Quantumaniac is where it’s at - and by ‘it’ I mean awesome.

Over here I post a ton of physics / math / general interesting posts in an attempt to make your brain feel good. My aim is to be as informative as possible, all while posting fascinating things that hopefully enlighten us both a little to the mysteries of our truly wondrous universe(s?). Plus, how would you know if the blog exists or not unless you observe it? Boom, just pulled the Schrödinger’s cat card. Now you have to check it out - trust me, it said so in an equation somewhere.

Happy Birthday Mr. Rogers! 

Fred Rogers (March 20, 1928 – February 27, 2003) would’ve turned 85 years old today. Most famous for his children’s television show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, which ran for over three decades, Fred Rogers was nothing short of a hero. Although not a scientist, we feature his birthday here because there are few examples of individuals quite like him - ones who were able to inspire children and adults alike to be curious, kind and tolerant of those around them. His message was as beautiful as his program, and his persona on-and-off camera were the same wonderfully compassionate human being. 

Here’s a video that Mental Floss and John Green did on Mr. Roger’s life. 

A quote:

"As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has—or ever will have—something inside that is unique to all time. It’s our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression."
