Thanks for putting that up Adam. It all looks pretty good so far, but
the following caught my eye:

* All temperatures should be in Celsius. Conversions will be performed
by methods (or a package in scipy, if scipy has a unit conversion
system)

Would it not be better to work in units of Kelvin? In my experience
Kelvin is used more often than Celcius in scientific work. What do
others think?

Cheers,

Tim
