January 31, 2:00 – 3:30 PM This webinar will introduce you to leaders from throughout the energy sector: learn about what they do, hear about their leadership journeys, find out what drives them and discuss how diversity will lead to a better performing energy system. Continue reading
A photon is a purely quantum mechanical object representing the smallest piece of energy (or quanta) for light. Every quantum particle is a packet of energy though, so how do we tell photons apart from electrons, quarks, and neutrinos?
Chemists will tell you that bonds contain energy. In an episode of SciShow Talk Show (link below), Derek from Veritasium says atoms are bonded because they LOSE energy. Continue reading
Scientists have JUST published this new observation. On January 4th, 2017 they detected the merger of two black holes 3 billion light-years away. Continue reading
