About this Blog
In this blog I comment on the physics world in subjects ranging from particle physics and cosmology to creativity. I look at the wonderful expansion in discoveries and new ideas in the physics world, and also look at problems such as the increasing difficulties of funding research, particularly research requiring large experimental equipment. This is not a rapid news blog, it is a reflective blog.
I will keep my pieces short, perhaps a thousand words but no more than several thousand. There will also be guest bloggers, experts in their areas of physics, and their pieces may be longer. I hope this blog reaches a broad range of physics lovers from students to professionals. I will do this, still keeping my pieces short, by giving general informational references. But in most cases the reader can simply go to the Internet.
Comments, reflective or not, are of course welcome.
