Re: E=MC2 experiments
Shame Rahvin.

You should have quoted this:

Heinrik in message 24 writes:

E=MC2 in plain english means : Energy equals mass multiplied by the speed of light multiplied by the speed of light.

Already in this thread, there are misconceptions in thinking this has actually been reproduced. It has not. The misconception really is as simple as that.

Along with his most recent:

As it stands e = mc2 i.e the theory of producing matter from energy using the speed of light squared has never been proved, only the reverse.

This I believe is a common misconception amongst the members in this forum.

It kind of ruins his wiggle room. :P

ABE:This ones good also:

It is my contention that only the reverse of Einsteins theory has been proved

But it appears that his contention is math is not always math?

Re: It is all english
How do you communicate scientific information to the layman?

I think the best method would be for the layman to buy a textbook and then do assignments given to them by professors. Sounds odd, but it does seem to work.

Or do you want to keep it to yourself?

Modulous burned his library card in protest. :P

ABE: Joking, thank you Modulous for some great (free!) information. I picked you out because it sunk in.
