Yet, our Universe is thought to be flat and without a special topology that would seem to imply infinity. Many concede that the Universe likely is infinite. How can science so readily concede that infinity is a real possibility when there is no evidence of infinity outside of math?

Here I'm speaking of infinity of space and time and not some situation where the...

We start with a simple laboratory (lab) reference frame, and let it be inertial for now. We put a treadmill device at rest on the floor of the lab, and then turn on the treadmill so that the belt is moving horizontally at constant speed, parallel with the floor of...

Pure SR, Relativistic Mass, and its Gravity?]]>

So I want each of the 4 points to be moving in space, the 4 points are the corners of block. Say the 4 points are moving northward, and the block is not rotating. Any ideas?

It's a big deal because it makes it possible to cook almost anything to an exact temperature and hold it there for fairly long period of time (1-2 hours). If you want a steak medium rare, for example, set the sous vide unit to ~132°. The steak will be medium...

A medium size tree is about 10 meters. 10 ^ - 2 is a child. 10 ^ -3 is the distance between your eyebrows. 10 ^ -4 is the size of your iris. 10^ -5 is a mite. 10 ^-6 is the diameter of a hair and about the smallest thing you could see with the naked eye.

You have to get down to 10 ^-10 before you are the size of an atom and you...

Terrence Howard is an actor who also happens to have his own cranky ideas about mathematics, including the idea that 1 multiplied by 1 should not equal 1 but rather 2. Yep, you read that right. Apparently he is one of those who, having never understood a particular subject, decides to re-invent it his own way, and of course, name it after himself, Terryology. That alone is 20 points on the crackpot index!

And for some unknown reason he is giving an address and...

How much is

As I see it, most of us have an intuitive sense of logic, and this has to be very useful throughout our lives and just about for every situation we can think of, including scientific activities. Given that, I came to wonder what more does formal logic

Any real examples of formal logic necessary for solving scientific problems?]]>

I wonder if someone who is good at LaTex could write a short tutorial of the basics, with some common SciForums examples? I'll write one up myself, but I'm a complete beginner at LaTex so it will take a little while.

In the meantime,...

I've read that when you get down near the Planck length then physics breaks down. Is that right?

But I would like to know what is actually going on in ' points' of space. So make it a question about what is going on in the smallest part of space that you can comment on, know something about.
