Physicists Having Fun – and they do!

May 27, 2011

Who hasn’t heard of Angry Birds? But mostly, people just play it, right?

Not a physicist.

What too many people don’t understand about  science is that understanding how something works actually enhances appreciation. You don’t just accept things. You play with them, explore them, and then go on to learn, play, and explore with related things. And there’s the whole universe to poke about in – you’ll never run out of wild, weird, and wonderful things to learn. Exciting is too mild a word – amazing! Stupendous!

Myths are pretty (or terrifying, if used to enforce obedience), but understanding is beautiful. And in this case, amusing as well.
