  • Imagine you are sipping tea or coffee while discussing various issues with a broad and diverse network of students, colleagues, and friends brought together by the common bond of physics, graduate school, and the physics GRE.

To Get The Hell Out Of India

(Not to be taken seriously of course. It's moderately funny, and ties in with some of the, uh, "discussions" that have taken place here...)

Approved. Songs like that transcend cultural barriers and bring people everywhere together in a common cause...

Perhaps NSF funding cuts have a bright side...

I checked the PPPL website yesterday and I see they've decided to cancel the Stellerator project they've been working on for 5 years due to time delays and insufficient funds. Makes me sad. This just adds to the worries I have about whether this was a promising career path to take... When I toured their facilities, it was inspiring to see teams of enginners, technicians and physicists building the coils for this project, and I feel bad that they'll never get to see the thing run :(...
