Problem of the Month: Gilligan Physics

So, some of us over here at Virtuosi Central have organized a challenge problem for the physics community here at Cornell. Well, we thought we would open up the challenge to the great wide world. The more submissions the merrier.

The deadline is March 1, and submissions can be sent to our email.

Details can be found at

Good luck and happy hunting.


  1. Are you going to post the ideas people have submitted? I didn't submit anything, but I've been giving the problem some thought and I am interested to see if others came up with similar solutions.

  2. Hi,

    Yep, we'll be posting the winning ideas shortly. In this case "shortly" probably translates into the end of the week. So still plenty of time if you'd like to submit a solution.

  3. The suspense is killing me. How long until the winner is announced?!

  4. Did you know that you can create short urls with AdFly and get cash from every visitor to your short urls.
