The Alsos Digital Library for Nuclear Issues
Digital Library for Nuclear Issues provides a broad,
balanced range of annotated references for the study of nuclear
issues. This searchable collection includes books, articles,
films, CD-ROMs, and websites. All annotations have been reviewed
by members of the library’s prestigious National Advisory Board.
At the beginning of a whole new millennium, modern science is
now helping us construct a truly big picture. We are coming to
appreciate how all objects—from quark to quasar, from microbe to
mind—are interrelated. We are attempting to decipher the
cosmic evolution: a grand synthesis of all the many varied
changes in the assembly and composition of radiation, matter,
and life throughout the history of the Universe.
Exploring Gravity is a set of physics tutorials based upon a
selection of topics relating to gravity. They range from the
history of how gravitational concepts came about right through
to black holes and gravitational waves. The tutorials are
loosely aimed at year 11-12 (last two years of high school) to
first year university level.

Interactions.org is designed to serve as a central resource
for communicators of particle physics. The site is updated daily
with news, information, images and links from the world of
particle physics. It provides links to current particle physics
news from the world's press, high-resolution photos and graphics
from the particle physics laboratories of the world; links to
education and outreach programs; information about science
policy and funding; links to universities; a glossary; and a
conference calendar. Although Interactions.org is not designed
to provide basic education about the science of particle
physics, it provides links to many such educational sites
Physics Forums is the place to interact with other people
with an interest in Physics. An especially useful place to get
Using powerful natural language query software (EasyAsk) the
site answers your question with a series of relevant and
accurate web sites from its database of refereed resources. If
you provide more information such as age and knowledge of
physics the answers become even more focused. By registering,
the site will remember your profile for your next visit and
allow you to rank and comment on search results.
As well as asking questions you can explore the relevance and
importance of physics in all our lives with
Physics Life. Playing with this fun multimedia site shows
you the influences and applications of physics in everything
from the skateboarding to kitchen appliances.
These pages contain, in chronological order, a selective
list of discoveries from natural philosophy. These are the
findings which have helped us understand the laws of physics,
the universe and our place in it.

The Second Superstring Revolution
Despite all the progress that has taken place in our
superstring theory, there are many important questions whose
answers are still unknown. It is not clear how many important
discoveries still remain to be made before it will be possible
to answer the ultimate question that we are striving towards --
why does the universe behave the way it does?
Society of Physics Students
Society of Physics Students (SPS) is a professional
association explicitly designed for students. Membership,
through collegiate chapters, is open to anyone interested in
physics. The only requirement for membership is that you be
interested in physics. Besides physics majors, our members
include majors in chemistry, computer science, engineering,
geology, mathematics, medicine, and other fields. The SPS exists
to help students transform themselves into contributing members
of the professional community. Course work develops only one
range of skills. Other skills needed to flourish professionally
include effective communication and personal interactions,
leadership experience, establishing a personal network of
contacts, presenting scholarly work in professional meetings and
journals, and outreach services to the campus and local
