Stayed up too late. Got woken up too early. Full of the tiredy dunwannas, so I'm getting a slow start on my day.

The day includes cat litter, dishes, and a battle versus mold, which I think pretty well explains the dunwannas.

Scientists Are About to Switch on a Telescope That Could Photograph a Black Hole's Event Horizon
Called the Event Horizon Telescope, the new device is made up of a network of radio receivers located across the planet, including at the South Pole, in the US, Chile, and the French alps.

The network will be switched on between 5 and 14 April this year, and the results will put Einstein's theory of general relativity through its paces like never before.

The Event Horizon Telescope works using a technique known as very-long-baseline interferometry (VLBI), which means the network of receivers will focus in on radio waves emitted by a particular object in space at one time.

For the black hole, they'll be focusing on radio waves with a wavelength of 1.3 mm (230 GHz), which gives them the best chance of piercing through any clouds of gas and dust blocking the black hole.

And because there are so many of these antennae all tuned in on a single spot, the resolution of the telescope should be 50 microarcseconds. To put that into perspective, it's the equivalent of being able to see a grapefruit on the surface of the Moon

That's important, because the first target will be the huge black hole at the centre of our galaxy, called Sagittarius A*, which is actually only the size of a pinprick in our night sky.

We've never directly observed Sagittarius A*, but researchers know it exists because of the way it influences the orbit of nearby stars.

Based on the behavior of these stars, researchers predict that the black hole is likely about 4 million times more massive than our Sun, but with an event horizon diameter of just 20 million km (12.4 million miles) or so across.

At a distance of around 26,000 light-years away from Earth, that makes it a pretty small target.

But the Event Horizon Telescope will aim to observe the immediate environment around the black hole, and it should be able to get enough resolution to see the black hole itself.

So noted: The water in the kettle heats up much faster if you actually turn on the stove burner.

Saturday! Thus beginneth the week of February vacation. In a little while I am taking SALM and Middlest to the train station so they can head down to New Jersey to see her grandmother; kiddo is staying the week, but LoverMan is going to toottoot home tomorrow.

I'm going to try finishing up my letter-writing today, and then perhaps start on the canvas panel I have sitting here by my desk. I'm going to do a Nevertheless, she persisted. on it. I need to decide on colors, and whether to paint the background or have it just be the Gallifreyan on canvas.

Unicorn Day continues all weekend, you magical motherfuckers! Show me your unicorns. Draw one, even!

(And if you want to pop it in the mail, send it to PO Box 473, Sharon MA 02067. A herd of unicorns on the wall would be a hoot.)

I declare it to be Unicorn Day. Give me all the unicorns.

(I reserve the right to have Unicorn Day go all weekend)

Temporary and thoughtful censorship of art as art piece protesting exclusion and mistreatment of immigrants.

I am fascinated.

Discuss.

Everything's a-kilter!

The schedule, which had found a new usual, has shifted yet again under me, and I am standing with my knees bent and my arms out, letting my feet rise and fall with its movements like finding sea legs in the non-tangible concept of time and the equally non-tangible boundaries of deadlines and assignments that we apply to it.

Today is for writing letters in return to letters I have received, and for watching over a kiddo. It might also be for laundry, or for recording, but not both.

No, not both.
