PRIME NUMBERS WILL ROCK YOU
Brian May used a sequence of sound lengths based on prime numbers for the intervals in between the stomping and clapping of We Will Rock You, so that it “would not be any discernible ‘echo’”.
Primer numbers rule the universe. This is probably an understatement.
Cllick on the pick to go to Brian May’s site where he explains it all.

PRIME NUMBERS WILL ROCK YOU

Timing is everything

We published the enlighteningly simple video on the Higgs Boson only one day before the official announcement of CERN’s biggest breakthrough about this partcle, earlier this summer of 2012.

Results on the research continue growing stronger and getting closer and closer to a validation of the study.

What’s next, after understanding how matter acquires mass? Naturellement, we now need to explain how gravity pulls mass together.

Could the answer to this question be in the Wang particle?

Professor Charles Wang from Aberdeen University believes it is. Read on

The Higgs Boson explained extremely well with brilliant animation work. Why is the hadron collider running particle collisions 40 million times a second, 24 hours a day? This is why and why it is incredibly exciting. We are in a universe of possibilities.

Researchers at the University of Southern California‘s Viterbi School of Engineering have developed a BioTac, a robot appendage that can outperform humans in identifying a wide range of natural materials according to their textures, paving the way for advancements in prostheses, personal assistive robots, and consumer product testing. BioTac sensor is new type of tactile sensor built to mimic the human fingertip, using a newly designed algorithm to make decisions about how to explore the outside world by imitating human strategies. Capable of other human sensations, the sensor can also tell where and in which direction forces are applied to the fingertip and even the thermal properties of an object being touched.

Communication is mostly about imagining what is possible. Audiovisual remote communication via a wired or wireless device has always stirred people’s imagination. Check out this brilliant visual record of the history between film and videophones.

X-Ray, Optical, Infrared, and UV image of Arp 147 by NASA and co. 
Arp 147 is one of 200 images of galaxies that make up Halton Arp’s groundbreaking 1966 ‘Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies’. While nowadays the reasons for the ‘peculiar’ shape of the vast majority of these galaxies are understood, Arp 147 is one of the few examples from the Atlas that still does not have a name.
