Rejoice, my fellow fans of Manh(a)ttan (a.k.a. “Fanhattans”), for this critically acclaimed fledgling series on WGN America has been renewed for a second season, just in time for the season finale (“Perestroika”).
It was Ada Lovelace Day this past week, So Here’s The Life And Times Of Ada Lovelace, The First Computer Programmer. Related: Beyond Emmy (Noether) and Sophie (Germain): Resources for Learning about Women in Math. Also: Take the Guardian‘s quiz: how much do you know about women in science?
Secrets have a way of coming out, one way or the other, despite one’s best efforts to contain them, and boy howdy, do they ever on the penultimate episode of Manh(a)ttan.
It was the Nobel Prize announcement that launched a thousand “How many physicists does it take to change a light bulb?” jokes on twitter.
Relationships are fraying right and left, with betrayal, after betrayal after betrayal, this week on Manh(a)ttan, as we kick off the first (“Tangier”) of the final three episodes of the season.
There are just three episodes left for Season 1 of WGN America’s most excellent new series, Manh(a)ttan — or as Jen-Luc Piquant has taken to calling it, The Best New Show You’re Not Watching.
While everyone’s biding their time for next week’s Nobel prize announcements — and in some cases, indulging in some speculative predictions — scientific progress marches on.
Excitement is building — at least in science circles — for the upcoming announcements of the 2014 Nobel Prizes, along with the inevitable speculation about who might be among this year’s winners.
The beleaguered physicists in Frank Winter’s group finally get some good news on the implosion front in this week’s episode of Manh(a)ttan.
The big physics news this week was the announcement of the long-awaited results from the Planck missions — and the news is not good for the BICEP2 collaboration: the Study Confirmed Criticism of BICEP2′s original Big Bang Finding. They may have had space dust in their eyes.
