Hi there. I started Quantum Gag in an attempt to bridge the gap between science and the general public. While not a scientist myself, I strongly believe you don’t need a long education to appreciate the wonders of the mathematical world, or the mysteries of the cosmos. Sadly, a lot of people find science obscure and too difficult to bother with. Even worse, some think it’s useless and a waste of money: Why are we spending billions to go to the moon? Personally, I’d like to strangle these people, but it’s not their fault. Being a scientist does not necessarily mean that you can communicate the importance of science to a lay audience, though there have been (and still are) some giants like Carl Sagan, Richard Feynman, Jacob Bronowski, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Richard Dawkins and Bill Nye.
In an age of technology it is suicidal to neglect a basic understanding of how the world works. Almost everything around you is either created or understood because of science. In a pathetic attempt to do my bit, I will blog as much as I can and show you that science can be fun as well as important. If I can understand it, then so can you.
