Tyndall project gets funded

I am part of an international project to transcribe, edit, and publish the letters of the Irish physicist John Tyndall. We received good news this week and are now funded by the National Science Foundation for at least two years. This puts me in the position to hire two graduate (or honors) students for the next two years. May the games commence!

  1. That’s big! Congrats. If it would help in any way, I’m willing to come by and do dramatic readings of your translations in a stereotypical leprechaun voice. I find it makes the physics more accessible.

  2. Congratulations. My only association with Tyndall is having read his biography of Faraday for an event at the Science Museum of Minnesota several years ago.
