I have to share this, and I think this thread would appreciate it.
The little Oni and I read almost every night. It started with the typical children's books, and has moved up to Rick Riordan, Andre Norton, and Isaac Asimov. The last was as the result of her asking me about black holes, and so I broke out my copy of 'The Collapsing Universe.' She's shown a remarkable amount of retention on that one - a couple years back, she startled a presenter at an anime con by knowing the names of the four forces (gravitational, electromagnetic, and the strong and weak nuclear). To be fair, the man was not a physicist, so I really gave him a pass.
This week, her gifted group took a trip to a local college to see lectures about science careers. In one of them, the presenter got to the point of saying that 'Light travels in a straight line'. Little Oni's hand went up. 'Actually, light is affected by gravity.' (This should have been a cue to amend the claim, in my opinion, maybe mention space-time curvature and accept that the audience doesn't need as much 'help' as previously thought.) Instead, the presenter plowed ahead with the 'straight line' insistence, saying that light was not affected by gravity.
'But - that's how black holes work. Light ends up going in circles around them because the gravity is so strong.'
Yeah... physics. Always complicating things with the facts.
