Physics: Featured Facts
X-Rays - Another Form of Light
Physics / Fundamentals

X-rays can be produced by a high-speed collision between an electron and a proton. A new form of radiation was discovered in 1895 by Wilhelm Roentgen, a German physicist. He called it X-radiation to denote its unknown nature. This mysterious radiation had the ability to pass through continue reading this fact

Sonic Boom
Physics / Atmospheric

They sound like thunder, but they're not. They're sonic booms, concentrated blasts of sound waves created as vehicles travel faster than the speed of sound. To understand how the booms are created, lo continue reading this fact

Quarks
Physics / Quantum Mechanics

Protons and Neutrons are made of Up and Down quarks Quarks are the most fundamental particles that we know of. Both protons and neutrons are made of quarks. We know quarks exist; we have experimental proof. However nobody has been able to isolate them; continue reading this fact
