I’m sure most people know that visible light comes from a specific region of the electromagnetic spectrum, but they probably don’t understand why certain things are specific colors. 1,764 more words

Examining the Stereotypes of our Primitive Brain

We humans prefer mirror images and familiarity and for good reason; familiarity creates a sense of security for the primitive part of our brain.  And if you know anything about the primitive part of the brain—logic and rationale are not its function. 759 more words

Charlie Hedbo and the Martyrdom of Western Values

While the absurdity of the violence upon Charlie Hedbo is shocking and calls for a period of mourning, the resulting public statements from various news outlets on this incident leave me in a state of dissatisfaction. 407 more words

Meanwhile, in Antarctica, the search for signatures of primordial gravitational waves in the polarization of the cosmic microwave background goes on. Here's a fascinating blog by a member of the SPIDER team, whose balloon-borne experiment was recently launched and is currently circling the South Pole taking data. Here's hoping it works out as planned!
