PULLMAN, Wash. – A Harvard physicist who has achieved success as a pioneer of interactive learning will conduct three workshops for faculty March 24-25 and present a talk at noon Friday, March 25, in Abelson 201 at Washington State University.
PULLMAN, Wash. – For the first time, scientists have observed ripples in the fabric of space-time called gravitational waves, arriving at the earth from a cataclysmic event in the distant universe. This confirms a major prediction of Albert Einstein’s 1915 general theory of relativity and opens an unprecedented new window onto the cosmos.
By Sabrina Zearott and Joanna Steward, College of Arts & Sciences PULLMAN, Wash. – The Washington State University flag has flown in many places around the world – from ESPN Game Day to the Great Wall of China – and now more than 18 miles into the stratosphere.
PULLMAN, Wash. – Starting Jan. 1, Washington State University Libraries will join an international publishing initiative of more than 1,000 libraries, library consortia and research organizations to provide open access to articles published in high-energy physics research.
Tuesday, Oct. 15, 4:10 p.m., Webster 17 Dr. Paula Heron, University of Washington. Please meet our guest speaker and share refreshments at 3:45 p.m. in the foyer on floor G above the lecture hall. Is “interactive teaching” sufficient to promote conceptual development in physics? Contact: Matthew McCluskey, firstname.lastname@example.org
Children learn some basic concepts of physics by using exhibits designed to also teach home energy efficiency. (Photo by Kathleen Ryan, WSU) PULLMAN, Wash. – An innovative collaborative project is teaching young people the basics of physics. Using simple models, an interdisciplinary team is simultaneously opening doors to more sustainable, energy-efficient homes. Project […]
Video – “Antimatter – harnessing the power of positrons” “This morning, NASA successfully launched the world’s first gamma ray shuttle to the galactic center of the Milky Way. Once there, geo-astronauts say they can mine and harvest enough raw antimatter to power Earth’s energy needs for the next decade. Unfortunately, they won’t be back for […]
