NEWTON'S Ask A Scientist will be offline until April 25th
NEWTON'S Ask A Scientist volunteer staff is currently processing recent requests.
Thank you for your patience and apologize for any inconvenience.
Additional questions will be accepted as soon as we catch up. Usually you will find this service receiving questions between 9 and 3 CT US during the weekday. This service is experiencing over ten million hits a month and the time required by our volunteers to make this service function is often taxing!
Meanwhile, we suggest that you check the NEWTON Archives because most requests have
been previously addressed, and found within our 20,000+ pages of archives.
Less than 3% of the questions we receive are original
and you can pretty much count on our 21+ years worth of questions and answers to
touch upon your topic of interest.
Thanks for making NEWTON's Ask A Scientist service such a success.
