Quantum blog tunneling August 7, 2008Posted by Will Thomas in Uncategorized.
In quantum mechanics, there’s this phenomenon called quantum tunneling, where a particle behind a barrier can spontaneously reappear on the other side of the barrier in the same way radioactive material can spontaneously emit radiation. While I’ve been away on an informative-but-tiring interview trip, this blog seems to have tunneled into new sectors of the history of science community and the science blogosphere thanks to the recent Isis series.
So, some reflection on the series and a round-up of internet reactions to the Isis Focus Series is forthcoming, but probably not until later this weekend. New visitors, welcome and we hope you stick around.
