  1. This Is An Awesome Opera/Dance Piece Filmed Inside CERN’s Large Hadron Collider

    You need some Deep Thought for this one.

    When you think of CERN's Large Hadron Collider you probably think of science, not opera or dancers in hardhats. But filmmaker and media artist Ruben Van Leer's Symmetry might change all that.

  3. Physics Students Say Getting Saved By The Flash Might Injure You More

    This is some Gwen Stacey bullshit all over again, man.

    Huh, who knew! Turns out that super-fast speeds are bad for you. I'm surprised DC Comics hasn't mined this for drama yet.

  4. Stephen Hawking Warns “God” Particle Could Kill Us All If Science Gets Enough Funding

    "Not if we kill God first!"—Philip Pullman [Citation needed]

    In his foreword for the new book Starmus: 5 Years of Man in Space, Stephen Hawking warns that the Higgs boson particle (also called the "God" particle, because monotheism) discovered by CERN scientists in 2012 and thought to give matter its mass, could destroy the Universe and "we wouldn't see it coming."

  6. The Speed of Light Might Actually Be Slower Than We Thought, Which Kind of Ruins Everything

    On the up side, it lowers the bar for faster-than-light travel, right?

    Thanks to Einstein, everyone knows that the speed of light in a vacuum is a constant (299,792,458 meters per second), and we use that speed to calculate distances in the vastness of space. But, light has had a bit of a lateness problem at times, which doesn't make a lot of sense if its speed is constant. Well, surprise! Light might actually be slower than we thought.

  7. Schrödinger’s Cat, Refuted Beautifully By A Singing Cat [VIDEO]

    Surely she has some thoughts on string theory, too?

    Sarah Donner has a set of pipes, a pack of cats, and a greater understanding of physics than I do. Why wasn't high school this engaging?

  9. Physics Students Explore Possibility of Gravity’s Space Debris Incident Becoming An Actual Problem

    Houston, we're boned.

    We all know that Gravity is a work of fiction and the Hubble telescope didn't really get hit with debris from a defunct satellite. As students from the University of Leister pointed out in a recent paper, though, there is a defunct satellite that could pose a threat to current real-life space missions: Envisat.

  10. Kittens Play With A Newton’s Cradle And Discover Physics, It’s A CuteScienceSplosion

    None of them belong to Schrödinger, don't worry.

    Cats meet science in this video clearly made with Geekosystem's audience in mind! Watch three kitties (named Panda, Pikachu, and Pavel, because this wasn't cute enough already) play around with a Newton's Cradle, and discover the wonders of physics. This transfers adorableness via internet like energy through a Cradle.
