about bp's science

< v.1

        v.2 >

The other night, Jess and I caught a NOVA on PBS that talked about super fluids, the Bose-Einstein condensate, and how utilizing the principles of PV=nRT is keeping the permafrost in Alaska cold.  It was fascinating.  Very fascinating.  I certainly didn't grasp all of it, but it got me excited and then I decided something.

You may recall a time when I did a science post on this blog every once and a while (on Tuesdays) and then stopped. When discussing the whole thing with a few people I found out they were disappointed.  Disappointed that I'd let the internet community stop me from doing something that I liked doing.  Especially when I had never claimed to be the science source.  Others mentioned that they missed bp's science.  That was great to hear.

Still, if most people don't miss the posts, I do. So bp's science is coming back baby.  I call the past posts version 1 (v.1) and the future new posts version 2 (v.2).  There will be some great stuff.  And lest we forget, each post will be accompanied by this lovely disclaimer (crafted by my in-house pro):
