This year’s Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to two scientists who predicted the existence of the “God’s particle” boson. This particle is closely connected to an Indian Physicist, Satyendra Bose. Find the connection between Satyendra Bose and the God’s particle boson, and write your thoughts about Bose, boson, Bose – Einstein connection and this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics in the comments below.
The author of the best comment will win the book “Einstein’s Cosmos: How Albert Einstein’s Vision Transformed Our Understanding of Space and Time” by Michio Kaku. Of course, after reading the book, you would understand how another Nobel Prize to three other scientists in Physics was also based on Bose’ work. The names of the next Top 10 comment authors will also be published.
Parents help, googling, reading related books: these are all allowed to prepare your comments, but the comments should be submitted by children in K-12 grades, living anywhere in United States. The winning comment needs to articulate the ideas well and should be more than a couple of unconnected sentences or a mere copy-paste of wikipedia.
The cut-off time for submission of the comments is October 18, Friday 11:59 PM. All comments will be released along with the the name of the prize winner and the names of the other top 10 comment authors on October 20, Sunday. Mathus Academy’s decision on the selection of the best comment and the other top 10 comments is final and not subject to challenge.
