Whilst navigating the seas of social media today, I happily stumbled upon something useful! I found a website which encourages researchers to describe their work using the 1000 most common English words.
I found this particularly challenging and therefore enraging and addictive, and thought that my blog readers would thoroughly enjoy having a go at this. Click here to see my effort.
I particularly encourage friends and family to do this, whatever their job may be, so that they may appreciate the amount of work that goes in to preparing something like this!
Mine is not totally coherent.. and makes black holes sound like cannibalistic zombies.. but there's only so much a girl can do with the 1000 most common words in the English language when trying to describe supermassive black holes. Le sigh.
There is a particular effort which describes how stars age are excellent, and worth a read.
PS, if tweeting your results use #UPGOERFIVE

This is a wonderful website. This post was particularly interesting -- the Up-Goer Five summary was well done. ;)
