    Synthetic Biology Programs

    Does anyone know of any prominent schools that offer programs that focus mostly on genetic engineering and synthetic biology? I have reviewed biological engineering programs of a few schools and the curricula comprising their programs seem to lack focus with this respect. Perhaps, graduate...

    Universe from nothing ?

    The bulk of this would be to expand my understanding of what a field actually is so please keep that in mind. I don't think the 'virtual particles from nothing' is a mainstream scientific theory but would like to discuss for the above reason. I have watched some videos of Lawrence Krauss...

    Aero employment looking hopeless

    So I graduated back in Dec. 2011 with an aerospace bachelors and have been applying ever since here and there. I spoke with an acquaintance in the field who gave me some advice after about 8 months after graduating. He had told me my resume was horrible so I revamped the whole thing with his...

    Diff Equation Problem Help

    Note: I think I get too specific about the problem when what I am asking about a specific part of the whole problem. The problem: Find a shape with volume V(t) and surface area Ab(t) such that Pe(t) = Pa(t). In the interest of time I will not refer to what all variables signify; I will keep it...

    Lorentz Contraction ?s and Implication

    Unfortunately, my knowledge on this is limited to wiki which I trust is relatively correct but I would like to clear up some ambiguity. (I dont mind technical but please back it up with a general explanation since I am completely new to this. The general explanations I value more.) Wiki quote...

    Magnetism, Relativity, Pulling Forces

    This may seem really elementary or just based on total misconception but can you not explain any pulling force at distances in terms of relative space and time coordinates instead? Gravity before Einstein: property intrinsic to mass; masses pull each other. ...after Einstein: property...

    Gravitational Time Dilation and Twin Paradox ?'s

    Disclaimer: Im relatively illiterate on the subject so please try to keep explanations generally understandable. Aerospace undergrad programs get zero exposure to relativity I suppose. [Gravitational Time Dilation] First I want to know if im correct in saying that the gravitational time...

    Laser Designators (questions)

    So, it seems this is the most appropiate forum section for this question... Can anyone give a simple explanation of the parts that make a laser designating system and how a typical unit works. Also, once a coordinate is established, how does this information get communicated to other...
