I was thinking of putting the monthly game reports here, but I really don't know if anyone ever really looks here. So, Unless there is a great outcry for it, I'll just use this page for important announcements.


This game is named after Albert Abraham Michelson.

United States of America (1852-1931)

First American scientist to win a Noble Prize, 1907; for his optical precision instruments and metrological investigations carried out with their aid; the "Michelson-Morley experiment" which established the non-existence of the luminiferous aether, thought until that time as the transmitting medium for electromagnetic waves; Michelson Interferometer, a precise method to measure small displacements using the interference of reflected waves .

from Selected Papers of Great American Physicists, ed. Spencer R. Weart, American Physical Society, New York (1976))
