    Τα όρια της Επιστήμης…

    Οι ακριβείς (θετικές) επιστήμες μπορούν να είναι πολύ χρήσιμες, αλλά έχουν και τα όρια τους. Το παρόν άρθρο δείχνει – μέσω των λόγων μεγάλων επιστημόνων όπως ο Max Planck και ο Erwin Schroedinger – τους βασικούς περιορισμούς και τις αποτυχίες των θετικών επιστημών. Ο στόχος είναι να βοηθήσει τους αναγνώστες να κατανοήσουν πως το να πιστεύεις σε ένα μόνο πράγμα – ό,τι και αν είναι αυτό – μπορεί να είναι επικίνδυνο…

  • Advanced Materials: Use of Polypyrrole in Printed Circuit Boards (PCB)

    The objective of our work is to investigate the application of polypyrrole (PPy) as a conductive precoat for the metallization of PCB holes. The method includes: etching of FR4, in situ deposition of a thin film of PPy, resulting in a FR4/PPy electrode. The process is very promising and environmentally friendly compared to the conventional electroless one. Several variables of the process at a laboratory level were studied. The poylyrrole-modified FR4 surfaces were conductive enough to allow the copper plating of the specimens at a later stage. Moreover, the peel strength of the copper plated on FR4 with our method was adequate.

  • Earth at the Center of the Universe?

    People until the 16th centrury believed that our Earth was at the center of the Universe. But after Copernicus we believe that the Earth is just an insignificant planet as many other planets in the Universe. What we do not know is that astronomers “positioned” Sun at the center of the solar system based on philosophical assumptions and not on hard data. Modern well-established cosmologists have shown that the geocentric model might be more valid than we think…

  • The dictatorship of the science of psychiatry

    The dictatorship of the science of psychiatry

    The purpose of this article is to show how medicine and, more in particular, psychiatry is more and more becoming the new “dictator” of human affairs. It shows how medicine paid by pharmaceutical companies is something that should trouble us. It demonstrates how psychiatrists are the tools of modern societies to define the “proper” way of thinking and behaving, via containing the people who behave in an unorthodox way that we cannot explain.
