Walkabout the Galaxy
Higgs boson pairs, photon pairs, antimatter, red asteroids
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
It's a tale of pairs and "self-coupling", which causes Top quark endless mirth, in this episode, with Higgs boson pairs, self-annihilating photon pairs producing antimatter (in an electron/positron pair), and a pair of oddly red asteroids. Tune in for another wide ranging episode, also featuring Olympic rants.
The Electromagnetic Field
A rolling, grassy field may look attractive, but after thirty minutes you're sneezing with itchy eyes and trying to keep the ants off your feet. For true relaxation, without the nuisance of sand, weeds, insects, and allergens, take a stroll in the electromagnetic field. While it whizzes by at the speed of light, you'll feel not the the slightest breeze and can bask in the warmth of energy density, choose the wavelength that best suits your needs. With options available from nanometers to kilometers, the electromagnetic field, I'm loving it (McDonalds).
