Kapitza. he's the co-author of L.D. Landau in a few vital works. They labored jointly within the body of the so-called Nuclear Bomb undertaking. After the loss of life of L.D. Landau, I.M. Khalatnikov initiated the institution of the Institute for Theoretical Physics, named in honour of L.D. Landau, in the USSR Academy of Sciences. He headed this institute from the start as its Director. The institute inherited just about all traditions of the Landau clinical university and performed a well-known function within the improvement of theoretical physics. So, it is a tale approximately how the institute used to be created, the way it labored, and concerning the lifetime of the physicists within the "golden age" of the Soviet technological know-how. A separate bankruptcy is dedicated to today´s lifetime of the institute and the younger new release of physicists operating now in science.

It is an traditionally attention-grabbing e-book at the improvement of Soviet and Russian technology and offers the historical past of the Soviet nuclear bomb application within the chilly battle age. In struggle instances, Khalatnikov used to be a primary of the army employees of nuclear learn. He writes concerning the inner stipulations of Soviet society, the way in which of working of the Soviet gurus and methods for scientists to engage with them. It supplies many attention-grabbing insights into the advance of superconductivity and superfluidity. The booklet is written by way of the main skilled and most sensible proficient individual one of the few residing Russian scientists within the setting of Landau. Many tales of the ebook have been by no means released prior to and regarded as "top secret".

Jakten på tyngdlösheten och upptäckten av: Skapelsens nakna by Rolf Sjöström

By Rolf Sjöström

För första gången förklaras vad som ligger bakom och "driver" alla de fyra naturkrafterna; gravitationen, magnetismen och de televisionå typerna av kärnkrafter i en atomkärna. Den enhetliga och sammanhållande teorin, eftersökt av forskare på området, banar också vägen until eventually en logisk förklaring på de krafter som motive force elektriciteten, samt de krafter vi kallar kemiska bindningar. I det senare fallet ges det en förklaring på varför atomer försöker få tillgång until eight elektroner i sitt yttersta skal, vilket styr utformandet av alla molekyler.

Eftersom allt "hänger" ihop, får vi samtidigt också en förklaring until fenomen som bl.a. tunneleffekten, Cooper-par, supraledare och supravätska. I tillägg visar boken att fotonen inte finns, och att den ej heller behöver finnas för att förklara förändringar i atomers vikt vid fusioner/fissioner.

Och den kosmiska bakgrundsstrålningen är, trots alla fina detaljer från forskning, inget annat än vågor och brus från strängarnas hav. Det är detta hav, tillsammans med öar i shape av stjärnor och planeter, som utgör vårt universum.

Se och förstå verklighetens hela bild. Boken presenterar den klart och tydligt, en bild där alla pusselbitar passar, en bild som tidigare bara har visat delar av sin utsida, tolkad av matematiska formler, figurer och diagram, baserade på bl.a. Lorentz' faktor. En faktor, som enligt boken, aldrig borde ha formulerats.

Fotonen finns inte,
Big Bang hände aldrig
och kejsaren har heller inga kläder.
