If you haven’t heard of these psychological studies before you might be surprised at the results.

A great Sixty Symbols video on the spiral galaxy NGC 6872 recently named the ‘biggest spiral galaxy’. It features Professor Michael Merrifield from the University of Nottingham. He’s awesome, I like him a lot. I wish I had the opportunity to learn astronomy from him. That would have been most awesome.
Not much to say about that… it’s pretty freaking straightforward. Except… maybe… SCIENCE! Feel the awesome!
Bam! Feel the awesome! Science winning.
*BLAM* Feel the awesome! Richard FEYNMAN!
It’s a bit from Feynman’s quantum electrodynamics lectures at the Auckland University.
Blam! Feel the awesome!
Thanks to The Thinking Atheist for the incredible awesome. Seth Andrews for the win!

Booya! Richard Feynman!
The man has a massive aura of awesome about him. I wish I had met him.
