For the last three years, I have been training with the United States Marine Core, and now I have been called to put that training to use. For security reasons, I can’t tell you exactly where I’m going, and how long I’ll be there, but I will be gone, and most likeley unable to get to my email. For those of you that want to contact me, try to call the store first (866-470-TECH). They can pass along any contact information that they might have.
I will see you all when I return, so have a great time!
In February 1999, a team of researchers from Harvard University led by Lene Vestergaard Hau used the BEC to slow lightâ€”which normally travels at 186,000 miles per secondâ€”to just 38 miles per hour by shining a laser light through the condensate. In 2001, Hau’s team announced that it had briefly brought a light beam to a complete stop.
It’s 11am.. the phone rings. Being a considerate person, I answer the phone.
her: Hey it’s me. Did I talk to you last night?
me: (Thinks back a bit) Yes, yes we did.
her: Oh, ok. I wasn’t sure, I don’t really remember much of anything last night.
me: Oh really? I remember every word (what did we talk about anyways?)
We go back and forth a bit like this, ending up with me revealing that we had worked out some wedding plans and were going to get married sometime within the next two weeks.
her: Ok, well I’ll see you Friday then.
me: (knowing full well that we have drill on Friday) Friday? What are you doing Friday?
her: You!, hopefully.
me: Oh. Well of course. See you then.
Happy New Years. (Oh and I hope you had a Merry Xmas).
