Science and U: Stars Challenge Newton’s Law

Skip past 1 hour 14 minutes in the video for this segment.  Dr. Weiping Yu returns with a refreshing segment of Science and U. The physicist comments on how the magnetic aspect of black holes is finally being explored, how magnetism helps explain Earth’s rotation, how a new discovery in the stars challenges Newton’s […]

Science and U: What Is Light?

What do we make of Energy Vault’s plan to deploy gravity-based energy storage in China? Is it possible for physicists to manipulate magnetism with light? Can humans sense strangers during sleep? Join Dr. Weiping Yu as he comments on the latest science news in this refreshing segment of Science and U.

Science and U: Perseverance Lands Safely on Mars

Dr. Weiping Yu returns with another brand new segment of Science and U. The physicist comments on the latest news that the NASA rover Perseverance has landed on Mars and has begun searching for signs of ancient life. How are the prospects looking for future colonization on Mars? Dr. Yu also comments on a new […]

Science and U: Magnetism Produces Quantum Response

The chief science advisor of A Neighbor’s Choice, Dr. Weiping Yu, returns with another segment of Science and U. The physicist comments on the news that scientists in Tokyo have confirmed quantum response to magnetism in cells. “Of course,” Dr. Yu remarks, “when you have magnetic field interact with cells you will see quantum effects.” […]

Science and U: Black Hole Goes Missing

Dr. Weiping Yu returns with another refreshing segment of Science and U. The physicist comments on the claim that astronomers have found the oldest supermassive black hole in the universe and another, more puzzling, observation of a missing black hole. Dr. Yu once again asserts that there is no black hole at the center of […]

Science and U: First Sign of Aliens?

Dr. Weiping Yu returns with another refreshing segment of Science and U. Dr. Yu comments on the claim by Harvard professor Avi Loeb that alien debris passed near Earth in 2017 and that it was the first sign of intelligent life outside Earth. A new research suggests that “maybe ‘dark matter’ doesn’t exist after all.” […]

Science and U: Challenging Quantum Physics

Dr. Weiping Yu returns with another fascinating segment of Science and U. Dr. Yu and David Gornoski look back at the scientific landmarks in 2020. Dr. Yu notes the amazing feat of Hayabusa2 in bringing back asteroid samples and showing the difference between comets and meteorites. The physicist also comments on the claim, according to […]

Science and U: Magnetic Particles Make up the Universe

Dr. Weiping Yu is back with another segment of Science and U. The physicist comments yet again on the validity of black holes. What exactly is the black hole phenomenon? Dr. Yu has some surprising explanations. “Blackhole force is magnetic attraction force,” Dr. Yu says. Dr. Yu also comments on a new study that says […]

Science and U: A Better Way Towards Nuclear Fusion

Dr. Weiping Yu is back with another mythbusting segment of Science and U. The physicist comments on some of the latest news in the world of science–news such as the development of a spherical tokamak reactor. Can this experimental nuclear reactor move fusion forward? “We’re heading in the wrong direction,” Dr. Yu says, “this kind […]
