I was peripherally involved in this research, which detected some of the highest energy photons every seen from a gamma-ray burst.
Productive weekend. Fixed two doors, tore up some Davidiums and replaced them with Lilacs, cleaned the car, etc. PS: Why must interior door frames and hinge screws be so cheap? Both doors had the screws stripping out of the jambs. Had to take them off and pack the holes with epoxy so the screws would have something to bite into. I’m starting to think jambs should be constructed with T-nuts and use machine screws.
I love it when we cause materials and chemicals to behave in ways that violate those general understandings of how physics works.
Yes, I have a cold, it sucks, so be glad I knocked out this much. Excuse me while I use my neti pot and worship my new god, Sudafed.
