I had intended to write up a recent paper for ResearchBlogging today, but I cleverly forgot to bring either the hard copy of the PDF home last night, which wrecked that plan. And I’ve got real lab work to do today, so it’s not happening at work.
This seems like a good opportunity, though, to ask if there are things I ought to be explaining here that haven’t occurred to me for one reason or another. So, as the post title says:
What topics in physics or related areas would you like me to write about here? This could be a recent paper, something from a recent news story (“I heard these guys in India invented a room-temperature superconductor…”), or some background idea that you’ve always wondered about (“What’s angular momentum, anyway?”).
Leave your questions and suggestions in the comments. I won’t promise to answer everything (there are a lot of topics even in physics that I’m not really qualified to comment on), but I’ll make an effort to write up answers to any questions I have good answers for.
