  1. An interesting link more to follow in the near future http://elektro.cmhnet.org/~robert/science.html
  2. My title was 'Exceeding the speed of light?'... with a ? Not once have I said we are, we can, but more so to the effect can we? Which IMHO none of us are sure of yet....maybe light speed can be broken, maybe it cannot, I really do not know; however according to archives reports which I'm researching it has already been done...this is not my reckoning, but space dailys & other IT tabloids which hopefully I will be able to recover & forward their posts...us.2u
  3. A black hole is a concentration of mass with a gravitational field so strong that the escape velocity from nearby points exceeds the speed of light. This implies that nothing, not even light, can escape its gravity, hence the word "black." The term "black hole" is widespread, even though the theory does not refer to any hole in the usual sense, but rather a region of space from which nothing can return. From the above link....PLEASE READ THE FIRST SENTANCE....us.2u
  4. http://www.yotor.com/wiki/en/bl/Black%20hole.htm more links on this subject to follow...us.2u
  5. I read approx 5-6 months ago that a black hole had rejected a star & threw it so violently, it travelled faster than the speed of light? Can this be possible? If so was the force which was used 'Gravity' & if so how could that speed be measured? or is it possible that this was just a report by some crank bordering on the realms of Sci-fi to make interesting reading? I do not know, meanwhile I will try & dig up the article. I seem to recall this was in a space daily report, also in space.com news however, I will do my best to restore this story if anyone is interested.....us.2u
  6. http://www-gap.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/~history/HistTopics/General_relativity.html This is a good insight...us.2u

  8. Einstein predicted the speed of gravity equals the speed of light, but it's never been proven. Albert Einstein Sunlight takes 8 1/3 minutes to travel to Earth. Scientists believe gravity has the same property. "If you had some monster or deity able to pick up the sun and completely move it away from our solar system instantaneously, what would happen to the Earth?" asked Ed Fomalont, an astronomer with the Radio Astronomy Observatory, on CBC Radio's As It Happens. Fomalont said the Earth would continue in its orbit around the sun for another 8 1/3 minutes until the sun and its gravity disappeared – the gravitational time lag would equal the time lag of light. Then the Earth would go in a straight line. Since no one can move the sun, astronomers had to find another way to measure the speed of gravity. Jupiter meet quasar Fortunately, on Sept. 8, Jupiter passed close to the light coming from a quasar, a star-like object billions of light-years away. The alignment offered astronomers their chance. Astrophysicists used the alignment and their modern telescopes to test Einstein's assumption that light and gravity travel at the same speed. 'You can't bet against Einstein. I'd bet 100 to 1 that he's right' -Ed Fomalont Radio and optical astronomers are able to measure the direction to celestial objects in the sky very well. They knew the quasar was going by as Jupiter happened to be almost in front. Jupiter's gravity should have nudged the light coming from the quasar, causing it to appear to shift its position slightly in the sky.
  9. Cheers Swansont so that's cleared that up then...us.2u
  10. I see what you're asking Sayonara; but my original question was 'wiill moores superceed nano technology' all is a bit of a grey matter to me as they seem to work along side each other; however here is another link to throw more light on the subject God I hope we all get there eventually......but I am a bit slow to pick things up....us.2u http://www.theregister.co.uk/2003/05/08/moores_law_retains_grip/
  11. I think it probably is true that men have higher sex drives, but also I believe compatibility plays an extensive part, also occupation & timing. Are we discussing sex for sex's sake or meaningful sex i.e. a relationship where partners express each others love naturally? I think sex drive can't be measured as so much depends on various situations...us.2u
  12. As I presume magnetism light & gravity are c; then surely they must all be constant? I presume by that none of them can be variable, or that would contradict them being a constant would it not?...us.2u
