I stumbled across a link the other day, posted to Facebook by a friend of mine, entitled “the 9 kinds of physics seminar“. And my gosh. It strikes the nail perfectly on the head. I feel compelled to re-post 4 of them here. Specifically the 4 which strike most of a chord with me. However, you really should go to read the original article for explanations and the other 5. If you go to a sufficient number of talks in any kind of physical science (trust me, chemistry talks are just the same), you’ll probably find these eerily familiar.
Supernova Condensate is a blog about our place in the Universe. Of astronomy, chemistry and life in the big bad bubble of academia.
Invader Xan is a molecular astrophysicist and part-time alien invader, who spends life looking at very small things on very large scales, and trying to better understand the chemistry of interstellar space.
