The fairest thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and science. He who knows it not and can no longer wonder, no longer feel amazement, is as good as dead, a snuffed-out candle.
Will You not agree with Einstein? In my opinion, his words express the truth about our world: it is wonderful and we should try to get to know it as much as possible. Our reality is shaped by rules and laws knowledge of which allows us to understand it. This is the purpose of science.
Natural sciences are often perceived as boring and difficult for common people to understand. As in many areas of life, it also depends on our own point of view. Nowadays, the complication and growth of specialization make the whole knowledge in the field of natural sciences impossible to comprehend for one person. Humanism from times of Leonardo da Vinci - when one man could be a specialist in all areas of knowledge - have unfortunately passed forever.
However, it is not as bad as it may seem - we can conduct a lot of interesting experiments and research on our own. Getting to know the laws and rules underlying our reality gives great satisfaction… Plus, it is a great way to learn something new.
My aim for creating this website is to popularize science and draw attention to the fact that it does not only consist of long, incomprehensible mathematical formulas and abstract theories. In fact, a true scientist must keep balance between theoretical and empirical approaches. The experiment and mathematical model must always complement each other. I hope, my Dear Reader, that you will stop here for a moment or two and try to use the information you will gain in practice.
I would like to thank my family and friends for all their support and understanding. Their help gives me a lot of energy. I am especially grateful to my brother - without his IT support this site might not have been created at all.
As you know, anything can be used for good or bad purposes. Presented experiments, their descriptions and illustrative materials have been created for didactic purposes. They should be treated as an interesting way to expand your knowledge. However, it must always be remembered that any experiment carried out in a careless, inattentive or erroneous manner may endanger life or health. I warn you against carrying out experiments which, despite my sincere intentions, are for whatever reason incomprehensible for the reader. Remember: you only have one health and life! In case of any doubts, it is best to write to me with a question (contact here).
Any knowledge derived from my articles must not be used for purposes contrary to applicable law!
Most of the experiments presented on this page do not require use of specialized tools and difficult-to-obtain materials. I conducted and verified/checked all of them myself. If there is any danger, it is clearly described each and every time it may occur.
I recommend reading my publications in scientific, popular science and methodology journals.
