The Six Flavors of Quark

When scientists talk about the "flavors of quarks" they are referring to subatomic particles theorized to make up protons and neutrons. That, however, is boring. To many of us, at least. How much more fun would it be to explore the six flavors of Commander Adam Quark from the fan-favorite sci-fi limited series Quark? The Galaxy Ad Infinitum! More...
