How Do We Know:

Fun Stuff:

So, what's this site all about? After thinking about it for more years than I like to admit, I have come to the conclusion that science can be looked at as the asking, and answering, of a simple question:

How do you know?

This view of science brings the constant questioning that is so important to science to the fore.

There are lots of places on the web where you can find authoritative information on an amazing array of subjects. But none of them look at things in quite the way I wanted to so I'm just going to do it myself. The entries will use links to allow readers to skip certain details that others want to read. There will also be lots of links to external sites as well as animations to demonstrate concepts that are easier to see than read about.

In my wildest dreams this site will grow far beyond my ability to produce or support it. Until then I'll post entries on topics that I think are especially interesting or informative. I also hope that readers will suggest topics via email.
