules of 2,000 atoms (Fein, et al., Nature Physics) weighing 25,000 to 40,000 AMU (atomic mass units)! Bob stated incorrectly in this 2018 program that to date, the largest molecule used was of 100 atoms. Actually, back in 2013 (Eibenberger, et al., arxiv.org) experimenters produced a quantum interference pattern using a synthetic carbon-based molecule of 810 atoms.RSR's own Quantum Rules DRAFT List: In January 2021 we posted this astounding list of all known quantum rules. So here are the directives which elementary particles obey... - Two electrons of the same energy in an atom must have opposite spin - When two electrons become entangled they must have opposite spin - Photons emitted, within nanoseconds of each other, from an electron going to ground state, are not entangled unless they are emitted in opposite directions - When there are no measurements the quantum wave state proceeds (per Schrödinger's equation) - Any measurement (observation, knowledge of, etc.) collapses the quantum wave state to a particle - A particle is most likely to materialize where the amplitude of it's wave is greatest - At which points in space particles will materialize is based on their probability waves (the probabilty of any particular outcome is the wave function squared) - A massless particle upon creation jumps instantly to the speed of light - Quarks, all of ⅓ or ⅔ +/- charge must always combine to form entities with zero or unit charge - Quarks, observed only as components of composite particles, have charges in thirds - Observed particles have electric charge of 0, +/-1, +/-2, etc.; never observed quarks - Particles cannot have fractional orbital angular momentum but only 0, ħ (h-bar), 2ħ, 3ħ, etc. - Leptons (electrons, etc.), nucleons, & quarks' spin angular momentum must be half-odd-integer ½ħ, etc. - Bosons (photons, etc.) and mesons have integral spin (i.e., in integers; pion = 0; photons, gluons = 1; etc.) - If a baryon decays the number of baryons must be conserved - A free neutron decays in minutes whereas it is stable within the nuclei of all the non-radioactive elements (otherwise eventually only hydrogen would exist because the strong nuclear force needs neutrons to overcome proton repulsion) - A proton can't decay because it is the lightest baryon (otherwise all elements would be unstable) - Waves have "allowed regions" based on conservation laws - If a baryon decays the electrical charge must be conserved - Virtual particles differ in mass but conserve the energy and momentum of their corresponding particle - Angular momentum must be quantized in magnitude - Angular momentum must be quantized in direction - Bosons can occupy the same quantum state - All particles decay (strong 10-23 s; e-m 10-16 s; weak 10-13 s) unless prevented by conservation laws - All known conservation laws: -- energy -- momentum -- angular momentum J, but orbital (integer ħ) and spin (half-integer ħ) can transfer back and forth --- orbital (bosons include photons, gluons, Higgs, conventional mesons, etc.) --- spin (fermions which include leptons, baryons & quarks, etc.) -- charge -- baryon number (i.e., quark number, in protons, neutrons, Lambdas, Sigmas, etc.) - Conservation laws that have exceptions (as in, "Do not divorce, except for sexual immorality" Mat. 19:9) -- lepton number (electrons, muons, taus, and their neutrinos, violated including in neutrino oscillation) -- lepton flavor conservation (neutrinos?) While Wikipedia has a list of QM equations, RSR posted the above because we've been unable to find a published list of all known quantum rules. If you know of such a list, or have any corrections or additions, please contact us at Bob@rsr.org. Thanks!
Physics is much more than measuring the acceleration of a dropped ball. Jamin Rager (‘13) works as a Senior Research Physicist working on quantum computing as a military contractor. After studying Physics and Math at Hillsdale, he has gone on to graduate school and shares about how he has had a successful career.
This is actually an extended episode that Shawn and I did a while back.

Every coach knows tackling is a key to winning games, but do you know the physics of football tackling? The two most basic functions of American football, at any level, are blocking and tackling. If you're coming up short at either job, you're probably not seeing a lot of success on that side of the ball. Tackling, much like every other aspect of the game, has evolved over the years. Players have gotten bigger, faster, and stronger. The game has opened up in regards to playing behind a row of blockers, to getting the ball in open space. In today's episode, we're going to discuss the fundamentals of tackling, and some drills that you can use to better prepare your athletes to make all types of tackles, whether it be open field or round the edge of the OL trying to hit a sideline.

“As an administrator for 15 years, I still tried to do science and it was difficult because being a dean, every day there is a problem. Every day you have to solve some personal issues, so it's difficult to concentrate and what I would do was, whenever there was an opportunity to go to a conference away from the university, particularly in a different country, I would sit in the conference room listening to these lectures. You know how it is with meetings, maybe 10% of the speakers are exciting and interesting. What I found is even when I was not listening because I was in this atmosphere of people talking about physics, my mind was set free and would just start percolating. And all of a sudden ideas would come completely unrelated to what the speaker was talking about, except that they were scientific ideas. And I would jot them down and I found that this was really quite an interesting process because it was kind of an immersion process where you actually are not concentrating on what is exactly in front of you, but it puts you in this mood. The brain turns on a different lode and I think by association other ideas come up.”Pierre Sokolsky is Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Physics and Astronomy and Dean Emeritus of the College of Science at the University of Utah.

