  1. Try these also, not all nuclear, but still interesting. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spacecraft_propulsion#Speculative_methods
  2. Disclaimer: Black hole not visible, southern hemisphere required. https://www.theregister.com/2020/05/06/nearest_black_hole_earth/
  3. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-53151106
  4. https://www.ibtimes.co.uk/scientists-prove-decades-old-theory-suggesting-extremely-odd-physics-about-black-holes-1679850
  5. Wouldn't that be when we were still hunter gatherers. It's usually the more intelligent ones that become the main hunters. Maybe it was females that first started talking about it. Must've been a huge attraction back then, as it is now. Try this, https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evolution_of_human_intelligence
  6. https://phys.org/news/2020-06-astrophysicists-cornerstone-einstein-theory-relativity.html
  7. Best Bob Dylan song ever. Not sure how long this will stay up, YouTube has a habit of taking this down. Not the live versions though, which are crap.
  8. I could say " maybe you think it's good that there are 120 guns per 100 people in the US" But that doesn't mean every person in America has 120 guns. Most Americans don't own guns. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_ownership#United_States_gun_ownership
  9. You mean like when he's handcuffed on the floor and you know he's unarmed. Or when you have you knee on his neck and he can't breathe, or when you have fellow police officers with you. The police should treat each incident as it is, not how it could be.
  10. I'm not being delusional. The fact of the matter is, George Floyd was unarmed, he wasn't being aggressive nor was he suspected of a violent crime. There were more than enough officers to arrest him without incident. This 'yes, but look at the amount of guns in America' argument doesn't hold up. It's nothing more than a poor excuse for police brutality.
  11. How about like this. Nikolas Cruz, murdered 17 people George Floyd, suspect in a forgery. Notice the difference? The argument about the amount of guns and open carry being a problem is a load of crap.
  12. And those that are threatening the use of deadly force to end it are not helping either.
  13. Nearly fell over when I watched this. I'd like to see Ken Ham debate evolution with someone like this. Would be far more intresting. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pat_Robertson
  14. The draft resolution targeting social media. https://kateklonick.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/DRAFT-EO-Preventing-Online-Censorship.pdf
  15. After Twitter put the fact checker on this tweet Trumps now accusing them of stifling free speech. And Question: can he do this, should social media be worried? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-52815552
  16. 'Africans are used to the heat it won't bother them, and we can send them more food if they need it. That way the population of Africa can continue growing and natural resources can be continue being extracted and shipped here cheaply' I'm not surprised Africa is turning to China when I read patronising crap like this. What decade do you live in? (drumbo)
  17. This coronavirus situation is starting to get out of hand.
  18. Agreed. 2:20 onwards is just outright abuse. A tough teacher can be great, but there's a fine line between a tough teacher and a bully. This guys definitely the latter. Great film though, definitely recommend it. This is a type of teacher we need more of.
  19. A music pioneer died today. Richard Wayne Penniman, AKA 'Little Richard' and the 'Architect of rock and roll'. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Richard
  20. (Bonus: picture of two of the clocks I helped build) Impressive, off topic but does that mean your more of an engineer rather than a physicist, or do you consider yourself both? (Swansont)
  21. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/05/200506091537.htm https://www.eso.org/public/archives/releases/sciencepapers/eso2007/eso2007a.pdf
  22. Same story but there's an feature where you can click and drag to look around the inside of the detector. Seriously impressive. https://www.quantamagazine.org/neutrino-evidence-could-explain-matter-antimatter-asymmetry-20200415/
  23. Nice, Never heard of the CHEOPS telescope. Being a European project is another plus. Love reading about extreme planets, more intresting than the search for extraterrestrial life I think.
  24. There's actually a thread about this. Sorry, very late where I am. 😴 https://www.scienceforums.net/topic/121754-expansion-different-in-different-directions/
