Hello everyone!

  1. Dec 26, 2014 #1
    I am new to the physics world. Having obtained an arts degree (in religion) a few years back, I am now pursuing physics in my late 20s. Any advice for this late scientific bloomer will be much appreciated (especially on any helpful literature)!!

    Thank you and I look forward to great discussions.

    Pursuing physics as a hobby? Or as formal university study?

    Either way, there are myriad threads, current and past, in the many forums here that should pique your interest. Also, you will find a wealth of intriguing demonstrations in short videos at youtube.

    You came here looking for discussions about physics? Well, your prayers have been answered! :)

    It has been a mild hobby in the past, however, at the moment I am pursuing the study in university.

    And yes, from what I have been able to see so far, this forum has been the answers to my prayers. I should probably change my picture now. :0)