Dr. Steve Koonin, Obama's appointee as Undersecretary for Science at the U.S. Department of Energy, joins Jacki to discuss his new book, Unsettled: What Climate Science Tells Us, What It Doesn't, and Why It Matters. Koonin dispels fear with facts as he reviews the most current climate science to show that the future is far better than the prevailing narrative suggests. With more than 200 peer-reviewed papers in relevant scientific disciplines, Dr. Koonin was a professor of theoretical physics and Caltech and now is a professor at New York University with appointments in the Department of Physics, Tandon School of Engineering, and the Stern Business School. If your friends or family are experiencing fear or anxiety about their climate future, this book is for them! Next, Jacki is joined by Brigham McCown, CEO of Alyeska Pipeline, supplying the U.S. west coast with the energy it needs to survive. McCown fact checks the false narratives of fringe media suggesting that climate change is creating challenges to pipelines, which could sink into the permafrost. Jacki and Brigham unpack the uninformed claims and give the true safety record of Alaska's famous pipeline which is soon to celebrate 45 years of safe operation. Pipelines are safe and green. Consider that trains transport hazardous materials safely about 99.997% of the time, and pipelines are about 50% safer than rail, with only a small fraction of the pollution by comparison. Mr. McCown is the former Acting Director of the Pipelines and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration and is a retired naval aviator. Then, Jacki is joined by Don Huffines, the businessman and former Texas State Senator who is running to unseat Texas Governor Greg Abbott. Huffines discusses the problems with ERCOT, the breakdown of the rule of law at our border – a problem for the entire country – and what leadership requires in times of uncertainty, such as when a virus strikes, and a governor must show the proper respect for both public health - and freedom. Texas shut down during the pandemic, unnecessarily devastating the oil patch and small business. Huffines has other ideas. We at The Jacki Daily Show are looking forward to watching this contest unfold! Our friends at Glenn Beck's Mercury One rose to the occasion in Afghanistan, saving 5,100 desperate people who fled for their lives. If you would like to help, consider Mercury One which works to “liberate the captive, to free the enslaved, and to rescue, rebuild and restore the lives of Christians and other persecuted religious and ethnic minorities wherever and whenever they are in need.” Visit MercuryOne.org for more information. Finally, friend of The Jacki Daily Show, Barbara Denson, is nominated for a Reader's Choice Award for her children's book, Wind Blows. Check it out, and we recommend a vote for Barbara's book at https://www.tckpublishing.com/2021-readers-choice-voting-page/ (page 11) Good luck, Barbara!
This is the second episode in the two part series of episodes titled "A History of Unlikely Coincidences" by Marty Garza. We recorded both of these in one sitting, reading through Marty's prepared material(which will hopefully become a book at some point) and discussing.By the time we finished with this episode all of us were too tired to record more, so there will be follow up to discuss these topics more at some point in the future.In this episode we continue from where we left off in the last episode with Jack Parsons, and continue forward discussing L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology, the Collins Elite, the Philip Experiment, and much more.Brothers of the Serpent Episode 214If you cannot see the audio controls, your browser does not support the audio element
What most people know about black holes, they've learned from sci-fi. In this genre, black holes (spacetime where gravity is so strong that nothing can escape) can often do some nifty things, like time travel. In real life, however, black holes are a whole lot more interesting. A compact mass of deformed spacetime with zero volume and infinite density?

Fuck Texas, the new abortion ban is not about protecting fetuses. Abortion bans are a way to control women, specifically lower income women. Because, rich so-called “pro-life” individuals will always have access to safe abortions. The GoodA Beekeeper in France has invented a trap that can stop Murder Hornets.

Yay?Although Black Holes have an enormous effect on any object crossing it's path, it has no locally detectable features. In theory, you could be standing right next to one and not realize it. If you did observe it, you'd notice that clocks near it would seem to move slower, because time is literally going slower in a Black Hole. This might be a good way to travel forward in time, however, once you enter it, you can never leave it. No one will hear you scream either, because information cannot escape a black hole….Listen now to learn about Black Holes, more interesting than a science fiction movie.For more information on us, visit our website at betterthanhumanpodcast.comFollow us on Twitter @betterthanhuma1on Facebook @betterthanhumanpodcaston Instagram @betterthanhumanpodcasthttps://www.tiktok.com/@betterthanhumanpodcastor Email us at email@example.comWe look forward to hearing from you, and we look forward to you joining our cult of weirdness!#betterthanhuman #cultofweirdnes
In 2006 Clint Paddison was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and within two years could barely walk with pain crippling 80% of his body. After surgery and medications failed him, Clint went back to his science roots which in 2000 saw him gain 1st Class honours, The Macquarie Foundation Science Prize, Australian Institute of Physics prize (NSW Branch) and Semi-Finalist for Young Australian of the Year. With bulldog determination, persistence and scientific experimentation Clint turned his health around and now leads a life drug free and pain free. With the drugs behind him, he's now a proud father of daughters Angelina and Arielle and loving husband to gorgeous Melissa. After recovering from RA, Clint has told his story on US television, given a TEDx talk, written for 'Arthritis Matters' magazine, featured in 'Body, Mind and Soul' magazine and appeared as a keynote speaker at most of the biggest natural heath conferences in Australia. Clint is author of the bestselling Program ‘The Paddison Program for Rheumatoid Arthritis' which has sold in 60 countries and has dramatically improved the lives of thousands of people with inflammatory arthritic conditions.

