Talking about the Higgs Boson

Cosmologist Sean Carroll talking about the Higgs Boson.

He says we won’t get jet packs from this, but I’d bet that hover boards arise from the discoveries at the LHC.

The pleasure of finding things

I am a big fan of public libraries. They not only contain vast amounts of information and entertainment in books, videos, and other media, but they also have librarians to help you quench your thirst for knowledge.

Recently at a library book sale I found volume 2 of Feynman Lectures On Physics.

Richard Feynman was a Nobel Prize winning physicist who was as good as a showman as he was a scientist.

I found Paul A. Kaminskas’ copy actually. Along with some homework. Maybe your teacher will let you turn it in for late credit?

Paul, if you have volumes 1 & 3, I would love to purchase those too. Or you can donate them to the library, so I can buy it from them and continue supporting my library.
