    The Thread For Posting Interesting Science Discoveries

    I thought that we should have a thread in the off-topic section to subscribe to for interesting Science discoveries.

    The 7th Row of The Periodic Table is Completed!

    Post by stathmk on 2016-01-04, 16:45

    The 7th Row of The Periodic Table is Completed!:
     
    The elements 113, 115, 117, and 118 were discovered by scientists in Japan, Russia and America, and are the first to be added to the table since 2011. They were verified on Dec. 30:
    - http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/periodic-table-new-elements_568a346ae4b0b958f65c09b8
    - http://www.theverge.com/2016/1/4/10707100/elements-added-to-periodic-table-discovery-confirmed
    - http://www.theguardian.com/science/2016/jan/04/periodic-tables-seventh-row-finally-filled-as-four-new-elements-are-added?CMP=fb_us
    - Scroll down to the bottom of this article and there’s a decay diagram:
    http://www.riken.jp/en/pr/press/2015/20151231_1/
     
    My response commentary related to elements or subatomic particles:
     
    -If you have a scale model of an atom, the nucleus would be about the size of a decimal point.  The electrons would be a mile or 2 away.  I think that the scientist saying this is named Michio Kaku.  99.999% of an atom is empty unless it’s in a neutron star, quark star, or black hole.
    -The Higgs Boson (The God Particle) was originally called The Goddamn particle.  CERN is now looking for a more elusive particle.
    -Anti-matter is made of protons that are negatively charged & electrons that are positively charged.  I saw an article about a year ago that that there have been 100, 200, or 300 atoms of anti-hydrogen & anti-helium observed.  When matter & anti-matter collide, they obliterate each other.  There could be an entire theoretical periodic table of anti-matter.
    -More than 90% of the universe is dark matter & dark energy.  There may be an entire periodic table of dark matter that we haven’t discovered!?
    -We are not Muslims.  In about the year 700 or 800 in Arabia, it was believed that were 14 or 16 elements.  Arabs sometimes were blacksmiths or swordsmiths.  But they called it alchemy instead of chemistry.
    -Aluminum is an element taking up about 10% of the Earth’s crust, but “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not” said that it wasn’t discovered until the 1800s.
    -In The English translation of Genesis, Lott’s wife turns into a pillar of salt.  Salt is sodium chloride.  A woman is 98.9% carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, & phosphorus.  Sodium & chloride are part of the 1.1%.  She couldn’t have had a chemical reaction turning into salt.
    -Uranium eventually decays into lead.  It has a half-life of 4.5 or 4.6 billion years.  I saw an article than a particular chemist uses a uranium ore rock as a door stop.  Inhaling or eating uranium would cause effects about the same as inhaling or eating lead.
    -The Big Bang created radiation, hydrogen, & helium.  The first supernovas created elements up to lead.  The second generation of supernovas created elements from lead up to uranium, or to neptunium, or to plutonium.  Any elements heavier than plutonium have a shorter half-life.
    -This is weird.  On the topic of 4 elements, here’s “Prank caller or Mr $H!T for brains:” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_Mq6z6sOX4 I was looking for a shorter, briefer, funnier, Atheist Experience video of a different caller saying to Matt Dillahunty that The Bible proves that there are 4 elements.  The caller said that The Bible proves that there are 4 elements of time, space, matter, & energy because of Genesis 1:1.  He said, “In The Beginning (time), God (energy) created The Heavens (space) & Earth (matter).”  Then one of the hosts said that there are over 100 elements.  Then the caller said, “What?”  Then the hosts smiled saying, “Nobody is this stupid or this douchy.  You’re a troll.”  They hung up.

    And the third generation created jupiteronium and saturnonium

    For a split second there, I though that you'd mention The Sega Saturn or the canceled Sega Jupiter.  You can see the canceled Sega Neptune & canceled Sega Pluto on Youtube.

    New Mersenne Prime & New Planet

    Post by stathmk on 2016-01-29, 20:12

    In Computer Science or Mathematics news On January 18 or 19, a new Mersenne prime had been made public!  It’s over 22 million digits: http://primes.utm.edu/top20/page.php?id=3  I think it would be over 7,000 pages in Microsoft Word!
     
    In the news for January 20, a brown dwarf star or ninth planet may be found with 5,000 times the mass of Pluto: http://news.yahoo.com/ninth-planet-may-exist-solar-system-us-scientists-174753045.html  I read in Discover magazine about 5 years ago that scientists think that Neptune in the early solar system may have had gravity that slingshot a planet out of the visible solar system.  This may or may not be it.

    Am I supposed to recognize her?

    Am I supposed to recognize her?  What TV show, movie, or video game is she from?

    EDIT:  I had heard that there's a particular magazine issue with Taylor Swift & a watermark on the cover.  When you hold it up to a web cam she dances.  That's what this reminds me of.
