In Celebration of Science

I haven't published a science-related post in a long time, but today, we must celebrate the long-wished -for realization of a dream: the real definition (for now) of a kilogram.  The New York Times summarizes it far better than I could here, in The Kilogram is Dead. Long Live the Kilogram! This won't affect kitchen scales or, sadly, my bathroom scale, but for nerdy scientists working in physics and astronomy and astro-engineering and on the theoretical edges of many disciplines, it will affect their theories and instrumentation. So, today, let's celebrate the mighty yet lowly kilogram, and those scientists who spent decades working to more accurately define it. Long like the K!
