Lab Corner: The power of three

By Mike Anderson, P.E., CAE 

I was listening to the radio recently and heard “Learning to Fly” by Pink Floyd. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed it since much of my experience with their music ended with the album “The Final Cut” in 1983. As I listened it occurred to me that two other songs I also loved – “Given to Fly” by Pearl Jam and “Learn to Fly” by Foo Fighters – had almost the same name and were all released within about a decade of each other. Odd that three great songs would have so similar names and be in my listening consciousness around the same time.
