My friend Jack Stubbs is a physicist and an inventor, and he has an artsy side that comes out from time to time. Wednesday was one of those times. I was headed to our Facebook page to post some pictures, and in my news feed I saw a post from Jack with a picture of a snowflake. Two thoughts immediately came to my mind – (1) Jack never posts on Facebook, and (2) I know some people who might enjoy this.
This is what I saw . . .
It’s a three dimensional snowflake that he created with a computer and some scientific know-how that is way over my head. But he created about two minutes of video that explains it, and you can see it by clicking here. I saw Jack at the golf course on Wednesday afternoon and teased him about his camera presence (or lack thereof) – that know-how is not over my head.
I have known Jack forever – his parents and mine used to double date back in the 50s. Longtime customers of ours may remember another of Jack’s inventions – Self-Simmering Potpourri. It was really cool – looked like a little rosin bag that you could drop into a cup of water and get several minutes of fragrance. He has also invented a number of intricate surgical tools that are simply amazing.
Enjoy – and have a great weekend!
