Ever tried to picture how much one rocket weighs compared to another, or how heavy some of the craft orbiting our planet really are? Well this chart explains all.
At high school, your physics teacher probably drummed it into you that mass and weight are completely different things—but actually, they were wrong all along.
Mustachioed UC Berkeley computer science professor John Kubiatowicz told the NY Times that your Kindle gets heavier when you add e-books. Don't worry, though, you won't feel it with your hand, or with any scale that we've ever created.
In an effort to produce mass quantities of healthier H2O, Chinese scientists have come up with a new method to change water's chemical composition. It involves making light water.
iBreviary—the daily prayer book for iPhone—will become a full Roman missal for iPad, allowing priests to celebrate mass in English, French, Spanish, Italian, and Latin. The Vatican-sanctioned application, created Padre Paolo Padrini, includes:
Yesterday we got a peek at the combined power of nanotubes-technology that makes a rope-driven space elevator feasible-but what can just one do on its own? Berkeley researchers have discovered that one nanotube can be used as a tiny platform to determine the mass of a single atom.
