Cosmos Recap: We Bet You Didn't Understand All The Stuff About Spectroscopy Either
This week's episode of Cosmos, "Hiding In The Light," is all about light and the spectrum, and how an assortment of scientists came to understand something about how light works. This episode seemed somehow shorter and jumpier than others in the series, though I'm not sure I can put a finger on why -- maybe it's just that there's no single moment in this week's outing that prompted an "Oh, WOW" as in some of the earlier outings. Even so, it's still Neil deGrasse Tyson doing history of science, so that makes up for a lot.
Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
