Couldn't say it better myself:
"Our goal is to explain not only what we know, but how we know it, and more importantly, what it means. We wanted to leave readers with the sort of gut understanding that physicists have, only without the math gumming up the works. We wanted to make clear the distinction between what we really know, and what's still on the fringe. We wanted to focus on the science, and not the history; we give credit where credit is due, but don't go in for the narrative description of "Eureka moments." Just as important, we didn't want to take ourselves too seriously."
Wow! I made this scarf two years ago, and I had found the pattern listed on another (long forgotten) page. It's wonderful to see it again!
Robots never get the girls... :(
That's pretty much why I'm a physicist!
Oh, the monotony graduate student life!
This is great for chalk, but I'd also love to see alternative uses for dried up dry-erase markers!
