Artist Olek yarn-bombs Albert Einstein Memorial

Here is the link between Albert Einstein and crochet artist Olek: the National Academy of Science’s Albert Einstein Memorial has been covered in pink and purple crocheted fabric! Sophie Gilbert, in her article published on The Washingtonian, explains: Olek is in town for the Renwick Museum’s “40 Under 40: Craft Futures” exhibition, which features her as one of the most creative contemporary craft artists born since 1972 (when the Renwick was founded). Olek says Einstein, for her, was an easy choice since he was such a creative thinker himself. “I thought he might have a sense of humor about it,” she says. Sadly, DC didn’t—Olek’s work was removed within hours. In March, Max Dana posted: Miss Van’s Dolls, tattooed and ‘crocheted’, showing the work done by Olek on Miss Van’s sexy characters with Olek’s work put on the face of a doll. I like Olek’s work, you can follow her on Twitter and visit her website to learn more about the artist. Who would have known crochet could be so creative?

Neutrinos can’t beat speed of light

It is now official: neutrino researchers admit Albert Einstein was right. Mark Brown, Wired UK, writes: Back in September 2011, a team of particle physicists detected neutrinos moving faster than the speed of light as they traveled from CERN to the Gran Sasso lab. They smashed the universal speed limit by 60 nanoseconds — a result that was constant, even after 15,000 repetitions of the process. The results seem to run counter to a century’s worth of physics and would overturn Einsten’s special theory of relativity if true. As such, CERN called for more experiments to double-check the findings. […] At the International Conference on Neutrino Physics and Astrophysics in Kyoto on June 8, CERN research director Sergio Bertolucci presented results on the travel time of neutrinos from CERN to the INFN Gran Sasso Laboratory, on behalf of four experiments — Borexino, Icarus, LVD and Opera. All four experiments measured a neutrino time of flight that was below the speed of light, confirming that neutrinos respect Einstein’s cosmic speed limit. The previous anomaly was “attributed to a faulty element of the experiment’s fibreoptic timing system.” If you don’t get why it would have been a big deal to prove Einstein’s…
