Daily Download 28: The Hole Through the Middle of the Earth, using ODE solvers, and Three Blokes

Today’s download is based on a series of posts on the “hole through the middle of the Earth”, which by devious means has been tied in with the solution of differential equations, buckling of columns, and a story by Bill Baily about when not to offer to buy the first round.

Three blokes go into a pub …
The hole through the middle of the Earth – filled with air

… and for anyone making it to the end and wondering where the next episode is, it hasn’t been written yet.
