Hair brained

In some physics related hair news, top Caltech GR theorist Kip Thorne has decided to emulate a black hole and have 'no hair' (really sorry about the black-hole physics based joke.) I saw him wandering about at the APS meeting the other day and he'd completely removed his famous ponytail!


  1. Noooo!!! He's had that haircut since the 60s! He practically invented the balding hippie scientist look that one day I too hope to emulate.

  2. Any news on his stance on the Hairy Ball Theorem, though?

  3. Afraid it's all gone man. He still has the goatee, but his pate's as shiny as a bowling ball.
