They say not to judge a book by its cover.  But what about a pizza by its cheese or a silicon chip by its top layer?  This week was full of things hidden (but still important!) underneath the surface.

If I seem a bit on edge, it’s because we just heated oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (or 477.6 K, for those of you with a thing for scientific units) and discovered that the plastic on certain objects does in fact begin to decompose at elevated temperatures. It’s a long story.

They say time flies when you’re having fun. Even at this early point of the summer, I’m afraid that if I blink, I’ll miss the rest of it—week two felt, if anything, faster than the first. Maybe it’s because this week I got to start working at NIST on my research project.

Before this week, I never knew how exciting it would be to live in the middle of Washington D.C.

SPS means field trips to national labs, a support network across the country, and a young generation of
physicists who care.
