The Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft (DPG) with a tradition extending back to 1,845 is the largest physical society in the world with more than 61,000 members. The DPG sees itself as the forum and mouthpiece for physics and is a non-profit organisation that does not pursue financial interests. It supports the sharing of ideas and thoughts within the scientific community, fosters physics teaching and would also like to open a window to physics for all those with a healthy curiosity.

Albert Einstein taught us that space and time belong together to a common entity: space-time. This means that time becomes a dimension, similar to space, and has profound consequences for the nature of time. Most importantly it leads to what has been called the block universe, a universe in which all moments of time exist the same way together. The future, the present, and the past are the same, it is just our perception that suggests otherwise.

Elon Musk’s New Nuclear Rocket SHOCKS The Entire Space Industry!

Posted by in categories: education, Elon Musk, nuclear energy, satellites

Power is life, whether in the void or on another planet far from Earth.
Therefore, the use of nuclear energy and a constant, powerful supply of.
electricity has the potential to speed up, improve, and lower the cost of.
interplanetary travel.
The NASA-supported SpaceX nuclear rocket technology may be the way of.
the future for space travel. It might significantly shorten journey times to far
off locations, improve launch flexibility, and make astronaut safety.
throughout spaceflight. Additionally, it might reduce the likelihood of hostile.
attacks against satellites.
What is this space technology, and how does it work?
Join us as we explore how SpaceX’s insane new nuclear Starship shocked the.
entire space industry.

A database containing 800 million Chinese faces and vehicle license plates leaked

Posted by in categories: business, education, robotics/AI, sex, transportation

Millions of faces and car license plates were stored in a sizable Chinese database that was publicly accessible for months before it was silently removed in August.

A tech business called Xinai Electronics with headquarters in Hangzhou on China’s east coast is the owner of the disclosed data. In China, the firm creates systems for regulating entry for people and cars to workplaces, schools, construction sites, and parking lots. Its website boasts the use of facial recognition for a variety of uses beyond building access, including personnel management, such as payroll, monitoring employee attendance and performance, while its cloud-based vehicle license plate recognition system enables drivers to pay for parking in unattended garages that are managed by staff remotely.

Counting from left to right feels ‘natural,’ but new research shows our brains count faster from bottom to top

Posted by in categories: education, space

When asked to write the numbers from one to ten in a sequence, how do you order them? Horizontally? Vertically? Left to right? Top to bottom? Would you place them randomly?

It has been often been assumed, and taught in schools in Western countries, that the “correct” ordering of numbers is from left to right (1, 2, 3, 4…) rather than right to left (10, 9, 8, 7…). The ordering of numbers along a horizontal dimension is known as a “mental number line” and describes an important way we represent number and quantity in space.

Studies show humans prefer to position to the right and smaller numbers to the left. People are usually faster and more accurate at comparing numbers when larger ones are to the right and smaller ones are to the left, and people with that disrupts their spatial processing also show similar disruptions in number processing.
