Title

You’ve Been Lied to about Physics (Because the Truth is Complicated)

Description

This is not crank science, nor is it debunking of crank science, rather it is a rundown of some of the ways science findings have been distorted or simplified to the point of gross errors by popular media. From E=mc² to black holes in the laboratory, come and get the true stories.
