The nights are short and only bright stars are visible at night here now.  Still, some meteors can be seen.  I got this shot last night.

I once went to the end of the lava flow during an eruption of Etna.  The sound of an eruption is amazing.  Like the entire mountain was breathing and panting.

Science and Astronomy Questions

We may ask more or less the same question without having to use portals.  If we're at a distance above the event horizon of a black hole and drop one bullet at fire another at great speed, would the fired bullet cross the event horizon at a greater speed?  Though counter intuitive, no that's impossi...

I'm not a geologist, but here are my thoughts anyway. 20272 1. What's at the end of a lava tube/lava cave? Is it just lava or is there some sort of wall or rubble? You mean after the eruption has ended?  If you follow a lava tube the end will either be where the lava solidified to fill the entire ca...

This moose didn't seem to mind me taking a photo of it with my mobile phone this late evening. Near Strömstad, Sweden.

20120 Now consider that there is much more mass in the form of gas than in the form of stars, so if what we're calling dark matter is actually a flaw in our understanding of gravity due to normal matter, then we should see that the gravitational anomaly follows the gas.  But it doesn't.  It follows...

20135 What would it take to make a standard consumer computer screen bright enough to actually blind someone, either with and/or without cgi graphics? The monitor would have to be roughly 10 million times brighter than typical consumer monitors to match the sun (160 cd/m 2 vs 1.6*10 9 cd/m 2 ).  To...

20072 What we observe in galaxies and clusters are motions that indicate an additional source of gravitational field that is not attributed to the visible matter.  The source of this additional gravitation is extended ("puffed up") around the galaxies more than the stars and gas are, and ...

Unusual weather

Wow, thanks, Destructor...

I have a fascination for nature, and technical stuff, which leads me to somewhat nerdy projects.

I'll check out Discord.

Unusual weather

It was snowing in Oslo today.  Snow in May is moderately unusual here.  It's still good skiing conditions many places in the woods north of the city, but I think today's skiing will be the last of the season. a.jpg How much snow is left now on 1st May?  Well, the pole is 155 cm long and nearly vanis...

Blaming hidden dimension doesn't have any more explanatory power.  I didn't mean to imply that dark matter is still "matter", but in a such hidden dimension.  Since we don't know what causes what we observe, the label should be vague, and we should make as few assumptions about it as possi...
