Hello physics people! If you’re currently enrolled in Dr. Jensen’s physics class, then this blog is for you. My goal in writing this is to give you an impression of what physics is like out at the frontiers, and what it means to actually “work” in physics. So I’ll try to cover lots of stuff, but I’ll also post some physics puzzles here from time to time that relate to areas you wouldn’t normally run into, like relativity, quantum mechanics, quantum field theory, and particle phenomena. Maybe, secretly, you’re thinking about majoring in physics and you’d like to know what it’s like. If that’s not you, that’s cool; maybe you’ll find something in here to impress your friends and confound your enemies.
