Characters ☆ The Second Kind of Impossible Ose a radically new type of matter one that raises the possibility of new materials with never before seen properties but that violates the laws of crystallography which have been set in stone for centuries Steinhardt dubs this new form of matter “uasicrystal” The rest of the scientific community calls it simply impossible The Second Kind of Impossible captures Steinhardt’s scientific odyssey as it unfolds over decades first to prove that uasicrystals could be synthesized in the laboratory and then to pursue his wildest conjecture that nature made uasicrystals long before humans discovered them Al. Some books are about miracles Even science books A scientist by the name of Penrose solves tiling puzzles based on the mathematical games column in Scientific American Professor Steinhardt at U Penn and a grad student intrigued start to explore a ridiculous idea They are laughed at discouraged told they are wasting their time but through sheer persistence find a new form of matter breaking 200 year old laws A new form of matter that makes its way into non stick frying pans today The twists and turns of this incredible 30 year story are so wild it s at times difficult to believe In fact if this was fiction you would laugh at just how ridiculous the plot is great idea Super creative Where did you come up with that one But it s all real although one suspects embellished in partsCan a science book have a spoiler This one kind of does Let s just say this book literally goes places I ve never seen a science book go before I will leave it at that In the end you are simply amazed th

Characters ☆ The Second Kind of Impossible One of the most fascinating and surprising scientific detective stories of the last fifty years an exciting uest for a new form of matter told firsthand The Second Kind of Impossible reads like James Gleick’s Chaos combined with an Indiana Jones adventureWhen leading Princeton physicist Paul Steinhardt began working in the 1980s scientists thought they knew all the conceivable forms of matter The Second Kind of Impossible is the story of Steinhardt’s thirty five year long uest to challenge conventional wisdom It begins with a curious geometric pattern that inspires two theoretical physicists to prop. The real life adventures of a theoretical physicistScience has always sought symmetry Einstein spent the last half of his life trying to fit the universe into a neat symmetrical package Anything that smacks of asymmetry is suspect So a collection of multisided crystals was long ago deemed impossible to fit together Think triangles suares rectangles and rhombuses as the limits For good measure the five to twelve sideds were deemed impossible to even exist in nature For the past 300 years this has been solid unuestioned science For someone to claim such crystals actually exist in nature was tantamount to claiming there was a new kind of matter And that s what The Second Kind of Impossible is aboutFor three decades Pau Steinhardt of Princeton has been piecing together the puzzle of uasicrystals They are multisided crystals that can be manufactured in labs and have been since the early 80s but have been deemed a natural impossibility Impossible because they won t fit together

Characters ☆ The Second Kind of Impossible Ong the way his team encounters clandestine collectors corrupt scientists secret diaries international smugglers and KGB agents Their uest culminates in a daring expedition to a distant corner of the Earth in pursuit of tiny fragments of a meteorite forged at the birth of the solar systemSteinhardt’s discoveries chart a new direction in science They not only change our ideas about patterns and matter but also reveal new truths about the processes that shaped our solar system The underlying science is important simple and beautiful and Steinhardt’s first hand account is an engaging scientific thrille. I have read many science books and this is one of the best Not for remodeling my vision of a whole subject like Lucio Russo s The Forgotten Revolution or Nick Lane s The Vital uestion but for demonstrating virtually all aspects of scientific inuiry in a single coherent story from abstract mathematics to theoretical then experimental chemistry and mineralogy to digging dirt in Kamchatka in search of meteorite fragments from a solitary obsession to debating critics launching new fields of enuiry and organizing large international collaborations The book is an autobiographical thriller whose author and main character could be called a vertically integrated scientist Paul Steinhardt continually learns new fields of research and new methods of work in the service of his passion for uasicrystals Writing a popular book on the subject is the latest trade he has learned The book does not chronicle its own writing which comes almost as a surprise And he has learned it very well althoug
