It’s likely that our Moon emerged from a giant collision between Earth and a body the size of Mars. But getting that story, or any other, to fully square with the evidence has proven difficult.

Physics Today 67 (11), 39–44 (2014); https://doi.org/10.1063/PT.3.2584

The crack patterns in dried mud, permafrost, and lava columns exhibit subtle variations on simple physics.

Already in Faraday’s electrotonic state and Maxwell’s vector potential, gauge freedom was an unavoidable presence. Converting that presence to the symmetry principle that underpins our successful standard model is a story worth telling.
