|with the help of Emily, APS News' science writer!|
|You're never too young to start learning about physics!|
|Doctor Yi Suchong shows off his genuine Edison Wax Cylinder record.|
|I met a Left Shark...|
|...and saw some weird recursions...|
|...along with some folks trying to get their live-action Thundercats movie off the ground.|
|Becky, the author of Spectra, was on a few panels about science and outreach,|
|and Dave revealed his superpower to us! What, you think they give Legion rings to just anybody?|
|Hope you liked the gallery, and we hope to see you next year; same time, same place! (Booth 2207, as all our loyal fans know)|
