A magnetohydrodynamic generator has been described as a magnet on the tail of a jet engine. A super-hot plasma is created, ionizing the atoms of the fuel mixture.
Useful information driven site which provides details on how light is refracted (including total internal reflection).
X-ray crystallography is the ability to see the internal structure of an object.
A concise but detailed explanation of refraction. Clear diagrams and worked examples, some harder than others.
Applet showing refraction of light from medium 1 to medium 2. refractive indices and incident angle can be altered, and total internal reflection demonstrated.
A discussion of the possibility of ion engines and how they would work.
Applet in two parts - the first a fish's view from under water. In the second the position of the cursor is the source of a light ray. Its path from within the water to an observer appears.
2D physics engine that provides the ability to create objects and see how they react to things such as gravity and air resistance etc.
A material being researched for health uses could lead to a new type of rocket engine.
an excellent search engine you type a question and Ask Jeeves comes up with either the solution or a series of similar questions with answers.
