The Fundamental Structure of Matter: Quarks, Gluons and the Higgs Particle

The recent discovery of the Higgs particle completes the so-called Standard Model of the fundamental particles and forces of Nature. But there are still questions it doesn’t answer. Learn about particles such as the quarks and gluons which make up the proton, and the forces which both hold them together, and allow them to decay. Why is the Higgs particle needed? And what about dark matter? Discovering atoms and nuclei; the Strong Interaction which holds nuclei together, and the... [More]

Measuring Morality: How Science can be used to inform Ethical Decisions

For 3000 years philosophers have debated morality and ethics. Here we use the tools of science to tackle these knotty questions. Given that one cannot derive an ought from an is, we explore a methodology which starts with the simplest ethical principle, but has all of science available – including measures of sentience. Finally we put a score – the merit – on outcomes. Real-life applications are presented, along with a selection of advanced topics. SUGGESTED READING Practical... [More]

The Amazing Things that Wild Animals do to Reproduce

All organisms reproduce, and the evolutionary goal of each organism is to maximize the passing on of its genes to the next generation. The drive to achieve this has resulted in a staggering array of reproductive phenomena in the animal kingdom. These include complex sexual organs even in otherwise “simple” animals, over-the-top behaviours, bizarre ways of transferring sperm, use of environmental conditions and not genes to determine male or female, sex change later in life, and...
