Walkabout the Galaxy

Lithium is not just in demand for all those new electric car batteries, it seems there's a problem with missing lithium in the universe. We explore the Cosmological Lithium Problem, take a look at what tree rings and the sea floor have to tell us about Earth's space environment, and take a deep dive into wormholes for our trivia.
If you're looking for the perfect gift for that special someone in your life, who doesn't just like things to be neat, but demands that all things are in order and in their proper place, get super symmetry. Don't leave electrons hanging alone out there in the cold, get them the selectron so that there is order, and, you guessed it, symmetry in the universe and in your home. With a boson for every fermion, an integer spin particle for every half an integer spin particle, shop super symmetry to get a super gift for your super partner. Get the optional quantum field theory, which come with general relativity at no extra charge, and super charge your universe with super symmetry. Super symmetry, are we not drawn onward, we few, drawn onward to new era?
