Who’s the fairest of them all? Physics.
Layne Tieszen, sophomore physics student at South Dakota School of Mines & Technology, kneels next to a laminated mirror he built that can take you back in time ... sort of. The laminated structure allows light to partially reflect back and forth as it gradually fades, which means that, in some sense, it lets you look at older light. Tieszen was part of a larger contingent from Mines for the university’s day in the Capitol Rotunda on Thursday. (Dave Askins/Capital Journal)
