Physics Pieces (Part 3)

It's a new month!

This is going to be a short piece since I've already reported on some of the talks from last week. There was a talk by Jacques Laskar from IMCCE in Paris. Unfortunately I missed this one but there is a video that he showed at the end of the talk.

Joanna Haigh from Imperial College London gave a talk about how changes in the sun affect climate. The prevalence of sunspots has a 11-year cycle of fluctuations, and recent data has suggested a spectral distribution quite different from what is usually assumed.

  1. This reminds me that sunblock and sunscreen lotions are different. Many manufactureres confuse the terminology.
