Current Reading

This blog is primarily for me to blog my responses to books that I'm reading. Sometimes I blog about other stuff too, though.

I'm currently sort of reading Two New Sciences by Galileo; I may or may not get around to blogging about it.

I'm also sort of reading From Sight to Light: The passage from ancient to modern optics by A. Mark Smith. Again, I may or may not get around to blogging about it.

Bullship

If I'm reading pages 228-229 correctly, Galileo never actually dropped a rock from the top of the mast of a ship, and is just asserting what the outcome of the experiment must be.  That is...not what I was expecting from Galileo.
