The sixth edition of Philosophia Naturalis is out, published by Charles Daney on his Science and Reason blog. It’s a ‘carnival’ of interesting writing in the weblog format, pointing to writing by diverse and sundry authors on the physical sciences and technology.
Carnivals like this one seem to be gaining popularity, a welcome thing because they offer pointers to sites I hadn’t known about, and the topics are always interesting. Good coverage of the American Astronomical Society meeting shows up here, along with work on dark matter, the Antikythera Mechanism, and a wonderful explanation of light cones and Einsteinian relativity. I’m pleased that Philosophia Naturalis includes two recent posts on the James Webb Space Telescope from these pages.
