Physics: Featured Facts
Carbon Dating From The Skies
Physics / Radioactivity

Carbon dating the bones of an animal can pinpoint the time this animal died to within a few years. Determining the age of relatively recent fossils, those of plants and animals that lived tens of thousands of years ago, is not a guessing game but an exact science. By using carbon dating we can dete continue reading this fact

Your Own Personal Rainbow?
Physics / Atmospheric

Rainbow Ark Did you know that no two people ever see the very same rainbow? It's true. Rainbows are formed when light enters a water droplet, reflects once inside the droplet, and is reflected back to our eyes continue reading this fact

Why Does A Golf Ball Have Dimples?
Physics / Classical Mechanics

Golf Ball A golf ball can be driven great distances down the fairway. How is this possible? The answer to this question can be found by looking at the aerodynamic drag on a sphere without dimples (while it's fl continue reading this fact
