Blank On The Map: Links for the week 27th May

Physics links:
  • At partner blog The Trenches of Discovery, my colleague and regular co-author Shaun has put up the 4th part of a series of blog postings on "The ISW Mystery". The earlier ones are herehere and here. This is an ambitious attempt by him to describe some research we have recently done in a manner accessible to the layman. Definitely worth a little investment of time.
  • Sean Carroll draws attention to some nice "back of the envelope" physics problems by Edward Purcell, and points out that quantum mechanics is needed to explain how our eyes work.
