    Story

    The second half of the 20th century witnessed a scientific gold rush as physicists raced to chart the inner workings of the atom. The stakes were high, the questions were big, and there were Nobel Prizes and everlasting glory to be won. Many mysteries of the atom came unraveled, but one remained intractable-what Frank Close calls the "Infinity Puzzle."

    Gary says: "Succinct exposition"
    "Unintelligable"

    What would have made The Infinity Puzzle better?

    Not for anyone who does not have advanced training in physics and/or math.


    What was most disappointing about Frank Close’s story?

    This does not really count as popular science. Much too difficult to follow and the human interest anecdotes feel forced.
