Physics on the curriculum

Just been looking through my Physics world [1] article archive and came across this from August 2020 [2]. This is looking at how Physics is taught, the lack of recent discoveries included in the curriculum and how this could be linked to a lower interest in studying Physics further.

Particle Data Group

Just sent off for the latest report from the Particle Data Group [1], which has data on the various particles such as Quarks, Baryons, Leptons etc. Only sending for the shorter (286+ page one). Thank you to the Open University [2] Science forums for making me aware of this.

This is free and should be arriving within the next six to eight weeks apparently.

Should be really interesting to read, may also be useful for the Science study support group [4]

Update

My Particle databook has now arrived

Standard Cosmological Model

This was posted to Twitter earlier by Peter Coles [1]. Interesting blog post about the Cosmological model [2], a link to a paper on arXiv [3]. I have also started a discussion on discourse [4].

A few interesting ideas presented here. The nice thing about these papers is that you can then look at references and find a whole new set of papers go read through on related subjects. You sort of fall down the rabbit hole with this.

All we need now is a club similar to CoderDojo where we can get together and discuss. Would need to be open to ALL ages though. This is something that my Study Support group could do though.

Wormholes

I just found an interesting paper on arXiv about wormholes. While wormholes are still hypothetical,, this paper looks at how we can look for them, formation ,structure.

Feel free to discuss further on discourse. I will update this post if I create a thread on there. Otherwise I will start a thread on the Open University forums.

Muon g-2 experiment finds strong evidence for new physics

Just sharing this video posted by Fermilab to dioide.zone on Peertube. This is a really nice, beginner friendly explanation.

The first results from the Muon g-2 experiment hosted at Fermilab show fundamental particles called muons behaving in a way not predicted by the Standard Model of particle physics. Announced on April 7, 2021, these results confirm and strengthen the findings of an earlier experiment of the same name performed at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Combined, the two results show strong evidence that our best theoretical model of the subatomic world is incomplete. One potential explanation would be the existence of undiscovered particles or forces. This video explains what a muon is, how the Muon g-2 experiment works, and the significance of this result.

New Supercollider

Just had this from Symmetry Magazine [1], an article, discussing the plans for the new super collider [2]. Which will open up a whole new set of discoveries (well hopefully anyway). This could make a good discussion on Discourse [3] so I have added a new topic to discuss further [4]. If you are interested in studying physics then maybe try the Open University [5] or to learn more about the Large Hadron Collider see the CERN page on this [6].

Physics and cosmology videos

So day after xmas day and we have some rather nice, if not mind bending videos, on the world of Quantum physics etc.

Similar to what is on the PBS Space Time on you tube. But these are on Peertube. Produced by Fermilab on Physics, Astronomy, Cosmology etc.

Have fun
