i'm still in brasil, but heading home to la serena tomorrow. it's been a fun and humid trip... many more details later along with more regular posts again!
i wanted to take a minute to point out, again, my new favorite blog... cosmic variance! the contributers have been discussing many interesting issues... the best of which are easily digestible physics and astronomy blogs! i'm happy to admit that i've had very fun and enlightening discussions over beers at conferences with a few of the contributors and i'm so delighted to have the opportunity to read more of their thoughts on things ad stuff.
i thought some of you would be interested in a recent post, why does E = mc^2?
