Hamsters, Icecream & Cats

Love this podcast, they literally do break everything in the universe down, so far they've broken it down into up & down quarks, electrons, neutrinos & space dolphins. I get concerned that Daniel does like to compare Jorge to his equivalent number of protons, neutrons & electrons in icecream on occasion (it's just the arrangement, honestly) & how often a hamster may be jettisoned into a black hole but it is nice to hear Jorge frequently defend cats. If you ever wanted a short justification for why we need to fund blue sky science, this is it - because they'll tell you what we don't know, what we do know, why we should know it & what are just engineering problems
