Hello, those of you who are visiting from Television Without Pity. This is not really a science blog, nor is it a television blog, but I do sometimes go on about both. For atomic bomb discussion beyond the bit where I grumble about Jericho, you might be interested in Child of the Cold War, which discusses how growing up with the threat of nuclear annihilation made Jericho‘s pilot seem better to me than it really was. There’s also the original report from the Manhattan Project scientists determining that a nuclear bomb wouldn’t destroy the entire world.
For all-around science neepery:
- Object permanence is more tricky than we thought
- Vaccines don’t cause autism
- My experience with an honest-to-goodness creationist science fair project
And for those of you who are regular readers and are right now saying, “er?”, TWoP linked to me for my Jericho rants.
