Walkabout the Galaxy
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
As Top Quark likes to say, "You wouldn't understand: it's an early universe thing". That's why he's so excited that there's a new window into the goings on at the dawn of time by using HD. No, not high definition displays, but Hydrogen Deuteride! Oh boy, do we have fun with Deuteride on this episode. We also take a look at the crazy shuffling of planets in our own solar system, and much more.
The Laws of Thermodynamics
If you're not sure how to get your entropy and energy temperature in order, just pull out the new and improved Laws of Thermodynamics, neatly divided into four easily digestible sections. From the zero flaws light-hearted definition of thermoequilibrium, to the second law's soul-crushing explanation for the inevitable heat death of the universe, the laws of thermodynamics have it all. Fitting easily in your purse or pocket, and taking up negligible space on your digital storage device, never leave home without the compact, indispensable classic The Laws of Thermodynamics, invented for life (Bosch).
