Physics Games: Microscopes
Play a game and find out about a Nobel Prize awarded discovery or work! Zernike invented the phase-contrast microscope, Ruska developed the electron microscope, and Binnig and Rohrer invented the scanning tunneling microscope. All have been awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics. Here, you can learn more about these different microscopes and what the scientist studies with them. You can also try the techniques of Nobel Prize Laureates by yourself in our microscope simulators.

Hacia un Estudio del Protofen?meno Urbano: Rudimentos Anal?ticos para una Aproximaci?n Fenom?nica al
This work outlines the theoretical and methodological framework for the development of analytical rudiments contributing to the registry, cartography and quantification of the urban phenomenon understood not as urban space perception but rather, as human beings perception within urban space. It argues that this approach to urban studies is part of a scarcely explored lineage within the field of urban analysis. One that, much in the same way as the widely used topological/ structural approach, re

History of Boston Transportation
1630-1990

Fred Salvucci ponders the role of contingency in history, and in the evolution of Boston and its transportation system. He starts from the time the glaciers pulled back from Boston, leaving a soggy near-island and a river for the first white settlers to contend with. “The reason the city is here because

Scientific Ethics and the Signs of Voodoo Science
Until recently, the issue of research ethics had not been a subject of explicit discussion within the Physics community. Over the past ten years, however, documented cases of scientific fraud have brought this issue to center stage. We will explore, through case studies, some examples ranging from poor scientific practice to deliberate manipulation and fabrication of data.

The Physics of Startups - Shai Agassi (SAP AG)
Shai Agassi discusses his entrepreneurial journey from the enterprise software industry to his current work in clean energy. In the process, he describes the "physics of startups", drawing parallels between principles of business and the laws of physics. He emphasizes the importance of acting on an idea before it's adopted by the mainstream and navigating the inevitable uncertainties that can result in success or failure.
