    Dr. William Sokeland, a heat transfer expert and retired professor (thermal engineering) from the University of Florida, has published a paper in the Journal of Earth Science and Engineering that proposes rapid ice melt events and ice age terminations, extreme weather events leading to mass die-offs, and even modern global warming can be traced to (or at least correlate well with) supernova impact events. The perspectives and conclusions of researchers who claim to have found strong correlations that could explain such wide-ranging geological phenomena as the causes of glacials/interglacials, modern temperatures, and mysterious large animal die-offs should at least be considered…while maintaining a healthy level of skepticism, of course. Discovery – if that is potentially what is occurring here – is worth a look. https://principia-scientific.org/does-su...

  • Is it possible for the earth to lose gravity and fall into space?

    Best answer: The word "fall" implies the existence of gravity. A stable orbit, like the Earth currently has around the Sun, is caused by gravity and momentum. In a sense we are already falling into the Sun, we just keep changing the direction of that fall. If the Sun's gravity magically disappeared, Earth would... show more
    Best answer: The word "fall" implies the existence of gravity.

    A stable orbit, like the Earth currently has around the Sun, is caused by gravity and momentum. In a sense we are already falling into the Sun, we just keep changing the direction of that fall. If the Sun's gravity magically disappeared, Earth would drift off into space at a constant velocity.

    If the Earth's gravity magically disappeared, everything on the surface would immediately drift off into space. The solid body of the planet would still have some forces holding it together for a while, but pieces would eventually break apart.

    As far as scientists understand gravity, it seems to be a universal law. That means it probably won't just disappear.

  • Help me! Looking for sensible answers to a stupid question!?

    Can someone PLEASE explain to me how planes do not fly off into space!? I'm not the sharpest tool In the box when it comes to physics and probably what some of you would describe as basic science! I just can't seem to get my head around how a plane flies at the same altitude for the majority of the flight,... show more
    Can someone PLEASE explain to me how planes do not fly off into space!? I'm not the sharpest tool In the box when it comes to physics and probably what some of you would describe as basic science! I just can't seem to get my head around how a plane flies at the same altitude for the majority of the flight, but doesn't veer off into space!? Surely the plane driver would have to adjust/steer the plane to ensure he is following the sphere? I'm so sorry if this sounds completely ridiculous. Please be nice. I appreciate this may start a debate with a vast amount of flat earth theorist. I categorically do NOT believe in the theory, I'm just seeking an answer to a question that baffles me. Thank you in advance!

  • I wish I'd studied. How to cram for a difficult physics exam in 15 minutes?

    Best answer: Go through the notes that you'd taken.
    If no notes, check the chapters that you'd studied.
    If no time for that, ask a friend.
    If no friends, then I'm out of ideas.

  • Time is relative standard an illusion, Einstein Can you prove time isReal,we will VOTE Evolution is Real,Send your evidence that Time Exist?

    Best answer: Time does not exist. A clock measures the passage of time the same way a ruler measures distance. Distance is not a physical thing and does not exist.

  • Why is 4th law of motion still denied - i want u "physicists" address this NOW?

    4th law of motion states that mass oscillating within 180° or less converts its centrifugal force into linear acceleration of the system. lets put it into practical example. if u were floating in space and u throw a steel ball in front of you, u will be pushed back with equal and opposite force. this part u... show more
    4th law of motion states that mass oscillating within 180° or less converts its centrifugal force into linear acceleration of the system. lets put it into practical example. if u were floating in space and u throw a steel ball in front of you, u will be pushed back with equal and opposite force. this part u understand. however, if u swing the same steel ball in front of u there is no reaction that will push u back but u will be pulled forward by the centrifugal force. this simple, self evident natural phenomena is still not understood by those who consider themselves 'scientists' (they are not) nor regular folk alike. how is something so simple still not understood is the greatest irony in the history of the universe. i hope to see u rise out of ur confusion and finally get this.

  • Physics - finding mass?

    In moving a standard computer mouse, a user applies a horizontal force of 5.00×10−2 N to accelerate the mouse at 0.600 m/s2. What is the mass of the mouse? Ignore forces like friction that oppose its motion.

  • E = m*c^2, does this equation apply to all kinds of matter?

    For example. Does 1 kg of Uranium produce the same amount of energy as Plutonium which is: E = m*c^2 = (1kg)(3×10^9) = 3×10^9 Joules.

  • If I carry an object 10 metres and then I take it back to where it was , my displacement is 0 , so is the work done equal to 0 too?

    Best answer: It required energy, but with no movement you did no work because it was not displaced by definition. I know it sounds fishy just based on our presumption of the term work it's confusing.
