Sunset over Dinner

Today’s lesson for the day, discussed over dinner.

Consider the scene: in the flat of physicists, one optimistically tanning over by the window.

One to them, “You see the problem here is with the sun setting, there’s more atmosphere to travel through; it’s not as intense”.

Another: “But, of course, UV can’t penetrate through glass”.

Lesson: Atmospheric physics is not appropriate dinner conversation.

There’s was also no noticeable change in tan. Within measurable errors.
