  • Google maps is incorrect listing this as a "Catholic Church". According to their website at (), its called "Antoniterkirche" and became the first Protestant church in Cologne in 1805. One way or the other, it's a beautiful stone church with interesting doors that is situated directly opposite a very modern glass structure. We didn't go inside because it was Sunday and there was a service in progress.
  • In 'Only the Longest Threads', Tasneem Zehra Husain explains in clear and simple prose the major breakthroughs in Physics, starting with Isaac Newton and his concept of universal gravitation, and continuing with James Clerk Maxwell and on past Albert Einstein to the present time. Since Einstein's monumental achievements, the search for understanding of the universe has required increasing collaboration, culminating in the many thousands of scientists now involved with the colossal proton splitter many miles under the Swiss French border. This growing complexity has made it more and more difficult for the interested layperson to understand what is going on. Husain's extraordinarily effective solution is to tell each story through the eyes of an imagined contemporary observer, thus conveying the excitement and wonder that came with each new understanding of our physical world. The book is grounded in deep research of place and period, and distinguished by straightforward style and clear insights. Bro Bro Bro Bro
