Neat. Makes me want to do all my baking in Kelvin.
cool, to an atomic level Wish they'd had sites like this when I was falling-asleep over turgid textbooks of Quantum stuff at Uni. Also, much better than the animations in
What the Bleep
, which seems quite misleading (from the excerpts I've seen).
Great link! That was a fun read. I had read several articles on BES before, but it was nice to get such a great conceptualization in my mind, rather than ploughing through equations!
Excellente! I learned a lot.
Really good. Thanks !
Kelvin's not here, man.
(nifty page too btw, thanks)
Grrrreat post. A well-done and clearly written explanation. One weird thing about the Bose-Einstein condensate is that if you manipulate it inside a magnetic field, it can explode in a fashion that looks like a tiny supernova. They call this phenomena,
. I keed you not. Those wacky physicists.
And half of the bosenova atoms are unaccounted for.
