Is the gravitational-wave ringdown a probe of the event horizon? - 0 views

  •  
    This simulation showx that the signal measured in LIGO could come from a gravaster (objects which are believed to have their insides made of dark energy) or even a wormhole as sources of gravitacional waves. Published in PRL by friends of Jai

    proper engineering. do this

    YouTube sensation and inventor Colin Furze is used to making insane things like retractable wolverine claws, working versions of the hidden blade and rope launcher featured in Assassin's Creed games, and even a homemade Iron Man suit. But this time he decided to do something even crazier and build a hoverbike, and surprisingly, he succeeded and didn't die in the process.

New Test of the Gravitational Inverse-Square Law at the Submillimeter Range with Dual M... - 1 views

  •  
    "The experimental result shows that, at a 95% confidence level, the gravitational inverse-square law holds (|α|≤1) down to a length scale λ=59  μm"

The Network Behind the Cosmic Web - 1 views

    "The concept of the cosmic web-viewing the universe as a set of discrete galaxies held together by gravity-is deeply ingrained in cosmology. Yet, little is known about architecture of this network or its characteristics. Our research used data from 24,000 galaxies to construct multiple models of the cosmic web, offering complex blueprints for how galaxies fit together. These three interactive visualizations help us imagine the cosmic web, show us differences between the models, and give us insight into the fundamental structure of the universe."

Antimatter Starship Scheme Coming to Kickstarter - 1 views

  •  
    "Hbar Technologies plans a Kickstarter effort to raise US $200,000 for the next phase design of an antimatter-propelled spaceship. The two scientists behind this design effort are a veteran Fermilab particle accelerator scientist and a former Los Alamos National Laboratory physicist and founding director of the U.S. Center for Space Nuclear Research. They originally developed it for NASA at the turn of the millennium."
