Four Quarks for Muster Mark (used to be three quarks - but everything's gone up these days!).

Physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider have spotted a long sought-after exotic particle that's the strongest evidence yet for a new form of matter called a tetraquark. Here's what the discovery could mean to astrophysics.

Short review for The Winter Soldier:  Joins first Iron Man and The Avengers as the best of the Marvel Universe.  I loved the first Captain America film, but this one has more plot, and a ton of pure comic book action.  This scene is one of my favorites - as pure a transfer of Captain America to the screen as I would have thought possible.

Cos-Play is the Best Play!  (Really there was only one Flash - but persistence of vision, you know!)

This past weekend saw Emerald City Comic-Con in Seattle, WA. And the cosplay was both creative and clever, judging from these photos by photographer Anthony May with Anthony May Photography. Gender-swapped Doctor Doom! Father-son Bat-villains! And so much more. See for yourself...

The Triple Point: The temperature and pressure where gas, liquid and solid can thermodynamically co-exist!

http://io9.com/what-makes-this-substance-boil-and-freeze-at-the-same-t-1554777563
A mystery fluid is placed in a container and all the air is removed. The substance begins to freeze and boil at the same time. So what's going on?
