Y'all have any thoughts on the recent FRBs detected this month?

The Future of Humanity & Intelligent life in the universe

Thanks Mosfet. It's an interesting article (even if the website is plastered with ads), though little of it is 'news' to me 8-). The story and investigation of Loeb's work has been on a low simmer since fall last year.

The Future of Humanity & Intelligent life in the universe

Oumuamua again This link is useless if Haaretz won't allow you to read the article. There is a recent interview with Loeb by Der Spiegel Online which is interesting even though it opens up with the question "Professor Loeb, do you have a favorite alien?"  :roll:. I'm open to the idea of '...

26255 Perhaps it would also be able to actually convert a star into a black hole for this purpose? All things considered, it is disturbingly easy for an advanced civilization (about K2.5 or K3 - 'easy' being a relative term) to make a blackhole out of a star. All they would need to do is concentrat...

26228 Haha, I think we were talking about two different explanations for the same thing. My bad. 26228 That's when we started to use fractional charges too and such terms as "charge confinement" "quantum chromodynamics" "quantum electrodynamics" etc, became commonplace...

26215 But the reason why it's intuitive to unify everything under a single umbrella is because the universe did originate from a single point, the big bang, cosmic egg, or singularity, or whatever you want to call it, if everything did truly evolve from that and our universe cannot be influenced at...

Science and Astronomy Questions

Astrophysical jets made by blackholes are often those made by the supermassives, not stellar-mass blackholes. So yes, most binary-type stellar-mass blackholes that do not reside in a young galaxy OR near a galactic core will not produce ejection jets. That being said, there are extreme examples of ...

26217 This might be a problem specific to a charged or spinning (or both) black hole? Yes, only blackholes that are being 'fed' a lot of matter at once produce jets, like the one at the center of our galaxy (Sagittarius A*) or distant quasars. What you see as a jet is, in most cases, a hiccup or 'b...

26205 Rather, they work the way they do I was joking of course, but wouldn't it be unscientific to say something "just is" without an explanation? I could easily see a 'god of the gaps' argument formulating there. 26212 It would be fascinating if an alien species had actually done somethi...

26185 Oh that sucks, unifying everything under a single umbrella is really attractive. It's so attractive to us because our brains are literally hardwired to manufacture and maintain hegemonous mental-models of thoughtforms in relation to observed phenomena. We adore symmetrical and elegant explana...

26198 Some of us are english natives, some not. Use of some wording can be misunderstood, warped, sometimes sounding unnecessarily harsh. This is true. A example that comes to mind is when cultural trends clash. In Russia for example, honesty in social interactions is valued, so they can sound rude...

26182 This is also the idea behind a "black hole bomb", using light and a specially constructed mirror to extract rotational energy from a spinning black hole and produce an explosion of tremendous power. Ahh yes, Roger Penrose. A few years ago I read his work after coming across it so of...
