Science Culture Link Roundup (October 29, 2011)

I was awoken by the heavy autumn rain early this morning, so I might as well make use of my time awake.

In other news, I unfortunately had to turn down my spot in the NASA Tweetup for the upcoming launch of the Mars Science Laboratory (AKA Curiosity). However, please consider buying some t-shirts, stickers, or coffee mugs from the Galileo’s Pendulum shop, or (if you’re a scientist or student scientist) maybe one of my physics or math books.

  • That is the brief-yet-still-too-many-tweets answer to the question "what is dark matter?" Any questions? ;P cc @SciencEric 7 hours ago
  • But there are other possibilities, including many I don't know much about. (Dammit Jim, I'm a gravitational physicist, not a particle guy.) 7 hours ago
  • Another possibility (my favorite): axions, which are hypothetical weird low-mass particles. wp.me/p14KoQ-1ln 7 hours ago
