Maybe the miraculous is more commonplace nearer the Vatican.

"Allan hinted on his blog that an unnamed “customer” of Rossi's device is a military organization that starts with an N."

So—the Navy's got it?

I'm just popping in to say that every time I look at this thread title (Science ebook recommendations), my demented brain hears "sciencey book recommendations." I'm not sure if that changes the thread's meaning at all... but it definitely doesn't change the fact that I have nothing to contribute. Sorry.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled sciencey type stuff.

It might change things. I might suggest Scarlett Thomas's The End of Mr. Y because it talks about alternate dimensions and strange potions and maybe PopCo for it's discussions on cryptography. All sciencey kinds of things.

Flatland which is occupied by geometric figures. Women are simple line-segments, while men are regular polygons with various numbers of sides.
That's gotta be totally reversed.

I thought Flatland made for rather boring reading, but as a thought experiment, the book has enjoyed far-reaching influence.

Are you referring back to the NOVA/Greene series? 'Cause we're 14 posts past that.

Not if you're a neutrino.

Incidentally did you hear the neutrino joke:

Joke: The bartender says, "Sorry, we don't serve neutrinos here"

Punchline: This neutrino walks into a bar.
