- First of all, there's an interesting new blog out there, with experimental particle physics explained to laymen. The language is not English, but it is a language you should learn, too.
- Peter Woit has news about the Bogdanovs. The whole story is just fascinating - the two brothers are certified cranks, but they for sure have other skills beyond theoretical physics. Follow the developments there.
- Marni Dee Sheppeard puts forth a remarkably simple diagram to compute quark masses.
- Ed Darrell reports on the war on Malaria, making some interesting points on DDT use.
- Jester discusses a new hypothesis according to which the Standard Model of particle physics, with all its shortcomings, might well be the theory without any need for extensions and embellishments. Interesting idea!
What's Going On Around
Swamped by my course of Subnuclear Gauge Physics, I have little time left to surf the web and keep an eye on what happens in the blogs I usually visit. Nevertheless, today is Saturday and I have allowed myself a short tour. Below is a list of the most interesting things I have read.
