Recently, the author of one of my favorite books, Martin Gardner, passed away. I was sorry to hear this. Ambidextrous Universe has always topped my list of favorite books, as it addresses almost everything I have ever wondered about and love, including molecular physics, astrophysics, even poetry. It does so in such an enthralling way, one that has made me think further in so many ways; the subjects that Gardner address are all things that I daydream about in between the hours, mirrors and symmetry included, and my daydreams have turned into something a lot more constructive due to, I believe, his work and thoughts.
So in the event of his passing, I'd like to take more than a few moments to remember him.
(and this site finally looks less like a glitzy Myspace page and more like a site. phew.)
Pics from Tahoe along with a few other goodies should be up soon.
