United States: two ends of the intellectual spectrum.

A physics note: Englert and Higgs won the Nobel Prize for physics for their work on how particles acquire mass (by passing through a field).

Ying/Yang of living in the United States of America

On one hand: we have MIT. Here, scientists have developed a new type of self-assembling robot.

At Livermore Lab: scientists have gotten nuclear fusion past the break even point (more energy released than used to start the reaction to begin with.

So, on the coasts, some interesting science research.

But in the halls of Congress: we have a US Representative (Michele Bachmann) babbling about “end times”. Yes, there are millions of Americans who don’t find such talk “crazy”. Sigh.
