Welcome to Physics on the Fringe


This website is dedicated to the book 
Physics on the Fringe: Smoke Rings, Circlons, and Alternative Theories of Everything by Margaret Wertheim (Walker, 2011).

video piece about Physics on the Fringe has been posted on the website of ABC Australia's radio program, The Science Show. Here I am interviewed by Australia's Robyn Williams about the sociology and philosophy of outsider physics. The interview is intercut with sections from the film "It's Jim's World ... We just Live in It", which I co-produced and directed with Cameron Allan. The film, a documentary about the life and work of Physics on the Fringe hero, Jim Carter, may be purchased here:

Thanks to Cameron for his beautiful camerawork and music on the film.

Tragically, on June 25 2013 Cameron passed away. The film remains as a tribute to his talent and skill as a composer and photographer.

Cameron Allan: 1955 - 2013, composer and filmmaker.
