We were reading a bedtime story, from the book “17 Equations that Changed the World” and Simon told me about how a computer disproved Euler’s Conjecture. I was surprised at … Continue reading Euler’s Conjecture

Simon explains why our modern satellite navigation (the Global Positioning System or GPS) is a great experimental proof for Einstein’s relativity theory and what would happen if the software calculated … Continue reading Newtonian GPS would place you on the wrong planet!

“Are you impressed?” – Simon asks, laughingly, and I can see it must be a pun. We are in bed, reading up on Newton’s laws of motion that talk of … Continue reading Impressions on Newton’s mechanics.
