Parallel worlds (almost)....

I was just looking through recent issues of Physics of Fluids (the American Institute of Physics' journal on fluid flow, and one of the better journals in my research field), looking to see if anything of interest had been published recently. Among the articles that I found was a rather theoretical one concerning the motion of certain types of bubbles -- a derivation which isn't likely to be directly useful, but is nonetheless interesting and the methods might be applicable.

I did a double-take when I saw the author's affiliation: The Iraqi Atomic Energy Commission.

I'm ... not really quite sure what to make of that, I think.
