Hi,
I''m a physicist whose interests include the routes of rental cars, the physics of falling objects, the science of Spandex and assorted antics in alliteration. Here''s a link that gives info about what other physicists do after they graduate...
http://www.spsnational.org/networking/hiddenphysicists.ppt
and a little about Spandex. If you know someone with a bachelor''s in physics now working in an interesting job in the real world, let me know.

I Love Physics - Dec 18 2003 11:29AM

My name is Karah Manning and I am currently
attending Florida State University.  Like I
said in the title, I love physics.  And
that, I believe, will get me through. :)

What I really want to know is what space is
made of. Now that we know it''s not a
complete vacuum...Well, what is it?  (And
please don''t tell me "vacuum fluctuations".  
It''s not descriptive enough and doesn''t tell
me what they''re doing there.)

String Theory is quite interesting to me.  I
think it grand if the entire universe is
fundamentally made up of tiny, vibrating all-
dimensional strings.  The Cosmic Symphony!

Another wild concept to me is Neutron
stars.  I would like to know all I can about
those.

Finally, my ultimate goal is to find a new
form of propulsion that would make space
travel practical for human beings (and
possibly their pets).

I have a little black toy poodle I love to
take on walks and that''s about it about me.

I am Charles, retired electronic engineer building my own solar cave house by myself in Charleston, West Virginia.
I don''t understand the government publications so I had to build experiments myself. These failures are very expensive.

I get Physics Today and occasionally find an unbelievable statement.  I am looking for the expert who can explain many things on my list.
First is the dark age problem. If the background radiation had to travel through the dark age it would never get to us.  So how can we see it?

Second problem is general relativity.
A student once said "One equation or another equation, they all look the same to me. I don''t understand even one."  Well I feel that way about the matrices of general relativity.  A(1,1) or B(3,3) , this says nothing about physics to me.

Many more, help!



an answer? - Feb 22 2004 9:08PM

If by 'the dark ages' you mean the time before the first stars were shining, then any radiation can still freely move through space since the universe is no longer a plasma.

If you mean before recombination, then the answer is that the CMBR was there but it was just not able to move very far before hitting an electron.  Once the universe became neutral, the radiation went on its merry way.

As for the GR stuff, I'm just learning myself.  I think it definitely helps to try to learn special relativity and mess around with it in the tensor form that scares everyone to get a better feel for what the symbols mean.  Once you get past a certain point, though, I think it's tough to keep track of the physical picture since it's so funky so things tend to be just very mathy.

Hello everyone,

My name is Patrick, and I am a third-year physics major at Penn State University.  I am involved in research regarding the multiplet assignments of scalar mesons, and also the identification of a scalar gluonium candidate in proton-antiproton annihilation data below the charmonium threshold.

I enjoy talking about many topics in physics and cosmology, but especially about current topics in high-energy physics research.  I hope to be able to join the discussions here and have a good time.

Have a splendid day!

Hi, my name is Nicole (obviously).  I am a third year undergrad at Lycoming College.  (Who?  It''s in the middle of Pennsylvania.)  I am a dual major in physics and astronomy.  Last summer I did radio astronomy at MIT''s Haystack Observatory and I''m looking for another research opportunity for this upcoming summer.  (Although my last REU was the coolest in Massachussetts, oh yeah!)  

Anyway, I listen to a variety of music the radio won''t play.  I am a recent student of Objectivism, and I love chocolate.  (No, none of those are related.)  At school, I''m SPS PR officer, and I work with freshmen academics for Residence Life.  At home (Staten Island, NY), I try that thing called relaxation...

So, I look forward to joining this community!  And doing my PR duty, check out my school''s SPS at http://www.lycoming.edu/astr-phy.  Thanks!

Hey everyone. I''m a senior at UGA, but only now getting serious and doing physics and astronomy.

Currently I am learning LaTeX typesetting and other computer aided typesetting for mathematical/physics.

Another interest I have is trying to compile a website of my own class notes to help others struggle less where I struggled. I find all of the textbooks I have used in college lack many things.

I love getting feedback on what books other physics/astronomy/mathematics students think are good.

Basically a Geek at heart (even have the tshirt to prove it). Love Star Trek, NASA, space, science,computers, and so much more.

Hit me up for chat.

Hello,

I am a physics student at Chico State along with Justin (who of course wrote a book instead of an intro, typical Justin).  I am his VP in our chapter of SPS.  We are typical nerds, and do lots of nerdy stuff.  But when I am not being a nerd I enjoy rock climbing/mountaineering, and backpacking. I also plan on continuing on to graduate school.

I am stoked that somebody put something together like the nucleus; it is very hard to find other phys students to get in contact with. I think this has great potential (which we will call: V(r) ) for us to exchange info.

Hey my name is Matt and I am an undergrad in physics at bowling green state university in ohio. I got into physics in seventh grade when I tried to do my science fair project on the special theory of relativity. Lets just say it didn''t work out too well. Ever since then I have been hooked. I don''t know what I will end up doing but I am looking into about everything I can get my self into. Right now I am enjoying being on the Electric Falcon Race team which is an indy style race car that runs on batteries. We race against other universities around the country. Other than that I am an avid SPSer, and enjoy doing just about anything outdoors.

Good luck to all you physics students out there-you''ll need it. And I hope to talk to some of you in the future.

Well, my name is Olga and lets see...

I am from St.Peterburg, Russia originaly,
but I have lived in K-Town TN for 10 years a
long time to be in the south (Trust Me).  I
am a junior at the University of Tennessee,
Knoxville, and I am a physics major and a
chemistry and religious studies minor.  Go
humanties. I am also the president of the
SPS at UT.  I have doen summer internships
at LBL in Berkeley, CA, and in CU Boulder
CO, boht places are real grat and I high
recommend the programs.  After I graduate
next May I want to attend gradauate school
and recieve a PhD in atomic physics, atom
trapping and laser cooling. Well enough
about school I think we all do physics here
so that is not going to surprise anyone...

So to make this more entertaining here are
some point that make me the totaly
nonphysics, physics major, here goes...
1. I was in a social sority for a year (yup
a sorostitute)
2. Although I love the wind chill factor in
my lab, I much prefer the outdoors.  I run
long distance races 10k-15k and participate
in triathalons, plus I love to ski (Skied
Aspen this year with 60inches of fresh
powder one day...best skiing of my life).
3. I love to do latin dancing, I used to
take classes and go dancing once a week, but
now no time :( Kudos to those of you who
love Salsa.

Well thats a quick sinopsis of me, physics
and non physics related.

Ciao,

Yeah, this is one of the major projects we've been working on here.  The problem is according to our calculations it will shoot the projectile at a greater velocity than we could possibly accomidate (and the rail gun will probably explode).  :)  But we're working furiously!

The light around the world thing sounds brilliant (excuse the pun).

I'm new to nucleus, but I'm happy to be here!  Looks like a lot of great information, and communication amongst physics-minded people, which is, of course, absolutely fantastic!

So hello, and thanks for making us all feel so welcome!

Hi, my name is Rachel. I'm not a physics major, just take classes recreationally. I really enjoy this site, and the scholarship search function is very useful.

Hi,

My name is Ajay Narayanan. I am chapter adviser at Green River Community College, Auburn, WA (south of Seattle) and also serve on the National Council from Zone 17. I have an abiding interest in astronomy and observe as often as weather and my teaching schedule permit me.

On the Astronomy Matters forum we have a thread going on the Galileoscope - its assembly, modification and use. Please join us and share your thoughts.
