Ep 160: 2015 The year of light



2015 was a magnificent year for physics. Not only was it the International Year of Light and light-based technologies, it was an outstanding year of astronomical achievement, culminating with the magnificent New Horizons photos of Pluto. It was also 100 years since the Theory of General Relativity was published, and 50 years since the Cosmic Background Radiation was discovered.

Australia also broke a couple of astronomical world records: The most people stargazing across Australia, and in a single location at ANU. One of the organisers of this world record was Tom Gordon, a science communicator at The University of Sydney who runs Kickstart Physics (Instagram), which are physics workshops aimed at year 12 science students and teachers. Tom, along with Christie McMonigal and Shane Hengst, runs the STEMPunk podcast, chatting about science communication and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM): Communicating scientifically with science communicators.

Who better to talk to about this splendid year in Physics than Tom?

  5. ick the friends you go with wisely. They say you don’t know someone until you travel with them. You’ll spend hours crammed in a car with your friends and you’ll share meals together and you might even get lost along the way. If you guys don’t get along it could be corpclass a recipe for disaster. The longer the distance the more you should pay close attention to your friend selection. You also need to discuss with them ahead of time who’s car you’ll be using and how much you’ll each contribute towards petrol and the toll gates along the way. The friends you pick to go with on your road trip could make it the best time of your life or a nightmare.

  8. Longtime supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your Website is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in Website like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.
    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “gtacheatcode” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works. Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

Roiland has stated his and Harmon's intentions for the series to lack traditional continuity, opting for discontinuous storylines "not bound by rules".[32] He has also confirmed that the writers avoid revisiting old tropes from the show's past, "in fear of that coming off as disingenuous fan service.

  28. I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again. If you are going through any relationship stress or you want back your Ex or Divorce husband you can contact his whatsapp +2347012841542 or email emutemple@gmail.com
