The Kingston Legacy #7: Electron Jellyfish

51 mins - Published Fri, Apr 24, 2015 by Bryan Cord, Josh Wodarz and Robert James Algeo

Josh Wodarz and Robert Algeo welcome guest Bryan Cord to the show. Bryan tells us about his day job using high energy electron beams to manufacture small things. From there it’s just a few Dr. Manhattan jokes to wondering what else can be done with electron beams, or even how electron beams work. They take a look at why picking generic terms to describe very specific things in Astronomy is dumb, jellyfish die offs, people who stay in doomed towns (and don’t forget to follow up with CSICON’s very own Coffee with Jeff to learn more about Centralia, PA), and the mysterious sleeping sickness in Kazakhstan.

The Kingston Legacy

Every two weeks on The Kingston Legacy we talk about things that are a little weird, a little geeky, and a little geek. Most of all, we try not to take ourselves too seriously.
