My first of two classes (that’s right two, which is why Cornell in Washington is so great and you get a part-time internship so it’s like you have a career) was held today from 10-12. Politics and Policy is its name and I learned one thing today besides being scared for the research paper due at the end of the semester. Richard Feyman (a former Cornell prof who also worked in the Manhattan Project) was commissioner of the Rogers Commission, whose job it was to investigate the Challenger disaster. Feyman devised a unique experiment to test if the O-rings failed due to the cold weather and that’s how we have to do research… in a unique way. Too bad I’m not a genius like Feyman.
