I must offer apologies for not posting per diem as I tried to do after reading a doomsday piece about the power law associated with blog readership, but I have two separate presentations about computer security and the relationship between magmatism and crustal extension this week, a possibly fantastic statistical association. This never normally happens but I manage to inadvertently cause it, so I can't complain.
Nova aired last week "The Ghost Particle", simply the best episode of Nova in the past five years. This was a science story that explained neutrinos and Pauli's proposal for them in the excess energy from beta particle (aka electron) emission, the first detection from a nuclear reactor from Reines and Cowan, and the fantastic Homestake Mine experiment from Ray Davis Jr., and John Bahcall's theoretical calculations that pushed the experiment foreward into the modern three flavored neutrino theory. Davis' son, Andrew, is a scientist here at Chicago who cofounded the Chicago Center for Cosmochemistry.
P.S. The link to the Ghost Particle goes to the producer's page rather than the main page because he lists the rules in making a compelling story, although he believed in possibly keeping it too simple--keeping the idea of a neutron out of the atom's nucleus in the animations for the nuclear reactions was in my opinion unnecessary. But still, bravo to you, a fantastic Nova.
