Record(s) o’ the Month – May 2018

“It is often predicted that whatever records I review in a month will be the Record o’ the Month.

And it gets better: it’s even on time! Is it a coincidence? Or did someone threaten to rip out my fingernails behind the scenes if the Record(s) o’ the Month weren’t on time for May? The world may never know. But the world is going to enjoy the hell out of this wallpaper for the next six months…”

Now Hannes Grossman, Christian Münzner and co return with Liquid Anatomy.” Fluid dynamics.
