I decided to switch tracks in my project work this week. Instead of adjusting the plots I already had, I decided to try and add some new elements, notably the indirect detection bounds. I found the experimental bounds, and now needed to simulate them on the computer. I had the sum total of everything I… Continue reading Week 97: Jacqueline’s Visitors
It was time for the last week in Cambridge for a while. At the end of the week, Jacqueline and I were to head to Australia via Hong Kong to visit my grandmother and sister while my parents are away. At work, I spent the week trying to turn my plots into a moving image.… Continue reading Week 92: Preparing for Departure!
Jacqueline and I returned from Scotland in the early hours of Wednesday morning. I had been away for almost two weeks, so Wednesday was a day for catching up with everything that had happened while I had been away. This also included washing and tidying up everything that I had used on my travels. In… Continue reading Week 89: Cricket and Magdalene Formal
The week of work was defined by me trying to decipher a long series of outputted formulae from my computer program. Having a long list of equations is great, but the output format was obfuscating the underlying physics, and understanding it all was not a simple task. By the end, I had enough to go… Continue reading Week 87: Falkland Palace
Physics again had took a back seat this week, as most of my work was consumed by administrative tasks. Sometimes, it can feel as though more time is spent working on everything other than what I am actually here to work on. Nonetheless, I made it through the week without major incident. Tuesday was rather… Continue reading Week 86: Summer Approaches
Tuesday was the first day of May, which, after months of waiting, finally brought with it the proper start of the cricket season in Cambridge. After four months of training in the indoor nets at Fenner’s, the evening promised the first play outdoors on a grass pitch of the year. However, this wasn’t with the… Continue reading Week 84: Day of Research, and visitors from Australia
The week was yet again a slightly shorter one; on Thursday, Jacqueline and I were heading out to central Europe for a weekend trip. That meant that the lead up to then was spent working hard to try and get something worthwhile completed by the end of the week. The week at the Cavendish was… Continue reading Week 82: Preparing for Prague
