  1. Hey all, Basic question here. I'm a noob starting out with electronics and I've had a hard time getting an answer to the question this topic poses. I've got a basic electronics project I'm putting together: I have a small wind turbine I've put together that generates some electricity. I also have a small solar panel I'd like to wire into this circuit to basically add to my total output and charge a small battery. What would be the best way to go about this? I've heard that charging from multiple sources of varying voltage can be bad, this will obviously be the case considering the wind
  2. Hey all, I've recently come across this work by a man named David Pares and I was wondering what you all thought of it. At first it seems far fetched, but he also seems to be attaining results; what do you think? http://swdllc.paresspacewarpresearch.org/ From the website: "The research team from Omaha, Nebraska, not only believe space warp is a naturally occurring phenomenon, but have produced evidence of the phenomenon in a laboratory environment. David Pares and Matt Judah of Omaha, Nebraska are therefore applying for a provisional patent to protect the ongoing development and ev
  3. Thanks, Baryon! I appreciate it. I figured as much. It's just so frustrating dealing with issues like this; I guess I just wondered if there was more specific research into these areas I could look into.
  4. Hey all, I recently came across this article by a creationist, and I can't find alternative answers to what he provides. I firmly believe evolution happened, but I'd be interested to know what the answer is to some of these questions. This is the article: http://blog.drwile.com/?p=12162 This person is saying that basically Gansus yumenensis was found much earlier in the fossil record than it should have been, therefore evolution is false. The author also goes on to state that some amber was found in a layer that was much too old for amber to have appeared. This is the exact quote:
  5. Hey all, I'm not sure if this should go in Quantum Theory, or Amateur Science, so I just went with Quantum Theory! Since I'm just getting into this stuff, my question is pretty basic: are things REALLY fields, and are things at the quantum level REALLY probabalistic? The reason I ask this is because I'm starting to get confused on what to use as a mental image or a visual model, and what these things actually represent. My understanding of quantum field theory is that there is a field for every subatomic particle we know of: an electron field, a quark field, and then various force-
  6. Hey all! Thanks so much for the replies. Sorry for my delay, been busy as heck! In regards to the question of if I graduated uni, I have I came away with a music major in guitar/voice. But I actually want to write/direct films, and now be a scientist! lol I don't want to go into too much backstory or offend anyone, but basically I come from a very fundamentalist Christian family. I've questioned things all my life but buried the questions due to fear of hell and fear of science sending me to hell! Alas, in the past year or so I've been through a lot of life changes, depression, et
  7. Thanks! Learning those things is on my list of things to do. All I want to do is eat until I explode...that is eat knowledge until my brain explodes I guess I'm still looking for answers, because my question more relates to how do we select a certain type of particle for a certain event? IE in the particle accelerators. How do they only fire protons at protons? Or electrons at electrons? etc. I don't have trouble visualizing a cartoon atom with it's electron shells and quarks in the protons and such, but rather I have some kind of mental disconnect between the cartoon atom and the real de
  8. Hey all! First post here! The basic story is, I've just recently come into this newfound love of science. There's a lot of backstory for it, but I won't bother with that. My issue is with just now coming into science (I'm 22), I'm having a really hard time visualizing/understanding the subatomic world, and I was wondering if you all could help me. The main issue is that I don't really understand how we can perform experiments and operations on particles such as the electron or the protons, quarks, etc. if they're so small that we can't even see them. Let me give an example: electricity
