Good one. This explains an exam question (Optics in third year) I had many years ago: calculate at what distance you may be able to tell that the light you see coming is not a motorcycle (a single headlight) but a car (two headlights). [Of course everything is related to the concept of optical resolution, and it was actually a pretty easy problem]. I remember that I was wrong by an order of magnitude in wavelength, and the result was obviously (and patently) wrong … the worst is that I tried to justify myself (I knew it was well done, the physics was correct… but I was stuck with the damn order of magnitude) and further suspend, I ended up doing pretty ridiculous. Shit happens!

Tracing the aesthetic and conceptual beauty of Science since 2010. Using the power of scientific imagery to bring Science to the people who usually flees from it terrified. Although almost all fields has their spot, we try to keep the focus on the hard sciences, after all they are most in need. Oh, and you will also find a punch of humor, philosophy, history and many other tangential topics. Enjoy your trip!
