I feel famous

June 28, 2008

This article from Seed magazine last month describes some really awesome new experiments attempting to test the fuzziness of quantum philosophy, particularly if reality exists. Even neater than the fact that these tests are possible is how much this resembles my life. I feel like a big kid.
“In the middle of the cramped space is a floating metal surface, about the size of a banquet table, latticed with drill holes. A forest of black optical equipment, like monocles atop tiny poles, seems to grow out of the table. Beam splitters resemble exact, glass die. In the center is an encased crystal that is not visible, and on the ends sit idle lasers.”
That’s my lab. Here’s a picture of the kid the article features:

See all that equipment in front of him? That’s what I do. Lenses, mirrors, power meters and crystals, we work with the same stuff. I feel so special *beams*.

    lol, the fact that it was unintentional makes it even funnier, I think.

    How’s your laser doing?
    More importantly, how was your visit with Ross?
