The Physics Philes, lesson 47: Your Mission, If You Choose to Accept It…
Uuuuuuugh. I’m once again full of fail this week. And full of excuses!
I have my trig final this week. On Wednesday. I’m nervous about it. I need to study. I really need to study. So I’m blowing this post off this week. I’m sorry! I really am. I love this weekly post more than any other post I do and I hate when I have to skip it. Luckily, after my final I’ll have a whole summer of uninterrupted physics. So that’s something you can look forward to.
But wait! You didn’t think I’d leave you empty-handed, did you? Of course I wouldn’t! What do you think of me?
A physicist Facebook friend – indeed, the very same one who brought you the Great Black Hole Problem of 2013 – decided to drop something else in my lap: Universe in Problems. He either wants to help me learn physics, or he hates me. The jury is still out.
Actually, this looks pretty cool even though I haven’t quite had the time to really sink my teeth into it yet. The idea is get familiar with cosmological concepts and developments through problem-solving, not just reading popular representations. It might be worth a look-through if you want a deeper understanding of what’s happening in the cosmos, and you don’t want to read what some lawyer schmo has to say about it. I hope to dive into it in a bigger way in the next couple of weeks (just for my own enjoyment, not necessarily blog-fodder) and I’d be interested to know what you think of it.
I will be back next week with MOAR PHYSICS. I pinky-swear promise. And you let me know what you think about Universe in Problems. Deal?
