Hi Everyone,

     Here are the rules for the new contest:

We want you to write a poem about a famous physicist.  Poems can be in any form you want, but should not be "epic poems".  One to two stanzas should be the goal.  The poems be original, and should describe the life and work of the physicist in question.  Limericks are acceptable, but other styles of poetry are also encouraged.  For example (taken from "Color Me Physics"

Galileo was no dope
Looking through his telescope.
He would have to be much stupider
Not to see the moons of Jupiter.

Or,

Men said women can't do science
Marie Curie showed defiance.
She was not afraidy 'um
She discovered radium.

Up to three winners will be chosen by The Nucleus staff, and will receive either rainbow glasses and bubble pens, or a choice of t-shirt from the SPS store.

Have fun!

Dave
