The 20th century was a period rich in advancing our knowledge of quantum mechanics, shaping modern physics. Our newest module, Atomic Theory III, covers ideas and refinements that built on Bohr’s groundbreaking work in quantum theory. Contributions by many scientists highlight how theoretical insights and experimental results revolutionized our understanding of the atom. Concepts include the Schrödinger equation, Born’s three-dimensional probability maps, the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, and electron spin.

According to research out of MIT, a plume of magma 80 million years ago created a volcanic jet of material underneath India, which the subcontinent could effectively “surf” at high speed to smash into Eurasia.     #geoscience

Enjoying this audio version of Joyce's Ulysses from the Internet Archive.  The readers really bring the text to life and help to make the novel accessible.

Love this little anecdote from the Key West Literary Seminar (theme: “Writers on Writers”) by poet Jay Parini:

"Parini began the evening with several poems inspired by his encounters with other writers, one of the earliest being Jorge Luis Borges. As a young poet studying in Scotland, Parini was charged with entertaining the aging, nearly-blind Argentine for a couple of days. Parini’s poem told of how, as the two walked through a rookery in the countryside, Borges heard the crows overhead and, his expression shifting and becoming distant, he essentially became the cawing birds."

Wonderful and wacky author self-portraits.  Hunter S. Thompson was quite handsome and Borges had a strange way of depicting himself.

Probably one of the best stories I've read in a while - Brief Interviews with Hideous Men by the late David Foster Wallace.
