I just learned that my mother had a copy of it from 1976. She got it at the Hanford Site, where she was a summer intern. (The Hanford Site is where we were refining our plutonium.)

These are my picks for the best of 2015. As usual, they could easily appear in a different order on a different day, and there are projects not on the list that were also excellent.
The individual data points of life are much less predictable than the average. Here’s a simulation that shows you how much time is left on the clock.
