Cool Physics!

“And We have not created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them in vain.”
[Sad Chapter 38 : Verse 28]

As my first post, I thought I share with you some mind-boggling physics. Enjoy! Hopefully I will continue to add more to this collection over the coming weeks. You are most welcome to contribute, simply comment.

Abdus Salam: The Dream of Symmetry

This new documentary on Dr Abdus Salam is looking great. I like the following quotes by Dr Salam:

You cannot escape knowledge; Science is knowledge.

Science is the common heritage of mankind.

 

 

From the website:

The movie presents the extraordinary figure of Abdus Salam, who not only was an outstanding scientist but also a generous humanitarian and a valuable person. His rich and busy life was an endless quest for symmetry, that he pursued in the universe of physical laws and in the world of human beings. Continue reading

The Speed of Light (Updated)

The CERN Scientists’ mind-boggling revelation on the possible faster than light neutrinos has stunned the world. If this finding holds to replication and peer-review then it would change our view of physics. We are at the brink of something new. For many years young scientists were distraught at the lack of revolutionary progress in physics. Many of my friends who undertook physics degrees eventually ended up in biology, computer science and banking. Maybe this is the discovery needed for the new cohort of budding physicists who yearn to see the new Golden Age of physics.

I found this video of Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih IV(ru) on his views about the speed of light.  It is from Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya UK Majlis Irfan of 14 December 1997. This video is most insightful and tells us about the foresight and depth of knowledge of Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih IV(ru).
