I'm glad you think so. I agree.
I think "popular science"....that is....science written in terms that a non
technically educated person can understand.....and Science Fiction (Hard
SF...not fantasy) are crucial in this regard....
I think television fails miserably...
I eagerly read "Engines of Creation"...and the sequel...as well as "mambo
chicken" and anything else i could find on MNT....I haven't seen anything
But anyway...what you were saying about nitro bricks...
Basicly it would work but it would just cost too much?
