Longer casting thanks to F1
By Hamish Johnston
If you happen to be in London you might want to check out a new exhibit at the Science Museum about how Formula 1 motor racing has spun-out technologies used by furniture designers, paramedics and even fly fishing enthusiasts.
The exhibit is called Fast Forward: 20 Ways F1 is changing the world .
There’s no need to hurry because the free exhibit runs until April 5, 2010.
As for myself, I’m off to Pittsburgh tomorrow for the APS March Meeting …one week of condensed-matter physics madness, and I wouldn’t miss it for the world!
