A few weeks ago Lena the postdoc and I had a wild and crazy night. We wore dress clothes to go to Physics Night at the Bradbury Museum in Los Alamos. Don’t be too concerned, afterwards we joined our friends at the park to drink beer, laugh, and listen to music.
Lena was late so I spent a lot of time talking to the scientists about their detectors and giant magnets. I mean that: scientist for the world record breaking 100 Tesla pulsed magnet was there doing demos and talking with kids. I also read in detail about the history of Los Alamos and the Trinity Test. Once Lena arrived, I gladly went to the brainteaser room. Those are HARD puzzles. Trust me.
