John Graber originally shared to Mathematics & Science:
 
I would implore all scientists, particularly physicists, to read this article from +Scientific American. Written by a physicist/philosopher, a mathematician, and a philosopher, it is the best I have read on the topic of physics vs philosophy to date.

The claim made by far too many prominent scientists — that philosophy is dead — even as they unknowingly engage in philosophy, is a far flung, overreaching generalization that is simply incorrect. (Although admittedly this might be the case for cosmological metaphysics, as mentioned in the article.)

Coming from a background heavy in applied mathematics and science, I love these subjects. But also having discovered the vast field of philosophy later in life, I am strongly of the opinion that these three subject areas together form the foundation of human endeavor and achievement. And I would very much like to see a revival of philosophical training as a part of college curriculums for this reason. After all, isn't the ability to reason and think critically of tremendous importance to these fields?

How a Black Hole Consumes a Star

This amazing footage (from +NASA - who else?) shows just how devastatingly powerful a #blackhole  truly is.

Shot over the course of 139 days, this visualization footage shows a supermassive black hole that is approximately 2.7 billion light years away from earth decimating a star. From +SPACE.com:

"In this visualization, some of the murdered star's debris falls into the void, but some is spun up and shot out at high velocities.Credit: NASA, S. Gezari (The Johns Hopkins University), and J. Guillochon (University of California, Santa Cruz)."

The arc of stardust that is flung out into the #cosmos  is unbelievable.

It's a #gif  like this that reminds us here at www.solarvps.com that #space  is not only mind boggingly big, but also mind-boggingly violent and treacherous, even for objects as massive as stars.

We do love this place and recommend it as a good late night sub shop. Well made & fresh products are used. • Noticed orders aren't being made as asked recently. 3-last orders have had mistakes. When I called to express tonight .. night assist manager was very overwhelmed and upset.
