Quantum physics applies Hilbert spaces as the realm in which quantum physical research is done. However, the Hilbert spaces contain nothing that prevents universe from turning into complete chaos. Quantum physics requires extra mechanisms that ensure sufficient coherence.

Reality has built-in principles. If you understand these built-in principles, then these principles teach a lesson.

An old friend of mine gave my family a personal tour of NASA recently which reverberated in my daughter’s bones. She touched the face of history running her fingertips over the very controls used to put Americans on the moon as well as the Apollo 17 command module displayed in Space Center Houston. Her video registers the personal impact in musical images far better than my words.

There are several ways of measuring risks. Two of the most commonly used are absolute risk and relative risk.


In USA Today, Dr. Alex Berezow and I ask what a Trump presidency might mean for science. The reason to ask is obvious; he might win.

And science is one of America’s most important strategic resources. We lead in Nobel prizes and with just five percent of earth’s population we produce over 30 percent of the world’s science.

 Motivating Zero Neutrino Mass Scale

New insight into the phenomenology of neutrino masses is suggested. Four ideas related to new neutrino physics considered: 1) Three absolute neutrino masses with zero smallest nu-mass are pointed out by geometric interpretation of SM hierarchies. <!--[if gte mso 9]> <![endif]-->

Sexual Harassment in academic scientific context, why did it shock us?    What we learned over the last six months is that scientist male and female are still human.   Humans when placed in social context will behave like social and sexual animals that we all are.  Schools are not a safe space from this due to simple human nature.   That said, being the thinking animals that we are we need to know how to control and at least manage those impulses.  Now that the shock has worn off, the veil has come off, and we know scientist are just human.  Some common sense would’ve avoided all of this.
