Hello peeps. Back to writing this week and today, I am going to start off by sharing something which I recently got my eyes on. Quantum physics, as you might have heard, is the science of very small particles. Classical physics tells us what happens on large scale, about the motion of stars and planets and how they work. Quantum physics tells us about what happens on a very small scale, where classical physics does not seem to work.
One day while scrolling my Twitter feed, I came to know about this story about Erwin Schrödinger, the father of quantum physics. Quoting futurism.com, “A recent investigation that resurfaces damning evidence that famed physicist Erwin Schrödinger was a pedophile is continuing to make waves in the academic community”.
Erwin Schrödinger, widely known for his work on quantum physics and about his famous “cat experiment” in 1935 was a sexual predator and serial abuser the story said. I will link the article here for you guys to read, but this story has made me rethink our society. Sexual abuse and harassment remain one of the most dangerous crimes the world is tackling on daily basis, this story about how one of the most influential scientists of the 20th century being a sexual abuser has made me think how little we know about people outside of media and what is being told about them. To sum up,
In other news, James Webb Space Telescope’s primary mirror wings have been deployed and it continues its journey to the 2nd Lagrange point. Over the next few months, Webb will continue to cool down its components to operating temperatures. Quoting NASA, “In the meantime, there are several smaller deployments in the next couple of weeks, which constitute the beginning of a several-month phase of aligning the telescope’s optics. This week, we have started the process of moving the mirror segments (all primary plus secondary) out of their stowed launch positions.”
I am writing this on Microsoft Word, and it feels so good how smooth the typing is. I previously used to write directly on WordPress writer or on online notepads, sometimes even on OpenOffice writer. But nothing is as smooth as this thing. Complete butter.
