At the beginning of 2020, I received a one-year subscription to Scientific American. I embarked on a blogging series in which I read articles about physics, and offer my commentary as a person with a PhD in physics. I may continue this series in 2021, but instead of reading articles in Scientific American, I’ll take reader requests. Just send me any articles or videos that you’d like me to discuss or explain. Requests must obey the following restrictions:
- It must be intended for popular audiences, as opposed to scholarly audiences.
- It must be about physics or adjacent to physics. I will also consider requests for math-related articles.
- I must have access to the article or video. Note, I still have a Scientific American subscription, so those are fair game.
New or old articles are welcome, and videos too. I will exercise my own discretion among qualifying requests, taking into consideration how much time it would take me to process, and how interesting I think it would be to write about. To make a request, leave a comment or e-mail me at email@example.com.
Below the fold, I have my review of the articles I’ve written about so far.
