This is my favorite discussion! Which major discoveries have been made in physics on the subjects and topics covered in our course? Can you name the scientific source, comment on it and share it with the class? Please follow the Rubric breakdown for clear guidance. 

Scientific Abstract: Is this discovery less than 1 year old? Can you provide a condensed description of the discovery you have selected, summarizing it in a detailed “scientific abstract” of a few paragraphs? Please use a precise scientific writing style and exercise judgement regarding the information that is necessary (and what is not). Imagine you were writing this for a Scientific Abstract to be used in a scientific publication or for a public presentation at a scientific conference. Tips: Scientific Abstract should not deliver favorable outcomes only, but should also include adverse findings and other related scientific hypotheses that would challenge it. This will require some research on your part in order to evaluate the selected “discovery conclusions’ you will be presenting. Keep it under 200 words and break it down as Background, Methods, Results, and Conclusions. Try your best, and enjoy this process as it may turn out to be a useful professional skill in your career.

Everyday Life: How do you use this discovery in your everyday life? Which equations covered in our physics course (in the chapters we covered) relate to this discovery? Do not include equations, formulas or concepts not included in our physics course. Provide examples by creating a physics problem in the same scientific style as the problems at the end of each Chapter in your ebook, or like in the Video Tutor.  Solve your original creative new Physics Problem step-by-step with units of measurement consistency, framed final answer, and include a drawing or diagram.

Scientific or Academic Institution: Is this discovery from a credible scientific or academic institution? If so, name the source(s), researcher(s) and the paper’s title. Check the author’s biography on the web and include relevant excepts from it. Where was the research conducted? Which academic or scientific institutions were involved? Include relevant scientific information about the academic institutions such as “best known for this discovery or Nobel prize”. You should include enough information to enable the reader or reviewer to verify credibility of the academic institutions involved in this discovery.
