All week long I, Leon Sandcastle have been thinking "what will I post my first blog about?" I wondered if I could make it as interesting as some of the others I've already seen and for that I would need a unique, new, fantastical question--yes, fantastical. I still have not finally found my question but I think energy is a much more fun topic than thinking philosophically about physics and definitely not reading about it! That's probably the worst way to think and learn about such a complicated
I was wondering what I would do first this summer and of course, I looked to the masters of Summer vacation for inspiration: Phineas and Ferb. The two middle school brothers know how to enjoy summer more productively than I ever will and I thought I could reproduce their trip to the moon by building a space ship but first I thought I would need a rocket, a very strong rocket. Because I clearly don't know how to build a rocket I looked to Mythbusters and how i could make an inexpensive space ship
I was reading an article on 10 strange physics facts and a light went off. As I now know, according to the Double slit expirement particles of matter have both the characteristics of matter and of waves. During the expirement one electron has the ability to travel through one of the slits as matter predictably does, to travel through both slits initially and interfere with itself on the final side to form a diffraction pattern or the electron can punch out, grab its hat and jacket and decide to
I've been reading some of the seniors final blog posts in physics and I decided to be moved by the same wave. I didn't face any new challenges. I struggled to be consistent because I'm not the best at time or mental management. I lose track of relatively large amounts of time easily. Through the ups and downs I learned well from the master Fullerton. I too now am one master yet I feel slighted. ALL of the physics in star wars is fake... not fake but impossible in my lifetime so I learned what I
