A brief follow-up on Black Holes…

First of all, it seems the Universe is full of BHs. It appears there is at least one in just about every galaxy. And according to the latest estimates (that vary considerably) there are between 100 and 200 billion galaxies in the observable Universe. With Hubble we can look back to about 450 million...

Today Something different…

Sorry, I haven’t been around much, doing all kinds of stuff I won’t bore you with. And, as some of you know, I also sometimes stick my nose into things that are really none of my business – such as physics. Which is why at night, after I’ve gone to bed and I can’t fall sleep because of Bennie’s... Sign in to see full entry.

Another BC Special…Part VI

After the farewell to Cassini and plugging the panacea of camel urine, the time has come for a few thoughts about this series. (BTW, in France you can now buy Urine de Chameau, nicely bottled…) Today I’ll let you in on a little secret – this is actually work for me! It’s not the kind of work that...

The cure for hair loss…

A few days ago out TAPS wrote a couple of posts about hair loss. It’s an issue I am somewhat familiar with, though have come to see as a benefit: the money I save on haircuts is spend much more pleasantly on scotch, bourbon or of course tequila, at least in the summer. But if one is concerned, there... Sign in to see full entry.

Goodbye, Cassini…

As a follow up to my previous post on this subject, today’s the day when Cassini enters Saturn’s atmosphere and gets torn to smithereens… Reflecting on that, it is kinda sad, which makes me also think of how much we get attached to (Freud would say ‘invest libido in’) inanimate objects, in this case...

Another BC Special…Part V

We’re finally getting on with this – welcome back to class. First I shall address one comment – but only one. I appreciate them all, of course, but if I were to respond to all we wouldn’t get anywhere. It’s Pat’s, who writes: “Another factor, which you'll no doubt come to, is that for at least the...

Today – a quick trip into space…

Before getting into all that other boring stuff again about the way our civilization is nearing its end, here is a fascinating piece about an event taking place about 745 million miles away as I write this: Cassini’s final moments! Its long mission ending, it is torn to bits as it enters Saturn’s... Sign in to see full entry.

9/11

I was going to write another installment for the current little series, but decided against it, even if it is highly relevant. Instead, I just want to remember all those who lost their lives, and the many more who lost their health, and think of the many whose lives were shattered because they lost...

Just whistlin’ in the wind…

I am not making light of the disaster about to befall beautiful Florida – I wish the hurricane would change course out to sea, and I am hoping fervently there won’t be any loss of life if and when it does hit. But I also know that my wishing and hoping has as much effect on what is happening as the... Sign in to see full entry.

Another BC Special…Part IV

I’m late with this – forgive me, I’ve been busy… Again – interesting comments on the previous post in this series that may drag on for longer than intended… But I can’t deal with them all in detail if I want to make any progress at all. So let me just say that FSI’s observation that ‘many people do... Sign in to see full entry.
