Science Geek Moment
If you follow any science or technology news, then you know three scientists have won the Nobel Prize for their discoveries with black hole phenomena. That will either sound very cool or ho-hum depending upon who you are. For me, it's thrilling.
I'm working on a new series that's about 95% complete. Or so I thought. I'm going to dial that back to 90% only because this series depends heavily on what we know about black holes prior to their discoveries. I want to dive further into their research to see if there's anything I can add to the theories that my scientists and engineers are doing in my "black hole" series.
No worries though. I like having my work based in some sense of non-fiction without stealing all of the thrill out of a book. My goal is not to teach you about things like quantum physics or fine structure constant. However, I want to infuse enough science into my stories to make it really feel like escapist fun with exciting possibilities.
Oh, and before I forget, HUGE kudos to Dr. Andrea Ghez from UCLA. She's only the fourth woman in the history of the Nobel Prize to win the award in physics. That alone is worth celebrating. You go, girl!
