The Electric Field
Michael Faraday's vision of lines of constant force in space laid the foundation for the modern idea of the field of force. Electric fields of static charges; Gauss' law and the conservation of flux.
The Lorentz Transformation If the speed of light is to be the same for all inertial observers (as indicated by the Michelson-Morley experiment) the equations for time and space are not difficult to find. But what do they mean? They mean that the length of a meter stick, or the rate of ticking of a clock depends on who measure it.

Gallery of Auroras
Auroras are natural atmospheric phenomena created when the solar wind interacts with Earth's magnetosphere, which means that an increase in aurora activity indicates an increase in space weather. In this interactive slideshow from NOVA Online, see stunning images of auroral displays and learn about where and how auroras are formed.
What Causes the Gulf Stream?
Even with the waves lapping at their feet, few people consider ocean currents and their importance to global climate. Although the Gulf Stream cannot be seen flowing by off North America's East Coast, in Western Europe, the current's warming effect is undeniable. This video segment adapted from NOVA uses satellite imagery to illustrate the Gulf Stream's path and animations to explain how atmospheric phenomena cause it to move. Closed captioning included. Run time 01:51.
How to Free Up Space on your PC
Step 1: Free Up Some Space
If you want to speed up your PC, the first step is to go to your Start menu and find the System Tools, group under the Accessories heading. Click on Disk Cleanup.
Step 2: Defrag It
Return to System Tools and run your disk defragmenter. Over time the information on your computer becomes scattered. The Defragger will organize the info and your computer will spend less time searching.
Step 3: Bewar
Ask the Expert: Meteors
Ask the Astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson goes to the park to see if anyone has any questions. A boy in the park asks, “How fast does meteorite moves in space?” He explains that meteor moves through space and if you find it on the ground then it is a meteorite. Sometimes the speed is 10-15 miles per second. He then shows the children friction and explains how the atmosphere protects us from meteorites. Author(s):
What is a Meteor? Video answers the question: What is a Meteor? A meteorite is a natural object originating in outer space that survives an impact with the Earth's surface. While in space it is called a meteoroid. When it enters the atmosphere, impact pressure causes the body to heat up and emit light, thus forming a fireball, also known as a meteor or shooting star. Very bright meteorites are called fireballs. On very rare occasions meteorites hit t

Hubble Telescope: What It Has Shown Us
The Hubble Space Telescope was launched on 24 April, 1990. This tool, built as a collaboration between NASA and the European Space Agency, is one of humanity’s most important tools in discovering the Universe.
Since its start, it has shown us distant galaxies, nebulae, and has even
given us a clear idea of the Earth’s age. It has answered some of the
most lingering questions in astronomy, and is helping us discover
whether life exists outside our planet
