"As June 28, 2015, approaches, the Internet is once again anticipating controversy as the mathematical constant pi comes under threat from a group of detractors who will be marking "Tau Day." Tau Day’s revelers are campaigning for a constant twice as large as pi (about 6.28) to take its place, hence the June 28 celebration." - HPC
As June 28, 2015, approaches, the Internet is once again anticipating controversy as the mathematical constant pi comes under threat from a group of detractors who will be marking "Tau Day." Tau Day’s revelers are campaigning for a constant twice as large as pi (about 6.28) to take its place, hence the June 28 celebration. Tau proponents say that, for many mathematical problems, tau makes more sense and makes calculations easier.

It is "reckless to rule it out in the fight against climate change," argues British environmental campaigner Baroness Worthington.

My first impression upon entering the National Museum of Mathematics could be described as complete mathematical mayhem. Pre-teenagers were swarming dozens of exhibits in what seemed more like a huge play area than a museum dedicated to the study of an abstract science of numbers, quantity and shapes. However, as I waded in and began to understand specific exhibits, it quickly became obvious that this was a special place.

The results are important in the search for new quantum states and possible use in future electronics applications.

http://patreon.com/thorium - For an early look at Thorium Remix 2015, consider supporting development of Thorium Remix 2016.

I've been working on Thorium Remix 2015 for 4 years. Am currently editing extremely part-time. It looks like TR2015 will be completed with part-time hours, but I do need to plan for completion of TR2015 right now.

That's because these video editing tasks would absolutely benefit from full-time hours. Even after TR2015 is released on YouTube. There's YEARS of video capture, editing and narrative shaping work to do.

I'm not asking now because of any state of TR2015... I'm asking now because I should have asked sooner and have simply been too busy. But in September I'll either be editing Thorium videos with far more time, or far less time. And I'm already extremely limited for time.

Please help support these efforts via http://patreon.com/thorium , and I'll be keeping you in-the-loop regarding peer-review of early edits, and my plans to ensure the widest audience possible is exposed to Thorium, MSR & Nuclear concepts.

Religion and science are at best strange bedfellows, as the Catholic Church has found since the time of its unfortunate experience with Galileo. So it is significant that Pope Francis, who has shown great appetite for departing from some of the harsh rhetoric and methods of his predecessors, ...
