weekly topic: part zero

Hello happy readers — of which I have no idea if you number among the many or the few (read: still only Amanda T.) — I’ve decided to change things up just a little bit.  I’m still going to blog just the same, but I would like to add a weekly edition. 

Every week I’ll choose a physics/astronomy topic and post about it.  So what would you like to know?  Gimme some suggestions! Have a hankering to understand a little bit about quantum entanglement?  Wondering what the hell this “dark energy” is all about?  Something the matter with dark matter?  Nothing is too taboo.  Sockyatome (preferably in the comments)!


P.S. For your viewing pleasure:

    What is the Higgs Boson, and why is it so important?

      Hey Jacob,

      I am most definitely planning to write more about the Higgs, as it is indeed very important to particle physics, but for the time being let me direct you to an older post of mine, LHC part deux. There you’ll find a bunch of links and videos to places where you can learn more about the Higgs boson.

      Thanks for reading! And let me know if you have any more questions (in general, or about the Higgs) after you see the post!

    Why do we think that electrons actually ARE probability distributions rather than just appearing to be probability distributions due to our instrumentation?
