Nobel Physics Prize

Posted on | October 19, 2009 | 3 Comments

I’m a little late, but I had to say ‘Yay’ for part of the Nobel Physics prize going to Willard Boyle and George Smith who developed the CCD (charged coupled device) in 1969, without which, we would not have our beloved digital cameras.

    What, no comments? Connie, I don’t know nothin’ ’bout no physics, but I am the office in the Physics Dept at a small university! I love my physicists! Physicists rock! Part of the reason I subscribed to your feed was because I read that you were a physics person!

    Crap. I’m the office assistant. Not the office. Sheesh.

    A delightful (and expected) comment — my son wants to study physics, and if you go to a lecture at Princeton Plasma Physics (or other venues), I am the one sitting there next to the teenager, knitting.
