Not unlike the fading tones of a ringing crystal goblet, the spacetime continuum andthe universe itself may be oscillating through billions of years of cosmic time, say two U.S. physicists. In a paper recently published in The Astronomical Journal, physicists Harry Ringermacher and Lawrence Mead at the University of Southern Mississippi [...]

Back in the news...Deflategate and the limits of science http://ow.ly/OGoPq

It was a nice thought, but recent information has basically told us to forget it. As quarterback Tom Brady begins his appeal to reverse the NFL’s findings, the truth will remain, it appears, in the eye of the beholder.

Story
Tagline
AAPT is the premier professional society established to advance physics education.
Introduction
AAPT is a professional membership association of scientists dedicated to enhancing the understanding and appreciation of physics through teaching.

AAPT was established in 1930 with the fundamental goal of ensuring the "dissemination of knowledge of physics, particularly by way of teaching." Paul E. Klopsteg, Ph.D., the Association's first president, led the effort to organize the first association dedicated to improving physics education. Today that vision is supported by more than 10,000 members in 30 countries around the world.
