Significant Points
  • Scientific research and development services firms and the Federal Government employ over half of all physicists and astronomers. Most jobs in basic research usually require a doctoral degree; master's degree holders qualify for some jobs in applied research and development; bachelor's degree holders often qualify as research assistants or for other physics-related occupations, such as technicians. Applicants may face competition for basic research positions due to limited funding; however, those with a background in physics or astronomy may have good opportunities in related fields, such as engineering and technology.
Nature of the Work About this section
Physicists and astronomers conduct research to understand the nature of the universe and everything in it. These scientists observe, measure, interpret, and develop theories to explain celestial and physical phenomena using mathematics. From the vastness of space to the infinitesimal scale of subatomic particles, they study the fundamental properties of the natural world and apply the knowledge gained to design new technologies.

NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory The Milky Way galaxy is a collection of billions of stars, including our planet, our moon, and our sun at its outer edge. Physicists and astronomers use the theories of physics to study the galaxy and everything in it, from the mysterious black holes that may result when giant stars collapse to the movement of electrons. Physicists study the laws and structures of all that exists in the universe, including gravity and other natural forces.

Back to Top Physicists study the natural world, from the tiniest subatomic particles to the largest galaxies. They do experiments to discover the laws of nature. They study what things are made of (matter) and how things behave. They also learn about energy, studying how it changes from one form to another. Some physicists focus on theories. They ask bigger questions about the world around them. They might ask what causes gravity, for example, or what the shape and size of the universe is. Then, they use observation and mathematics to find the answers. Many physicists do experiments. Some, for example, cause collisions between atoms in an accelerator to break them apart or fuse them together. They may also look for clues about what particles come out of atoms when they split. Other physicists apply theories to practical problems. They might create advanced materials, new electronic and optical devices, or medical equipment. Physicists also design research equipment. Some of this equipment is used in surprising ways. For example, the first laser was created for research, but people later discovered that lasers could be used in surgery as well.

    Physicists Vote to Run Tevatron for 3 More Years
    A group of high-energy particle physicists decided this week to recommend extending the life of the Tevatron, the second-most-powerful particle collider in the world, for 3 years. Department of Energy , then Congress and ultimately to the White House. The funding decision could determine whether the United States or Europe wins the race to find the theoretical Higgs boson . It all comes down to $105 million, a tiny amount relative to the billions spent building the massive particle colliders competing for the find. Large Hadron Collider to get there first. faulty magnets The 15 members of the U.S. particle-physics community who gathered in Washington, D.C., this week voted 14 to 1 in favor of giving the Tevatron 3 more years. The machine costs around $50 million per year to run. Fermilab has agreed to come up with $15 million annually, which will be diverted from other scientific projects. “Now it’s up those people [at the DOE] to work together to figure out how to get $35 million per year out of the budget,” Roser said. “With a $4.7 billion total [DOE] Office of Science budget, I’m hoping it won’t be that hard. But we’ll see.”

Physicists show that superfluid light is possible
October 27, 2010 by Lisa Zyga Enlarge These images show the difference between the superfluid regime (left) of light and the turbulent regime (right), which is above the critical velocity. Image credit: Leboeuf and Moulieras. In their study published in a recent issue of Physical Review Letters , Patricio Leboeuf and Simon Moulieras from the University Paris-Sud and CNRS explain that superfluidity is the ability of a fluid to move with zero dissipation or viscosity. A fluid behaves like a superfluid only under a certain critical velocity; above this critical velocity, superfluidity disappears. Most commonly demonstrated in liquid helium, superfluidity occurs when the helium is cooled and some helium atoms have reached their lowest possible energy. At this point, these atoms' quantum wave functions begin to overlap so that they form a Bose-Einstein condensate, in which all the atoms behave as one large atom, and their quantum nature is manifested on the macroscopic scale. Previously, investigations of the superfluid motion of

Finance for Physicists This page arose because I am often asked for advice and suggestions about how to prepare for, and get a job on Wall Street as a quantitative analyst. Everything here is subjective and personal opinion, but I hope that you will find it useful. I've listed some educational resources, ways to start looking for jobs, and provided some links to differing perspectives on the way in which quantitative modeling has influenced the financial crisis. What do physicists actually do on Wall Street? Here is a good article from the Dec 1999 issue of The Industrial Physicist magazine, which describes the impact physicists are having on Wall Street (bear in mind that it was written well before the credit crunch): Risky business on Wall Street? There is no doubt that physicists and "quants" make a real difference to the way in which Wall Street works in the 21st century. Read more about the trends and the dangers ... some of which turned out to be rather prophetic. Or did they? Are physicist quants really to blame for causing the global systemic crisis that emerged on the public's radar screen during 2008? Here is a different viewpoint , describing the problems and counter-productive incentives inherent in the current financial system. You can read an industry perspective on this

An engineer, a physicist, a mathematician, and a mystic were asked to name the greatest invention of all times.
The engineer chose fire, which gave humanity power over matter.
The physicist chose the wheel, which gave humanity the power over space.
The mathematician chose the alphabet, which gave humanity power over symbols. The mystic chose the thermos bottle.
"Why a thermos bottle?" the others asked.
"Because the thermos keeps hot liquids hot in winter and cold liquids cold in summer."
"Yes so what?" "Think about it." said the mystic reverently. That little bottle how does it know A hydrogen atom lost its electron and went to the police station to file a missing electron report.
