2019-05-21T20:31:44Z via NavierStokes To: PublicToday I wrote a draft of an internal ATLAS note. So happy academic summer is here. Next up: undergrad research proposal, edit a PhD thesis, and finish two teaching guides.

2019-05-20T23:31:13Z via NavierStokes To: PublicI first met Olga on the Babar Experiment. In a sense, both of us "grew up together" on that project, and then both of us eventually moved to the LHC and @ATLASexperiment. She is dearly missed. https://twitter.com/_nikhef/status/1130517531792486402
2019-05-20T23:31:13Z via NavierStokes To: PublicClearly, facilities got to work today! I was cooking in my office until about noon, when suddenly the cooling system in the building came back to life. Approaching acceptable now! I love data. https://twitter.com/drsekula/status/1130615001671245824/photo/1
Eye eye, Captain

2019-05-02T00:00:58Z via NavierStokes To: PublicThursday is my last teaching day of the semester, and will also be my last “Last Lecture” for introductory mechanics for a while. Let’s talk about the lives of stars and the death of a universe. 09:30, Fondren Science 123. https://twitter.com/drsekula/status/1123737958195048450/photo/1

2019-04-25T12:01:55Z via NavierStokes To: PublicHahahahaha! My building hates me. Physics question: which law of thermodynamics is our building thumbing its nose at when it heats my office to 82F in the middle of the night? :-) https://twitter.com/drsekula/status/1121382555889078272/photo/1
2019-04-25T11:54:13Z via NavierStokes To: PublicFrom lbaudis on Twitter: For the first time, we observed the two-neutrino double electron capture process in 124-Xe with @Xenon1T data, with an incredibly long half-life of 1.8 x 10^22 years. This half-life is many orders of magnitude larger than the age of our Universe, which is about 1.4 x 10^10 years. https://twitter.com/lbaudis/status/1121098153216835584/photo/1
2019-04-25T11:54:11Z via NavierStokes To: PublicFrom AstroTunnell on Twitter: On @XENON1T, we just made a discovery by measuring the process of double-electron capture with a half-life longer than the age of the Universe (18,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 years).
