S.N. Bose Blog Launched!

This WebLog (Blog) is launched in January 2007, 113 years after the birth of my grandfather, Professor S.N. Bose (1894-1974), fondly also remembered as Satyen Bose by many — best known as the founder of Bose Statistics (also often referred as Bose Einstein Statistics), a fundamental component of modern quantum theory and the basis of Bose Einstein Condensation.

A lot has happened in these 113 years, and a lot continues to happen especially in the frontiers of physics and science in general.

Over the next weeks and months we will document and discuss news on Bose Einstein, share stories of interest in the world of science, and periodically recount vignettes of my illustrious ancestor S.N. Bose, a remarkable figure who lived a colourful life which very few people know about. I hope that this blog will be informative, entertaining, and even a bit inspiring.

The SN Bose website has more information about S.N. Bose and the S.N. Bose Biography Project. Please visit www.snbose.org.
