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: 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: Bacteria Follow Earth’s Magnetic Field

Dr. Weiping Yu returns with another segment of Science and U. The physicist starts the segment by commenting on the discovery that says chemical-shuttling bacteria follow the Earth’s magnetic field. Are energy fragments the fundamental building blocks of the universe? What should we make of the 10-year plan by U.S. fusion scientists to build a […]

Science and U: New Physics

Dr. Weiping Yu joins us with a brand new segment of Science and U. The physicist comments on the claim that a new Hubble data has explained missing dark matter. Is this claim true? Join Dr. Yu as he provides some interesting explanations on the concept of matter, plus analysis of stories such as the […]

Science and U: Light is a Vibrating Medium

Dr. Weiping Yu is back with another exciting segment of Science and U. The physicist comments on a clinical trial where Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin are proven helpful in the recovery of COVID-19 patients. Dr. Yu also comments on the latest discovery by scientists that outer space isn’t pitch-black. How is light formed and does it […]

Science and U: Complex Magnetism

In this classic Science and U segment from January 9, 2020, physicist Dr. Weiping Yu comments on the latest science news from around the world. The physicist reflects on the news of LIGO picking up on gravitational waves emitted during a celestial scuffle between two neutron stars. Plus, Dr. Yu also comments on pulsar’s surface […]

Science and U: Brian Greene Interview

In this classic episode from February 27, 2020, theoretical physicist Brian Greene, author of ‘Until the End of Time,’ joins David Gornoski and Dr. Weiping Yu. David starts off the episode by briefly reflecting on the trial of Julian Assange. Is string theory the solution to better grasp the universe? Are we really designed for […]

Science and U: Earth Keeps Pulsating

Dr. Weiping Yu returns to the show for another refreshing segment of Science and U. According to a recent article, the Earth is pulsating every 26 seconds but scientists still cannot explain it. Is there an explanation for this? How can we rethink things like physics and technology without politicization and coercion? The future of […]

Dr. Weiping Yu on OSIRIS-REX’s Asteroid Samples, Light Sails Unlocking Interstellar Travel

Dr. Weiping Yu returns for another exciting segment of Science and U. The physicist comments on the news that NASA’s OSIRIS-REX spacecraft has touched the surface of an asteroid on Tuesday to gather a sample of rocks and dirt. What can we expect from the rubble that OSIRIS-REX is bringing home? What’s the difference, from […]

Science and U: Are We Living in a Simulation?

Dr. Weiping Yu is back with another segment of Science and U. On the claim that there is a fifty percent chance we’re living in a simulation, Dr. Yu remarks says, “there is a fundamental problem in quantum physics” and this is why such claims arise. What can better explain our universe if not quantum […]
