Hyperbolic Functions Hyperbolic Functions and Non-Hyperbolic Claims The traditional trigonometry functions are based on the coordinates of a circle. But what if we use something else? What we get is a set of very interesting functions that connect complex numbers, conic sections, and hanging ropes.

Comets Radio Call from Space Taxis In 1965, a comet was emitting a constant frequency of around 1600 MHz. Was it aliens hitchhicking a ride to Earth?

Fringe Shift Demolishing the Ether (▲ not that one). The aether was the medium permeating space. But does it really exist?

Neutron Capture Mystery of the Elements If heavier elements have lesser binding energy per nucleon and are hence less stable, how on Earth were they formed?

Trajectory Energy of a Body under a Gravitational Trajectory When a body is moving under the influence of gravity, it follows a conic section. Why?

p-value What is my data trying to tell me? An Introduction to Statistical Significance and Inference The only step that stands between you and your shiny Nobel Prize is the final step of any experiment: understanding what exactly your data is trying to tell you.

Electricity Was Michael Faraday a rockstar? The electric guitar which revolutionized rock music works on the basis of Faraday's laws. So who is the real rock star here? You decide.

Origami Mathematics and Origami The hidden mathematical beauty in the ancient Japanese art of paper folding.

Entropy The Direction of Time Time is a scalar. But what makes it move forwards? Why doesn't some stuff happen backward, like a video played backward?
