A great thought!CarlB said:My feeling is that if you can't explain the basic underlying principle of your theory to a high school student, it may not be wrong, but it will not be the final theory.
TWP stands for The World of Physics, a popular physics blog run by physicist and mathematician John Baez. NEW stands for Not Even Wrong, a blog that focuses on theoretical physics and mathematics.
Baez started TWP in 2006 as a way to share his love for physics and mathematics with a wider audience. He later joined forces with mathematician Peter Woit to create NEW in 2004.
TWP and NEW cover a wide range of topics in physics and mathematics, including quantum mechanics, general relativity, string theory, and more. Baez and Woit also often discuss current events and controversies in the field.
The target audience for TWP and NEW is anyone with an interest in physics and mathematics. Baez and Woit aim to make complex concepts and theories accessible to a general audience through their writing.
Yes, Baez and Woit often feature guest posts from other experts in the field of physics and mathematics. Some of the most notable contributors include mathematician Terry Tao and physicist Luboš Motl.
