Ian Robinson's Weekly Digest - 18th July 2021

Ian Robinson's Weekly Digest - 18th July 2021
By Ian Robinson's Weekly Digest • Issue #22 • View online
A sparse post this week. Mainly due to me being busy and it being too hot to read and think about technical stuff! Only three pointers to interesting items. A dozen new music items, though. I’m never too busy or too hot to ignore new music. As always, find me on Twitter if you want to comment on anything.

Science
Physics: A Video Tour of the Standard Model - Quanta Magazine - Link
Another excellent video from Quanta Magazine. This one outlines the particles in the Standard Model of Particle Physics.
Astronomy: Gravity on different Solar System bodies - Dr. James O'Donoghue - Link
Have you ever wondered how quickly a ball dropped on the other Solar System bodies would fall compared to its speed on the Earth? This nice short animation graphic by Dr. James O'Donoghue will let you know!
Culture
Books: Cixin Liu’s The Three-Body Problem Is Now a Podcast - Tor.com - Link
I’ve been putting off this very highly regarded novel by Cixin Liu. It’s being adapted for TV by the creators of Game of Thrones. Now there is an audio adaptation being released in podcast form. Excellent. I’ll grab that!
