Editorial – Why we should keep young minds forever!

By Eva Salvador Balaguer. Published on 15 December 2016 in:
December 2016, Editorial, , ,

My name is Eva and I have been the chair of the European Physical Society (EPS) Young Minds (YM) project since last July. In 2010 I finished a degree in Computer Engineering and 3 years later I joined the Optics and Photonics Research Group of Castellón in Spain (GROC). Now I am doing my PhD at the University Jaume I in Castellón, and sometimes I wonder how a computer engineer can be the chair of a Committee engaging physics students in outreach. Here is a possible answer.

Passion for Knowledge

By Giorgio Benedek. Published on 15 December 2016 in:
Awards, December 2016, News, , ,

A knowledge-based society as fostered by the EU Lisbon Strategy plan actually requires a society-based knowledge, a knowledge with deep roots in the society. Scientific research is traditionally performed in hardly accessible academic institutions or in jealously protected industrial laboratories. There is a growing need for research activity to become a living part of society, to be perceived as a service bringing long-term benefits and a better quality of life.

LIGO Detected Primordial Black Holes?

By Teruaki Suyama. Published on 15 December 2016 in:
December 2016, , , , ,

In September 2015, gravitational waves (GWs) were detected for the first time by the LIGO detectors, the two laser interferometers in the United States. It was found that detected GWs originate from the coalescence of two black holes (BHs) in a binary, each weighing about 30 times the mass of the Sun (30 solar mass). Although there have been indirect observations of BHs in the X-ray binaries, their masses are at most 15 solar masses.

Physics for All – A project to carry physics into refugee sites

By Sara Schultz. Published on 15 December 2016 in:
December 2016, , , , ,

Physics for All is a project of the German Physical Society (DPG) and the Georg-August-University Göttingen (DE), funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The project is based on the idea that the phenomena of nature are universal. Playing with nature, doing physical experiments, are deep human needs, which do not require any language skills and are independent of any national, religious, age or gender boundaries.
