How often do you use physics in your job?
Have your say by voting in our Facebook poll.
The poll allows you to choose from several options, from “practically every day” to “I obey the laws of physics, but I don’t use them at work”.
You’re also welcome to explain your answers further in the comments section or – if you’re a recent physics graduate – to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us more about how you’re using physics in your job. We’ll use the results in our October special section on careers for physics graduates.
For the moment, though, let’s return to last week’s poll. We asked whether a shift towards privatized space missions would be good for science, and readers who are simultaneously celebrating the safe return of Atlantis and mourning the last shuttle flight and can take a little comfort from the result. Some 72% of respondents said “yes”, with 28% voting “no”.
