Join the Fun!
Celebrating 4 Years of Amazing Members!

 

It’s been a month long celebration and today the team at element14 Community would like to take the opportunity to say a BIG THANK YOU!  We really appreciate all of our amazing members - the Community wouldn’t be what it is today without all of you!

 


Lots of you signed our Birthday Card, were introduced to the nearly 300 Original Members still active today, learned about our Top 10 Most Helpful Members, and many more of you participated in our Amazing BrainTeaser challenge!  Congrats to all of our winners of the SABRE Lite Dev. Kits(yami759, M W, davidbaker100, was, danteo, najath, and 3 more winners to be announced soon!) If you’re still hungry for FREE products to try out, why not pop over to RoadTest?  If you’re looking to test your skills in Arduino, check out the Get Closer Wearables Challenge

 


Next year we’ll be celebrating 5 years of amazing members on element14 Community!  We look forward to celebrating with you all again next year!  Until then, we'll leave you with this photo that we hope conveys our true appreciation of all of you, amazing members!

Hi everyone,

 

I am currently writing a new book, tentatively titled "I Killed Schrodingers Cat!".

 

I need your help to create a consensus about the current understanding of these issues.  I will outline about 30 questions here that I would like for you all to answer.  Most will be just Yes or No answeres, though I will also ask for you to opine at length about any issues that you see from my questions.

 

Element 14 has graciously allowed me to run this informal poll and any inputs I use will be referenced as Element 14 data.  No one's identity will be disclosed.

 

So without further ado, here are the questions.

 

1. Quantum Physics adequately accounts for Atomic and subatomic issues.  Y or N.

 

2. Protons are Positively charged. Y or N.

 

3. Electrons orbit the atomic nucleus.  Y or N.

 

4.  Photons have no mass.  Y or N.

 

5.  Einstiens E=mc^2 equation means you can extract energy from matter.  Y or N.

 

6. Neutrons have no electric charge.  Y or N.

 

7. Tachions can exceed the speed of light.  Y or N.

 

8. Helium is made by fusing two Hydrogen atoms together in a star.  Y or N.

 

9. Deutrium atoms have two protons at the nucleus.  Y or N.

 

10. Electrons are negatively charged.  Y or N.

 

11. Gravity is too weak to work at the atomic and subatomic level.  Y or N.

 

12.  Electrons move through conductors to carry current in electronics.  Y or N.

 

13.  All energy and mass are conserved.  Y or N.

 

14.  Entropy results from Thermodynamic reactions.  Y or N.

 

15.  X-Rays have no mass.  Y or N.

 

16.  The Universe can only be defined using probability equations.  Y or N.

 

17.  The Universe is open ended.  Y or N.

 

18.  Neutrons are pressed into alternative Universes inside of a massive Black Hole as defined by Steven Hawking.  Y or N.

 

19. The Universe will end in a massive Black Hole.  Y or N.

 

20.  A Black Hole emits no energy or matter. Y or N.

 

21.  Gamma Rays have no mass.  Y or N.

 

22.  String Theory is corrrect. Y or N.

 

23. There are more than four dimensions.  Y or N.

 

24.  Time travel is possible.  Y or N.

 

25.  Things can travel faster than light.  Y or N.

 

26.  Hydrogen is created by stars.  Y or N.

 

27.  Cosmic Rays have no mass.  Y or N.

 

28.  Neutrinos have no mass.  Y or N.

 

29. You can create mass from energy.  Y or N.

 

30.  Essay question.  What bothers you most about Quantum Mechanics?

 

 

OK that is the end of the poll.  Remember, if you do not know the answer to a question, leave a question blank.

If you have questions about the book or the poll, please send me a private message.  I am purposely keeping its content quiet whiole we are double checking the mathematics.  I will put up a link to where you can purchase the book once it is published.

 

I will collect your results on 1 Augut 2013.

 

Until then let me thank you all in advance.

As you may have seen in our member areas and home page we are celebrating 4 great years of amazing members at element14. We are thrilled that the community has grown not only  in size, but in in the level of engagement and the scope in which we are able to have conversations about on the community. We wanted to take some time and dedicate a blog post to recognizing some of the first members on the community who are still active four years after we got things started.

Happy 4th Birthday element14

Posted by jbilecsu element14 Team Jun 14, 2013

Another year has flown by. We still can't believe it was only 4 short years ago when the Community first launched.  So, we took a bit of time to see how much we've grown.

Thanks to our amazing members,

element14 Community Team

Celebrating 4 Years of Amazing Members!

 

This month the element14 Community celebrates 4 years of amazing members!  It was 4 years ago this month that the element14 Community was launched! In four years a lot has happened and we'd like to take a moment and celebrate!  We hope you'll join us!
To join the celebration you can participate in our Amazing BrainTeasers activity for a chance to win one of nine SABRE Lite Development Kits.  We'll also be highlighting you, our members, in blogs here in the Members' headquarters all month, and don't forget to stop by and sign the "Birthday Card"!
Thanks again to all of you, our Amazing Members!
Nicole
