So, my first paper is being submitted this week. Well strictly speaking, it isn't really 'my' paper, I'm third author on the thing. Still! It's a first. And it feels momentous because of all the struggling, failure, uncertainty and doubt that one survived (somehow) to get to this point. So we are feeling quite blessed today. A trifle unworthy, and definitely blessed.

Being rather ambitious, we have decided to submit to the NPG (Nature Publishing Group). I have no idea if our work is worthy of such a journal, so I shall have to take the boss man's word for it - he says it is, so we give it a shot. To me, it seems comprehensive, a good piece of experimental physics. But I would say that!

Now to hold our breath, bite our lips and hope to god, it'll be accepted!
