    The following is about special relativity, which I did not make up myself:

    There once was a lady named Bright
    Who traveled much faster than light
    She set off one day
    In a relative way
    And returned on the previous night

    The following is about the time period of a pendulum, which I did not make up myself:

    When a pendulum's swinging quite free
    It's always a marvel to me
    That each tick plus each tock
    Of the grandfather clock
    Equals 2 pi root l over g

    And the following is about an alien. The first two lines come from Star Trek, the rest I made up myself:

    There was was a young lady from Venus
    Who's body was shaped like a penis
    She decided one day
    To go on holiday
    And set off on a trip to Uranus

    If you will allow me to edit your limerick into a slightly ruder version:

    There was was a young lady from Venus
    Who's body was shaped like a penis
    On one holiday
    She quite lost her way
    And ended up stuck in Uranus

    Miss Farad was pretty and sensual
    And charged to a reckless potential;
    But a rascal named Ohm
    Conducted her home -
    Her decline was, alas, exponential.

    There are several Great Lies that we know.
    One is "I'll love you tomorrow."
    Here's another false word
    That we've recently heard,
    "With less money your research will grow!"

    Mendel did work that was clerical
    His ideas were considered heretical
    But his studies of peas
    Are correct now, we sees
    The reason, of course, was genetical

    More philosophy than science (and not original):

    There was a young man who said "Damn!"
    It grieves me to think that I am
    Predestined to move
    In a circumscribed groove:
    In fact, not a bus, but a tram.

    To understand superposition
    So did he survive?
    Was he dead and alive?
    It depended on nuclear fission
