Clean limitless energy is in our future
150 picoseconds of scientific breakthrough, though "ignition" remains a distant goal.

Maybe, but they only have to double the pressure to achieve ignition. I guess it depends on the definition of near (considering 100 years ago the new big thing was riding a machine with wheels instead of an animal to get around).

From 3 years ago, but it fits the season. And, is how I typically look.

It's hilarious to hear a five-year-old girl singing those lyrics.

Even if you don't really understand it - and I don't - the firewall problem in black hole physics is interesting.  Why?  Because it's getting really famous physicists to say really weird stuff.  Either a revolution is near, or some very smart people are going to be very embarrassed in a few years.

For example, take this new paper:

• Juan Maldacena and Leonard Susskind, Cool horizons for entangled black holes, http://arxiv.org/abs/1306.0533.

Maldacena discovered something big called the AdS-CFT correspondence, which relates string theory and gauge theory.  He won a MacArthur Fellowship and wads of other prizes, and now he's at the Institute for Advanced Studies.  Susskind is one of the founders of string theory, now director of the Stanford Institute for Theoretical Physics. 

So, these guys aren't dopes!  But they're suggesting that whenever two quantum particles are in an entangled state, they're connected by a wormhole

It may take some training in physics to realize how goofy that sounds.

Their picture of Hawking radiation is equally wacky at first glance.  Each particle emitted by the black hole is actually one end of a wormhole that connects back to the middle of the black hole!

I won't try to explain why they think this is possible.  I don't understand it well enough, and I know when to shut up.  So, either read their paper or try this blog article:

• John Preskill, Entanglement = wormholes, http://quantumfrontiers.com/2013/06/07/entanglement-wormholes/.

I am, however, writing a paper on entanglement and wormholes.

Can't wait for the new Cosmos.  Carl Sagan would be proud.

Yes it's a real product. I would buy it just because of the commercials.

I wonder how much money one can earn over the years to slowly suck the life out of a once top company?

Grilled Balsamic Onion, Tomato and Mozzarella Stack~
Marinated onion slices in a balsamic vinegar marinade, then grilled on a hot grill. The result was a vertical salad filled with gooey mozzarella cheese!
