Randall Munroe Upstages WC


Randall Munroe, who draws the excellent webcomic XKCD, has posted two comics on particle physics in the last week, each upstaging WC’s pitiful attempt to explain quarks. Maybe by posting his most recent cartoon, he’ll cut WC some slack.

A wonderful, geeky summary of particle properties that only slightly overstates the jargon.

WC will throw in an unsolicited endorsement of Munroe’s delightful Thing Explainer, which attempts to explain complex science and technology using a vocabulary of 2,500 words.

[Hope this works.]
