"The narrator mentions that this diagonal slice was not "discovered" till 2007. That is inaccurate. That slice was on exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago years earlier."
Back in April I was contacted about the use of one of my Apophysis images, "String Theory", in EXACTAmente magazine. The magazine is "...a free popularization of science magazine edited by the Faculty of Natural Sciences, of the University of Buenos Aires", says Juan Pablo Vittori, the person who contacted me. He also says, "EXACTAmente is a magazine that is meant for secondary school teachers, so it is freely sent to 2000 high-schools in Buenos Aires in printed version.
Below is a Google translation (Spanish to English)of the opening paragraph of the magazine...
Physicists practitioners of string theory are perhaps those with greater and more sophisticated talents to handle a fascinatingly complex formalism. researchers other branches can hardly penetrate with solvency, not in the details, but in core concepts of a theory that is as science and mathematics but about their goal of being natural science generates divided.
Also, `Casperium had one of her images appear in the article. The image that appears is similar to her 2006 image that is also titled "String Theory." And here's a thumb of my image of the same title...

Yeah, I'm still missing in action. I did get my second book published on Amazon though! And of course I wanted to thank everyone who bought a copy of the first one. I've been on DA for about three years and not sold a single piece of art here. (I will keep trying!) I've sold about a dozen books thus far so I felt it was worth the effort to get the second one published.
The new book is called Standard Affair: A science fiction adventure. Here's a little description of it. Standard Affair is a science fiction adventure that takes you away from earth and gives you your first taste of contact with advanced alien races. A morsel that may just leave a bad taste in your mouth. Owen Ricks, a retired military officer, is unwillingly thrust into the role of ambassador of earth when he hitches a ride on a disabled space craft that he helps repair. Though he is an uninvited guest, his training proves useful and the captain of the ship enlists his help as a bounty hunter of a different kind than what you might expect. It doesn't take Owen long to realize that the captain is being less than honest with him. While constantly being reminded by the captain that earth humans are backwards and uncivilized, Owen sees it differently and has to learn how to deal with aliens that can be just as devious and cruel as earth humans. This book is around 65,000 words, a short novel.
I don't write 'hard' science fiction, so the stories in this book are not tech heavy. Most of them do however incorporate my warped sense of humor and sarcasm. A few are a bit dark, but for the most part, they should put a smile on a readers face, or if I'm lucky, make them chuckle. There are 16 short stories that total around 60,000 words. (About equivalent to a 200+ page novel). I also have a collection of horror shorts in the works as well as another completed science fiction novel. Here's a link to Waves In Time if you want to check it out.
For those who don't own a Kindle, you can get a Kindle reader for the PC free. (Kindle for PC) A lot of people don't know there are many free Kindle books as well.
I just thought I would toot my own horn (again) real quick here. The reason I've been missing the past two weeks is that I was in a fractal dry spell. I then decided it was a perfect time to gather up a collection of my Sci-fi short stories and get them published for the Kindle at Amazon.com. After many hours of finishing up a couple of stories, re-writing others and then editing them all, (several times) I finally uploaded Waves In Time yesterday.

I enrolled in a special program where I can offer the book for free, and still make a little from a special fund Amazon has set up for authors, but I don't know when I'm going to do that yet.
