Welcome to ScienceBits

4 cm in diameter hail. Read all about it in the Jumbo Deluxe Hail blog entry.
A random (and subjective) walk in science and physics in particular.

In the blog and bits sections, you'll find various interesting science related anecdotes you'll find nowhere else (e.g., an exhaled breath condensation calculator, or a snow probability calculator), and also things you will (such as a pension calculator written for my needs).

In the Research section, you'll find articles which are more directly related to my personal research in astrophysics and more, in particular, on the role of cosmic rays behind climate variability.

The site began on Apr 1st, 2006. Almost all of the content here is quite original. During the first month, items which were originally written for other purposes will be migrated here. Afterwards, the content should increase linearly with time.

If there are any comments about the site you would like to post, feel free to post them here.

If you really like the site (and if you don't), you can subscribe to it through FeedBurner

Note, you're more than welcome to post comments, however due to some flooding by spam (mostly for v-pills), some precautions were placed. There are now two options to place comments:
  1. Anonymous comments, using a captcha and moderation (i.e., after I verify and approve that the content is legit.)
  2. Register/login using a captcha, and then comment without a captcha. If the comment appears legit., the next comments will not require any approval
