Were I a #photon, how would I perceive the #world and how the world would perceive me?
It is known from the Earth that it traverses a distance of one meter in 2.15*10-3 seconds; or a second is the time that it takes to move 465 meters. Thus the photon moves 3*108 meters in a second. And if we define the unit of measure on the basis of the photon’s-motion, in fact a meter is the distance that the photon travels in 33.33*10-10 seconds. It can, therefore, advance thousands of meters in a hundredth of a second.

Let us say that the photon is an object or a physical person who performs his tasks at such an incredible speed; how can he perceive, this fast and cunning photon, the rest of the world?

Nuevo artículo publicado en el número de enero 2017 de la revista +Physics Education del Institute of Physics (IOP).
En este trabajo, junto con +Arturo C. Marti, proponemos una actividad experimental ideal para salidas didácticas, que consiste en utilizar el sensor de presión de un smartphone para medir velocidades verticales en diferentes situaciones: ascensores, escaleras, drones, etc.

Many students confuse an ancient pagan belief system - astrology - with the modern science of astronomy.

Other times people know the difference between the two, yet insist that astrology makes valid, reliable predictions. As we science teachers know , however, that is not correct.

To address this issue I have created a lesson on the differences between astrology and astronomy, and offer an article on the reality of astrological predictions: they always turn out to be no better than random chance.
