A Cartoon Guide to the Fascinating Realm of Physics
"Quirky Quarks, also aimed at the general public, thrives on the physics explanations given by two physicists - Benjamin Bahr and Boris Lemmer - alongside the cartoons of Rina Piccolo. The cartoons in Quirky Quarks are creative and entertaining images that illustrate some aspect of physics. Most scientists would probably find them enjoyable. ... great for science enthusiasts and those interested in the general ideas of science without overwhelming the reader with the details." (Rhett Allain, Nature Physics, Vol. 12, June, 2016)
Dr. Benjamin Bahr is a quantum gravity researcher at the University of Hamburg, Germany. He and his research group work on a unification of Einstein's theory of general relativity with the principles of quantum physics. Before that, he did his PhD at the Max-Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics in Potsdam, and was a research fellow at the University of Cambridge, UK. When he is not trying to calculate what goes on inside a black hole, or what happened at the Big Bang, he likes to explain physics to laypeople - by giving public talks, or writing popular science books. Dr. Boris Lemmer is an experimental elementary particle physicist, working at the University of Goettingen and on the ATLAS Experiment at CERN. Before doing his PhD in Goettingen, he studied physics and mathematics in Giessen. He does not only love science, but also explaining it to laymen, either in books, in talks or on stage. In 2011, he won the German Science Slam championship. Rina Piccolo's cartoons have appeared in numerous magazines including The New Yorker, Barron's Business Magazine, The Reader's Digest, Parade Magazine, and more.Her daily comic strip "Tina's Groove" is syndicated in newspapers and websites worldwide.
