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 forums@fqxi.org 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.

Robert,

I had seen your video when it won the "Air is Matter" contest at Project Ed, and I am happy to see it in this contest. It is quite appropriate for a contest that is supposed to "show the physics": your really show in an unforgettable way that air is matter!

Good luck in this contest!

Marc

P.S. If you have a chance to view, comment and vote on my trilogy of videos entitled "This Is Physics" --- where I try to convey the "fun of physics" by focusing on some of the greatest moments of its history --- it would be quite appreciated. Only one week left to vote! (Don't forget just before voting to enter the video creator code FQXi sent you, so your vote properly registers in the community category.)

Hello, fellow Project Ed Creator!

I loved your original "Air is Matter" video that won the Project Ed contest; it's hilarious. Unfortunately, I don't think this edit properly explains the physics behind your demonstration. The bit about high and low pressure doesn't seem right to me. The video is still hilarious, and it demonstrates the original point that air is matter very well.

By the way, if you could watch and rate my video, "The Cool Physics of Refrigeration," that would be great!

Thanks,

David

OK, it was fun...

The explanation was just a little off, but overall you proved your point well. Personally; I couldn't tell whether you were right or your brother was wrong, and it doesn't 'matter' much to me. Sure did make folks look ugly though.

All the Best,

Jonathan
