| The Matter of Everything: How Curiosity, Physics, and Improbable Experiments Changed the World
Audio Signals with guest Dr. Suzie Sheehy on @ITSPmagazine

In this podcast episode, host Marco Ciappelli and guest Suzie Sheehy discuss the book "The Matter of Everything" which explores the #history of #physics through the lens of experimentalists and highlights the often-overlooked contributions of women in the field. They also touch on the topic of #diversity and #inclusion in #STEM and the importance of recognizing the biases and cultural legacies that have contributed to the underrepresentation of women in #science.

#Coffee in a goblet! Finding Toothless Coffee in #KL #Malaysia was not easy… but this #V60 of an Indonesian “Semendo Paranormal” was definitely a find.

Heavy on the natural notes, this coffee changed character significantly as it cooled, you could almost say that it “went beyond the range of normal experience”.

While a nice cafe, I’m not going to do a #cafephysics review of it on #BeanThinking - but what #physics - if any - do you see here?

The exterior of Toothless Coffee. A one story building with a yellow door opens straight onto a drain and a carpark. The blue sky gives an indication of how hot the day was while a multi-storey building behind emphasises the strange neighbourhood that this cafe is found in.
Foreground shows a black coffee in a clear glass goblet. The goblet is on a table with two Gieson coffee roasters behind it. The reflections of light on the table and on the coffee suggest that the windows of the cafe are to the right of the photograph.

I'm working on my concept of time. Dealing with time travel, I'd like to say I have a sophisticated grasp of the mechanics and paradoxes of time. Yeah. Above my pay grade, boss.

In my world where the present and the near future are connected by a physical gateway, a basic question is: If I do X in the present does X manifest, having always existed, in the future?

My answer so far is: Sometimes? Not exactly. We don't quite know, really.

Time is hard.

So, does the fact that there may exist a amother (simulated?) universe that is an exact copy of our universe, where there is abother version of me who is doing exactly what I am doing, mean that I don’t have free will? No, I am freely making all of my decisions, it is just that the decisions that I am making happen (quite unsurprisingly) to be the same as the ones that the “other me” is making. That does not make my (our) decisions free. #physics #philosophy #compsci

A proof that Laplace’s Demon is impossible in this universe: Assume that Laplace’s Demon exist. Then its mind must contain within itself a model of all the universe.

In my experience, the challenge in understanding quantum mechanics lies less in its fundamental nature being incomprehensible and more in having to identify and deal with all the perpetuated misconceptions that will pollute your knowledge and keep you from seeing the underlying patterns.

Anyone who is curious about it should first stay away from theoretical models and focus on fundamental principles that are continuously experimentally verified. There is a difference between observed truths and the stories we tell (or models we construct) to make sense of them, because the former is, ideally, indisputable while the latter can only ever approximate truth (as far as we can know). It is good to distinguish between these so as not to get confused about what we think and what we know from observation. What we think can change tomorrow; observational knowledge is much more reliable and transferrable as models and narratives come and go.

Fun #physics:

a) Every E&M student learns the "method of images". To find the field of a point charge near a conducting plane, you replace the conductor with an "image charge" that happens to nail the boundary conditions.

b) A charge near the CORNER of two half-planes has a lovely solution ... sometimes! If the corner angle is 90, 60, 45, 36, 30 etc you can start by placing two full-plane-like images and sort of iterate until you have a circle of them.

c) What about OTHER ANGLES? 1/

Hey #physics (#fusion) Fediverse,

I would like to inquire about some weird and potentially dubious claims of net energy producing nuclear fusion.

Some hype is going around an entity called Helion. I'm having trouble finding a good description of what exactly it is that they're hyping. All the sources that I have so far are full of red flags of the "this was written by a low-clue PR person" kind. This is often a sign of Theranos-like affair, but considering the high likelihood of such a distortionary process, the things that do seem like physics-side red flags might plausibly be just mistakes by the PR person, so I'm also not, at least so far, confident that it is a grift.

If you happen to understand what it is that Helion claims to do, or better yet, have a link to a good description, please share.

Born #onthisday in 1900, Wolfgang Ernst Pauli was an Austrian theoretical physicist and one of the pioneers of quantum physics.

In 1945, after having been nominated by Albert Einstein, Pauli received the Nobel Prize in Physics for his "decisive contribution through his discovery of a new law of Nature, the exclusion principle or Pauli principle". His discovery involved spin theory, which is the basis of a theory of the structure of matter.
