Recently I’ve been reading The Dreaming Dragons by Damien Broderick.
I had a few questions regarding physics as a result, especially about gluons and quarks. It turns out that it is extremely difficult (currently, impossible) to isolate a quark, because the energy required to break off a quark just creates more of ’em. As a non-scientific person, I tried to create a mental image of what the process might look like. (This is not how quarks actually behave 🙂
