Questions for the shed scientist

Those cerebral sheddies over at Highland Science festival pose these questions after their successful lectures in a shed thing the other month, which we mentioned, it’s all science today on shedblog.

Have famous physicists had their own sheds? And could these have infleunced their work?

Did Newton sit in an apple shed, absently picking up some of them and dropping them on the floor?

Did Einstein find the space in his shed shrinking and the time going by more slowly – or the other way round?

Did Schrödinger’s cat come from Schrödinger’s shed?

And was Heisenberg uncertain about whether he had a shed or not?

Or could a Shed be the ultimate unit of matter?

One shed = the amount of stuff that one man can accumulate in ten years of marriage.

Indeed, could it be that we will soon see strings going out? – and sheds coming in!

thanks to Alex for the reminder.
