I have to admit that it took some time until I understood the idea of the "Philosophia Naturalis Blog Carnival", even more so as the actual blog just contains links to posts at different other blogs. This idea of these "philosophia naturalis" contributions, hosted by a different blog every month, is to publish a collection of interesting posts on topics in the physical sciences that have appeared over the last month. Thus, they provide a selection of noteworthy reading out there, and help to give you an overview over interesting blogs dealing with physics and related topics.
This month's Philosophia Naturalis #11 is hosted by geologist Chris Rowan at Highly Allochthonous, and I am very proud to see this blog represented by both its contributors - with Bee on Kaluza-Klein, and myself about the Bouncing Neutrons!
If you have time to waste over the weekend, there may be worse possibilities to do so than reading some of the posts presented by Chris so cogently according to the 50 orders of magnitude of characteristic length scales they cover. I've enjoyed especially the writings from astronomy and the earth sciences. Indeed, if you are a wannabe amateur geologist like me, you will probably like Chris' blog anyway, and wonder why you have not chosen a subject where you can make cool field trips to Namibia...
Have a nice weekend!
