libramoon,

Thanks. Enjoyed reading Maxwell's poem. Fits with my current reading of Rhodes' "The Making of the Bomb" about the evolution of nuclear science. It's a lot about the discovery of the atom, the electron, the structure of the atom, the study of light, all this stuff that sort of relates to Maxwell's work. Zak
