Science: Answering Nature’s Mysteries Since 1543
Assorted writings by Don Lincoln
Scientia vincere tenebras
Don writes for magazines and blogs, generally translating modern particle physics and cosmology for a lay audience. He has written for NOVA, The Physics Teacher, Analog: Science Fiction and Fact, and Scientific American, as well as donated various passages for encyclopedias and similar projects. The bulk of his online writing is for a daily Fermilab periodical called Fermilab Today. He has translated research measurements for the DZero experiment and the Compact Muon Solenoid [CMS] experiment. He also writes a column called Physics in a Nutshell, which tries to give short explanations of complicated questions.
Links to these various projects can be found here.
Fermilab Today columns [Early on, these were all done by Lincoln, but now are shared with co-writer Jim Pivarski. For most of the links, the column is either center top or right top.]
