A clever photography trick allows you to see the invisible: the rising heat from a lighter, the turbulence around airplane wings, the plume of a sneeze ... and even sound waves.

Lab that I used to work at showed me how they were able to achieve femtosecond jitter rates, which was awesome in of itself. Attosecond pulses, are mindblowing.

Back it up!

If you're writing a thesis you can ignore this because I know you'll be backing it up every few sentences ;)

Every day is backup day!
Or, at least, it should be.

HyperPhysics

This is a great resource whether you are studying physics or just interested. This website contains a heap of information on the different area of physics with some links to some of the derivations of particular formulae. 

Definitely worth checking out if you need to swat up and just want to pursue the field of physics :)

Introduction
Hi there! I am a physicist working on the Astra Gemini Laser in the UK. It's currently the worlds highest intensity dual beam laser system boasting two half petawatt (a thousand million million watts) beamlines which can be used to create very hot, dense and high pressure environments only otherwise seen in stars and the interior of planets.

I will be mainly posting interesting science i have seen, heard and even done so i would suggest adding me to your science circle if you would like to follow. :) 

Loving the science!

I also love debates so will post details of interesting online debates.
