The original Mr. Wizard TV Show ran from 1951 to 1965. I started watching him somewhere around 1960. His show fired my passion for physics and chemistry. He taught me about atomic fission with mousetraps and ping pong balls. He taught me about targeting and elevation with a toy dart gun and water balloons, acid/base reactions with vinegar and baking soda, barometric pressure with a card and a glass of water...

Many cool science shows are out there, but Mr. Wizard was an original.

Distribution of weight was higher on right hand which give less friction on his left hand.

Does anybody remember the late night physics classes 'brought to you by the Annenburg CPB Project' on PBS, roughly between 1:00 and 3:00 am around 1987-89 ish. Wish I could get that on DVD.

If you guys like physics I suggest you bookmark this youtuber : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC640y4 ... _WOj5U4pfA

Also, a fun read: The Dancing Wu Li Masters by Gary Zukav... I have a threadbare paperback copy.

Found it in PDF here: http://www.arvindguptatoys.com/arvindgu ... asters.pdf

I've been looking at Tardigrades on the net this morning.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tardigrade

Who knew there was such a thing? Especially 1500+ types of them.
