Of Science and HumourPosted: June 8, 2008
This one’s for folks who believe scientists are drab folks … no sense of humour! I am reading about dark matter here. Well … they have two categories of dark matter … Machos and Wimps … No no … these are not mere words, they even dreamt up full forms of these, making these acronyms …
MACHO: Massive Astrophysical Compact Halo Objects
WIMP: Weakly Interacting Massive Particles
Almost as though someone thought up the words, and then made the expressions?
