About

I am a graduate student attending the University of California, Irvine studying theoretical physics and how it relates to cosmology. I wanted to create a blog whose purpose is to bring the theoretical physics/cosmology scene, as seen from the eyes of a graduate student, to the world. My goal is to be enjoyable for both researchers as well as laymen who are interested in these fields.

A secondary goal is to blog about various things that I feel make the world a better place or issues which I feel are important.  For example, I will post often about open source movements such as Linux or the Wikipedia that have proven fundamental in creating the tools and resources essential for scientific advancement and the overall progress of mankind.

In reality, I know I will sometimes stray from these goals, but I will do my best.  Hopefully when I stray it will still be in ways of interest to the readers.  )

Thanks.

Biography: Joseph Smidt is currently a graduate student attending the University of California, Irvine seeking a Ph.D. in physics.
