Discovering "Long-Fuse" Papers – Physics Results

This post was originally published elsewhere and has been put here with the authors permission. You can see where it was originally published here.

I ended the previous blog with a list of “long-fuse” astronomy papers and I realized that, since I have similar results for physics papers too, why not show them here as well? So, that’s what this blog will be about. Just a list of those “long-fuse” physics papers. There is another blog in the making that will explore the statistics a little bit more, so stay tuned…

Here’s a list of 31 “long-fuse” physics papers. There are definitely more, but this is a nice illustrative set with some true gems…
