Currently I am reading Ira Flatow’s book “Present at the Future” and have found it an interesting collection of topics. What is especially invigorating is the velocity of change in the field of science since this book has been written. In some areas the author accurately predicts the results of certain experiments (that have recently been completed). Events such as Climate-gate, the Collider coming online, and Dark matter research are all bringing new information to light.
I found a couple neat references for those reading this book:
- Dark Matter Discovery or at least “maybe” – Article on Next Big Future
- Video on proving Ink + Paper + Nanotubes = BATTERY!
I will update this post as additional relevant items catch my attention. All in all very exciting to see science moving beyond theory.
