This is the second in a series of articles looking beyond my garden to see the bigger picture. In the first article, Looking Beyond the Garden: A Convinced Gardener Considers Climate Change (to access, click on the word "Articles" in the column to the right), I focused on the planet Earth and one of the ways in which its atmosphere is affected by what goes on here. The rest of the series ventures beyond our atmosphere into outer space to consider some of the fantastic discoveries made by modern physics.

Great review, Larry.

Particle physics generally: fascinating, but unsettling.
The mathematical models predict and the (experimental) observations confirm.

But science is traditionally said to start with observation.

Forgot! Also love the Coreopsis.

Thanks, Charlie. These articles help me to clarify my own understanding as well.

Love this coreopsis series, too. I've been a bit hesitant to sample any of its members. My past experience has been that even though a coreopsis variety is said to be hardy in zone 5 (our zone here in Iowa), I haven't had much luck. The only coreopsis varieties that succeed in our gardens are those hardy to zone 4.

As a gardener: When planning for a year, I plant corn. When planning for decades, I plant trees. When planning for life, I train and educate people.
