This blog is dedicated to answering hypothetical questions using physics, such as “What would happen if you tried to hit a baseball pitched at 90% the speed of light?"
Do explanations of the Higgs particle usually come off as complicated and confusing? Well, this blogger does a really good job of making complex ideas, such as the Higgs, come across as simple. That is all thanks to graphics and easy to understand wording.
The writers for this website explain a wide variety of topics, from GPS units to 3-D film making techniques, but the authors tie everything back to physics, of course.
Visit this website for access to digitized versions of Albert Einstein's manuscripts.
This is the place to go if you would rather play a game than read an article to learn about physics.
