Time travel: fact or fiction. A study on the scientific, social and historical impacts of time travel.

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Astrophysics, Physics

By Waania Zia Abstract This is an article detailing the different models and theories of time travel, focusing on Einstein’s theory of relativity and Minkowski space-time, which is the combination of the 3 dimensional space with a 4th dimension of time. It delves into the development of time travel within science and fiction as well […]

An examination of feasible rocket propulsion systems for a future single stage rocket

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Astrophysics, Physics, Space

Abstract This paper explores different types of rocket propulsion systems and assesses their benefits and drawbacks. The paper also compares different types of rockets, such as Single Stage rockets and Two Stage rockets, before proposing a propulsion system for a future Single Stage to Orbit (SSTO) rocket. This system shall meet the requirements of both […]

The History of Alexander Fleming and Penicillin

Posted Leave a commentPosted in History of Penicillin

Abstract: The advent of penicillin, a group of antibiotics that fight bacterial infections, is often attributed to a Scottish medical professional and researcher named Alexander Fleming.[1] Despite the fact that he was unable to stabilize penicillin, researchers at Oxford University were able to do so, setting the stage for the mass production of such antibiotics, […]

Ashwin K. Avula (Student)1, Gian Marco. Conte M.D., Ph.D. (Mentor)2, Bradley J. Erickson M.D., Ph.D. (Mentor)2 I.Abstract Gliomas are a category of tumors that affect the brain and spinal regions. These tumors are known to grow alongside and infiltrate normal brain tissue, making surgical removal difficult and complicating treatment procedures.[1] In these cases, several Magnetic […]

The Effectiveness of “Pre-computed Vector Space and Interpolation” Method on the Computing Time for an n-body Simulation

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Astronomy, Astrophysics, Physics

Abstract In the field of physics and astronomy, -body simulations are widely used tools to simulate particles under the influence of gravitational forces, and they are generally made using an algorithm that is almost a brute-force approach, as it computes all pairwise gravitational forces by solving for computational differential equation solutions using algorithms like the […]

Aerobic Respiration and Anticancer Treatment

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Biology, Chemistry

Abstract This article is an overview of aerobic cellular respiration and how the process can be influenced by glycolytic inhibitors as a potential cancer treatment.In the presence of oxygen, glucose undergoes a series of reactions characterised by the overall term “aerobic respiration” in order to synthesise ATP, which is crucial to muscle contraction and movement. […]

MITIGATION OF URBAN HEAT ISLANDS WITH CRYPTOGAMIC COVERS

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Earth Science, Environment

Abhinav Vetcha AP Research Mrs. Katie Upton May 27, 2018 Abstract The urban heat island effect occurs when temperatures in urban areas are higher than the temperatures of the surrounding environment. This effect can be caused by decreased vegetation levels, heat-trapping building arrangements, anthropogenic heat gain (due to heat produced by the high concentration of […]
