Welcome to our second meeting!  Per our group discussion last time, we are starting with some background info.  Please use the suggested resources as a guide; feel free to get crazy, learn more, and share.

 

Not sure how much this combination of topics makes sense...but it's all good stuff, so I guess we'll see how it goes.  Maybe we'll get through it all, and maybe we won't.

 

Please let me know if you care to present on any of these :)

 

Depending on how my own learning/googling goes, this list may expand.

 

Black-Body Radiationhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black-body_radiation

General Relativityhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Introduction_to_general_relativity

"A Universe from Nothing"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjaGktVQdNg&feature=player_embedded

    The meeting was great and we're getting more organized, but even unorganized it's a great group of very enthusiastic science lovers!

    This video shows why any discussion on Quantum Mechanics will need to be very open (including dialog on the role both individual and universal consciousness plays). The experts themselves can't agree on the many different interpretations of it. http://io9.com/5981842/why-quan...­
