    Abstract: Einstein’s general theory of relativity provoked the need to have an experiment if it had to be considered valid. As a result, Gravity Probe-B experiment was suggested and conducted. The results of the GP-B experiment have shown that the general theory of relativity was correct but it is limited. More information was revealed from this experiment t... Show More

    Abstract: This research paper focuses on the study of Spherical Langmuir Probe I-V characteristics in Maxwellian space plasma. This work is conducted using computational techniques to create the exact plasma conditions of the experimental testing environments. The investigations address the development of a technique to model Maxwellian plasma. Three differe... Show More

    Abstract: The apparent paradox represented by the second law's future of decay and the evolution of living structures in nature has been introduced. The second law in its historic-conventional form has been discussed. The corrected version of this law in terms of new research on the foundations of classical thermodynamics has been discussed. Finally a resolu... Show More
