This is the last week of the semester, which means my students have sucked all the physical and emotional energy out of me (which is only fair – I’ll suck it back when I give them an exam later this week). I’m trying very hard not to get sick, and when I am done writing I’m going to seek the aid of Nitequil (the good stuff that you get behind the counter, not the silly new formulation).

To keep you busy while I survive writing exams and dealing with panicky students, here are some links:

An interview I did on Brains Matter is here [mp3].

There is a blog carnival like thing that includes some of my content and other stuff you may be interested in over at Sorting Out Science.

Tomorrow I’m going to be writing about the perception of time and velocity.

There is a Science Blog book being put together and they are looking for submissions here .  I’m considering entering and struggling to figure out what to submit. I’m looking at these three posts: 1, 2, 3. What do you think?


  1. Thanks for the link!

    Oh, and if you’re tallying votes on your Science Blog submission, I’d go with #1 (the CMB post). #3 is a bit short compared to what’s been included in the past, and #2 really needs the nice color images (which the book likely won’t be able to handle).

  2. Definitely #3. The concept of the size, shape and our position within the universe are one of the most difficult to comprehend. #3 guided me slightly closer to some understanding and the admission that a professor of astronomy finds it hard makes it priceless.

  3. I think that you should submit #3. In my opinion is is the least understood and brain breaking concepts. It should stand out among other submissions!

  4. Depends on the audience. For my level, I like #3. But if this is for peers, or maybe the level of your students, then #1.
