Sciency Words is a special series here on Planet Pailly where we take a look at new and interesting scientific terms to help us all expand our scientific vocabularies together. Today’s word is:

TENSOR (anatomy)

In last week’s edition of Sciency Words, we looked at what a tensor is in physics. Or at least we tried to since I don’t fully understand the concept yet. Today, we’re looking at tensors in terms of anatomy.

A tensor is a muscle that tenses a body part.

That’s it! We’re done here! Why does the physics version have to be so frickin’ complicated?

Einsteins equations has revealed mathematical solutions for unlocking the bizare properties of rotating black holes. All is not what it seems. I think we need the tomorrow news network on the case.
