Physics is such a comprehensive topic that no one could possible hope to include every aspect of it in one place. Entire libraries are dedicated to trying to do just that and they find something new to add every year. What Universe Today has done is compile a list of links to a wide variety of the physics topics that can be found on this site. To sort of intrigue you before you dive into the links, here are a few physics facts:

Absolute zero is -273.15ยบ C. No lab has ever been able to produce it. Close, but no cigar.

Scientist know that nuclear fusion could produce enough energy to sustain our world throughout the remainder of its existence, but no one has ever been able to produce controlled nuclear fusion. The key to fusions success is in control.

John Dalton is known for creating the basis for the current atomic model, but did you know the first atomic model predates his by over 1,000 years?

According to the second law of thermodynamics, our universe will end in a horrible heat death.

Did you know that there is a large number of people who think that the Large Hadron Collider will actually create a black hole that will engulf the Earth from the surface? A little too much science fiction, don’t you think?

These are just a few of the interesting facts that you can find in the links below. Enjoy your hunting!
