My name is Joshua. I am a physics major aspiring to be a theoretical physicist. I find immense beauty in mathematics and as such post, mostly reblog, a lot of mathematics and physics. However, this still remains a personal blog, rather than being aimed at one particular subject.
"One of the most impressive discoveries was the origin of the energy of the stars, that makes them continue to burn. One of the men who discovered this was out with his girl friend the night after he realized that nuclear reactions must be going on in the stars in order to make them shine. She said “Look at how pretty the stars shine!” He said “Yes, and right now I am the only man in the world who knows why they shine.” She merely laughed at him. She was not impressed with being out with the only man who, at that moment, knew why stars shine. Well, it is sad to be alone, but that is the way it is in the world."
