If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Video Description

We can't see air so its hard to think of it as matter. Aaron offers us a way to prove that air, a gas, is matter and a little bit more.

Hi Ramona,

Your video is short and sweet, I'm a very visual person so I really liked when you tried out the experiment and saw what you use to make the experiment and how it affected, I good way of learning for me is listening and see it, so you've got 5 stars from me!

Thanks for sharing your video

Please take the time to watch, comment and rate on my video "having fun no Matter what"

Great physics explanation of something so difficult to grasp conceptually! I really enjoyed your video!

If you get a chance I would really appreciate it if you gave our video a watch and rated it too!

Thanks in advance,
