As Austinites tuck themselves into bed, the first Chilean miners emerge from the earth via the tight rescue cage. An amazing night!
Over the weekend, during a mini-study break (that is, procrastination moment) I sorted my Gmail messages by date and started reviewing the earliest messages on this account.
Are we still celebrating Columbus Day?
Whoa, I thought I was busy.
Just wanted to give respect to Andre Geim and K.S. Novoselov for winning the Nobel Prize in physics for their work on Graphene, a one-atom thick network of Carbon atoms. They helped pioneer the field of materials research and nanotechnology that is quickly becoming a hot topic in science today.
Last weekend was really relaxing since the week before that was a very hectic exam week in most of my classes. I didn’t go to ACL after going last year for a number of reasons, but I wish I had gotten a one-day pass for Saturday to see the xx and Muse. Anyways, I’ll hopefully go next year.
