  1. correct me if i'm wrong, but i don't think there is a continous connection between the two constants. (for instant, i think that slightly different laws govern electrons that planets)
  2. are ageing differences between races due to some form of evolutionary effects? as in did they provide advantages or disadvantages in certain types of lifestyles of situations?
  3. could this build up of static electricity be enough to damage sensitive electrical equiptment on the moon? if the moon was ever to be colonised, would this be a problem?
  4. Oh... fair enough. Thanks for shedding light on my misunderstanding.
  5. water is found on a distant planet that has a surface temperature of about 1000 degrees Celsius and is loosing about 10,000 tons of material every second? How does this water survive, and how on earth did they find it in these conditions?
  6. correct me if i'm wrong, but people of the aisian persuasion tend to lok slightly younger than they really are. i arrived at this assumption because there are several chinese/japanese students in my further maths class who look about the same age or a bit younger than me, yet are at least one year older than me.
  7. would it ever be possible for enough static electricity to built up on the moon for a whole load of electrons to suddenly jump across from one body to the other, a bit like giant lightning?
  8. I have obtained information about university sponsorship from both the MOD and the Navy, but have only started to follow it through with the Navy at the moment. As far as I know, I should not need to apply for sponsorship untill I apply to a university. I also intend to take a gap year to include a couple of work placements in the subject areas that I will be studying at university, and possibly an expedidtion of some sort. This could also be linked to my subject area. Does anyone have any good ideas about what I could do for my gap year? Are universities less likely to take people
  9. What are the options for living on campus (in general)? My ideal would be to do a Meng sandwitch course, hopefully with MOD sponsorship, then do a few years compulsory service in the MOD of possibly the Navy. Finaly, I would love to work towards being part of a space program, if possible, and maybe even work in the ISS or something like that.
  10. No your posts are not too late - I have untill next January to make my final decisions. Recently I have shown some particular interest in both Leeds University and Imperial College London. My subject areas would be mechanical or electronical engineering. Some examples of courses that I'm interested in are: space engineering micro-electronics nano-technology mechatronics and robotics I've also looked at some more general courses too. If anyone has been to these universities or done courses like these, then please state you opinions. Thank you.
  11. Thanks for that... It seems that I cannot get to the qhole articel any more for some random reason... sorry. Aside from that, is there anyone out there who has a good background knowledge of these developments and can shed some more light on the details and main concepts?
  12. sorry... you're probably right. do you think that i could post the whole article?
  13. I read an articly in the 28 April edition of New Scientist which sparked my interest. A particle physicist called Philip Mannheim put forward an interesting theory concerning the cosmological and gravitational constants. In essence, he seems to be suggesting that insted of trying to find an ever smaller cosmological constant (CC), it might be a better idea idea to use two different gravitational constants called Gnewton and Gcosmo. The former is used on small scales whilst the latter is derived from particle physics and is used on large, cosmological scales. Click here for the link: Partic
  14. thanks for that... very useful, your statement is.