Continuing on The Phenomenology of Spirit, ch. 3, "Force and the Understanding." We start off by considering the players in force: the thing exerting the force and the thing receiving. By arguing that these are not so different, Hegel moves to arguing that knowledge and the world are likewise not sharply distinguished.

Play a space game requiring super technical, minor adjustments to thrust vectors and yaw? More like YAWN, amirite? In 288, we're playing Activision's (squee!) 1983 space shuttle simulator SPACE SHUTTLE: A JOURNEY INTO SPACE. Instead of, we suppose, a journey into the local supermarket. The game is a technical marvel. But is it fun? Is it really even a game? Let's discuss.

We're only two weeks away from starting our new season, with all new episodes, on September 17! We're putting the finishing touches on the first episode as we speak, and we can't wait to share it with you. But for now, enjoy one of our most favorite episodes about what everything in the universe is made of. What are protons, neutrons, and electrons made out of? That's what listener Xander wants to know. Physics expert Aatish Bhatia takes us on a journey into the atom, and explains how scientists discover things that are too small to see. You'll find out how Albert Einstein helped prove the existence of atoms, and why physicists smash particles like pinatas in massive tunnels.

The most groundbreaking ideas in modern physics—the Earth is round, special relativity, the uncertainty principle—were seen as shocking, impossible, even deviant (recall Galileo's trial). Even today, wild ideas can be laughed out of a conference, especially if they come from someone perceived as an outsider. Brown University physics professor Stephon Alexander, one such self-identified outsider, joins the podcast to talk about his new book, Fear of a Black Universe, and his own experiences as a Black man in science who has made major contributions, “not in spite of [his] outsider's perspective, but because of it.”Go beyond the episode:Stephon Alexander's Fear of a Black Universe: An Outsider's Guide to the Future of PhysicsRead an excerpt from his first book, The Jazz of PhysicsListen to the whole of Here Comes Now, Stephon Alexander's album with RiouxScience writer Priscilla Long explains what's so great about the Higgs bosonMedical doctor Robert Lanza steps out of his lane to propose “A New Theory of the Universe”Jethro K.

Without sand, engineering would be stuck in the Middle Ages. Wooden houses would line mud-packed streets, and Silicon Valley would be, well, just a valley. Sand is the building material of modern cities, and we use more of this resource than any other except water and air. Now we're running out of it. Hear why the Roman recipe for making concrete was lost until the 19th century, and about the super-secret mine in North Carolina that makes your smartphone possible. Plus, engineered sand turns stormwater into drinking water, and why you might think twice about running barefoot on some tropical beaches once you learn about their biological source. And, a special report from the coast of Louisiana where livelihoods and ecosystems depend on the successful release of Mississippi sand from levees into sediment-starved wetlands. Guests: Vince Beiser – Journalist and author of “The World in a Grain: The Story of Sand and How it Transformed Civilization” Joe Charbonnet – Science and policy associate at the Green Science Policy Institute in Berkeley, California Pupa Gilbert – Biophysicist and geobiologist, University of Wisconsin, Madison Rudy Simoneaux – Engineer manager, Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority, Baton Rouge, Louisiana Elizabeth Chamberlain – Post-doctoral researcher in Earth and Environmental Sciences, Vanderbilt University Originally aired January 14, 2019

Diyar Talbayev, Ph.D. is an associate professor at the Tulane School of Science and Engineering and an experienced condensed matter physicist. His current research involves the optical and electronic properties of complex materials. He has a keen interest in high-speed spectroscopy as well as solid state physics. Click on play to learn: How an electron is probed for research purposes. What role laser pulses play in the study of electrons. How the uncertainty principle affects current research on light interaction with matter. Research in the Femtosecond & Terahertz Spectroscopy Laboratory focuses on observing and identifying activities inside electrons. The studies encompass magnetism, electricity, insulators, and super conductivity, and possible uses in semi-conductor chips and magnet materials for the purpose of data storage. Researchers are gathering data on laser-pulse experiments to determine effects of electron behaviors. As light interacts with matter, it changes in a specific manner in which some colors are absorbed. By shining a stream of laser pulses on the surface of a material the changes can in colorization can be observed. Some colors are absorbed; some wavelengths are scattered. Dr. Talbayev is presently working on a research project titled “Optical super oscillations in time domain; ‘seeing' through opaque matter and wavelength conversion without nonlinearity. He is investigating the physics behind magnetism and how the interactions between electrons in a material establish its magnetic and electronic properties.
