Another great accomplishment by a Berkeley grad student.

I know it’s just about Thanksgiving, but check out the runner-up in Wired’s contest for best Halloween costume:


She’s the cosmic microwave background radiation! Her name is Jessica Kirpatrick, and she’s a graduate student at U.C. Berkeley, working with my old friend and former housemate David Schlegel.

One or two Halloweens from now, this costume will be out of date: there should be a much better CMB map.

Thanks to Ken Ganga for passing this along.
