Daily Thoughts 02/21/2020

File:Handsome Library Building (Carnegie Library, Boise).jpg
Boise's Carnegie Library was designed by Tourtellotte & Co. and was selected from among 17 sets of plans submitted by competing architects in 1904. The library moved to larger facilities in 1973, and the older building now is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Daily Thoughts 02/21/2020

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I finished reading What Is Chemistry? by Peter Atkins last night. The last part is about the future of chemistry.  It includes some material on graphite and fullerenes.

I also read a bit of Imagined Life A Speculative Scientific Journey Among the Exoplanets In Search of Intelligent Aliens, Ice Creatures, and Supergravity Animals by James Trefil and Michael Summers.  The authors describe why life on other planets does not have to be anything like life on earth.
