First landing of a European Goldfinch on Mars !
Erste Landung eines Stieglitzes auf dem Mars !

Was at this place (Mörbisch/Neusiedler See) so very often and never discovered one these beautiful birds there ! You can imagine my surprise that suddenly 2 of them searched for insects perhaps 10m away from me !
Ich war schon so oft an diesem Platz um zu baden und natürlich auch um Vögel zu fotografieren. Nie bekam ich einen Stieglitz zu Gesicht.
Umso größer war meine Überraschung als ich 2 davon 10 Meter von mir entfernt bei der Nahrungssuche entdeckte !

Yosemite Falls

Yosemite Falls is the highest waterfall in Yosemite National Park, dropping a total of 2,425 feet (739 m) from the top of the upper fall to the base of the lower fall. Located in the Sierra Nevada of California, it is a major attraction in the park, especially in late spring when the water flow is at its peak.

The falls consist of three sections:

    Upper Yosemite Fall: The 1,430-foot (440 m) plunge alone is among the twenty highest waterfalls in the world. Trails from the valley floor and down from other park areas outside the valley lead to both the top and base of Upper Yosemite Fall. The upper fall is formed by the swift waters of Yosemite Creek, which, after meandering through Eagle Creek Meadow, hurl themselves over the edge of a hanging valley in a spectacular and deafening show of force.

    Middle Cascades: Between the two obvious main plunges there are a series of five smaller plunges collectively referred to as the Middle Cascades. Taken together these account for a total drop of 675 feet (206 m), more than twice the height of the Lower Fall. Because of the narrow, constricted shape of the gorge in which these drops occur and the lack of public access, they are rarely noted. Most viewpoints in the valley miss them entirely. Several vantage points for the cascades are found along the Yosemite Falls trail. Several hikers climbing down from the trail towards the cascades have required an expensive helicopter rescue due to steep and slippery terrain and features.

    Lower Yosemite Fall: The final 320-foot (98 m) drop adjacent to an accessible viewing area, provides the most-used viewing point for the waterfalls. Yosemite Creek emerges from the base of the Lower Fall and flows into the Merced River nearby. Like many areas of Yosemite the plunge pool at the base of the Lower Fall is surrounded by dangerous jumbles of talus made even more treacherous by the high humidity and resulting slippery surfaces.

In years of little snow, the falls may actually cease flowing altogether in late summer or fall. A very small number of rock climbers have taken the opportunity to climb the normally inaccessible rock face beneath the falls, although this is an extraordinarily dangerous undertaking; a single afternoon thunderstorm could restart the falls, sweeping the climbers off the face.

Lower Yosemite Fall is easily accessible near the Yosemite Lodge in Yosemite Valley. The top of Upper Yosemite Fall may be reached via a steep, strenuous, and usually crowded 3.5 miles (5.6 km) hike beginning near Camp 4. The Upper Fall may also be reached via several routes from the Tioga Road to the north.


The Ahwahneechee Legend

The main village of the native people of Yosemite Valley, the Ahwahneechee, was located at the base of the falls.

The Ahwahneechee people called the waterfall "Cholock" ("the fall") and believed that the plunge pool at its base was inhabited by the spirits of several witches, called the Poloti. An Ahwaneechee folktale describes a woman going to fetch a pail of water from the pool, and drawing it out full of snakes. Later that night, after the woman had trespassed into their territory, the spirits caused the woman's house to be sucked into the pool by a powerful wind, taking the woman and her newborn baby with it.

Pointed Debate

Yesterday’s post on black holes stirred up things a bit, particularly among those who truly think black holes don’t exist. Some of the counter-arguments centered on the strangeness of event horizons, but most of it centered on the fact that black holes have singularities, which clearly defy all things science. Ergo, black holes don’t exist. Here we go again.

To begin with, let’s talk a little bit about what a singularity is and what it has to do with black holes. In simple terms, as the weight of an object tries to cause it to collapse, the pressure of the material pushes back until an equilibrium is reached. In the case of a star, it is the pressure of heated plasma that balances the weight, while for a white dwarf or neutron star it is the quantum degeneracy pressure of electrons or neutrons respectively. But at ever higher densities, the weight becomes harder to overcome. What’s worse, since mass and energy are related in relativity, there comes a point where the pressure of a material actually increases the weight, so the very thing used to counter gravity becomes part of the problem. It’s kind of like putting a fire out with water. Pour water on a small fire and it quickly goes out. Pour water on the Sun, and the weight of the water actually increases the Sun’s mass, which causes the Sun to heat up.

So the basic idea is that for things more dense than a neutron star, you get to the point where things are too dense to reach equilibrium. Even trying to create enough pressure to counter gravity would only help gravity, and so collapse is inevitable. The material of a star would simple collapse until there is literally no smaller volume to occupy. It would become a point of infinite density and zero volume, which is known as a singularity. At this point some of you are probably thinking “see, this is the kind of model-dependent nonsense I’m talking about.” Clearly singularities are nonsense, so clearly black holes don’t exist.

Interestingly, this is exactly the type of argument many astrophysicists made when black holes were first proposed. Even Einstein doubted black holes were possible. So you’re in good company if you doubt black holes, but you’re also about a century behind the times. Despite the way black holes are often presented, it wasn’t the model that convinced astrophysicists of black holes, it was the evidence.

The first “black hole” solution to Einstein’s general relativity equations was found by Karl Schwarzschild in 1916. At the time Schwarzschild himself showed that strange nonsensical things happened in the solution, which we now call the event horizon and the singularity. Interestingly, it was the event horizon that was seen as more problematic, because the “singularity” was just a mathematical concept, just like treating objects as point masses in Newtonian gravity. But soon more sophisticated models showed that matter within the event horizon of a black hole would most certainly collapse into a singularity. So for decades it was thought that black holes simply wouldn’t form. Surely the dynamics of material would prevent anything that dense from actually happening.

But in the 1960s neutron stars were discovered. It became clear that you could have several solar masses compressed into the volume the size of a small city. Neutron stars are fairly close to the critical density of a black hole, so it wasn’t unreasonable to imagine a collision or accretion of mass from another star triggering the formation a black hole. By the 1970s and 1980s there was growing evidence of black holes, both from x-ray binaries and the like for stellar mass black holes, and quasars and galaxy jets for supermassive black holes. In our own galaxy we now have orbital evidence from stars that show a supermassive black hole in our own galaxy. It is now decidedly clear that black holes exist.

But what about that pesky singularity? That’s actually a matter of some debate. Some argue that Hawking radiation will prevent singularities from forming. Some argue that things like dark energy might prevent their formation. Others argue that “singularities” might actually be a mechanism for forming other universes. It’s all pretty speculative, and they should all be considered a bit speculative.

But none of that disputes the existence of black holes. They are just discussions about one strange aspect of black holes. Models are a good way to understand things, but it’s the evidence that wins the day.
There is still much debate about black hole singularities, even though it's pretty clear black holes exist.
