Physicists detect gravitational waves

+The New York Times: Physicists announced on Thursday that they had heard and recorded the sound of two black holes colliding a billion light-years away. The tone is the first direct evidence of gravitational waves, the ripples in the fabric of space-time that Einstein predicted a century ago.

Scientists say they heard the faint chirp of two black holes colliding a billion light-years away, fulfilling Einstein’s general theory of relativity.

There were several implications of his work that Einstein rejected. His quote about God not playing dice with the universe explains some of it. The idea that the universe could be so freakish and counterintuitive was unsettling to him, I think.

Spooky action at a distance, for instance, freaked him right the f*ck out. :)

Let's calm down. Scientists have been claiming the detection of Gravitational Webs since the 60s. Each claim has been the subject of a lot of investigation and other potential cause was found for the observation.

This is incredibly tricky business. You have to detect incredibly small disturbances and I don't believe that the signature of a black-hole merger is firmly established.
 
Wow. Just wow.
The detection was hailed as a triumph for a controversial, exquisitely crafted, billion-dollar physics experiment and as confirmation of a key prediction of Albert Einstein's General Theory of Relativity.

Indeed. I discussed science, phlogiston and pcoseconds back in 2014. (No animals were harmed in the writing of this post) "Schrodinger's Cat(s); and Gravitational Waves, Revisited" http://catholiccitizenamerica.blogspot.com/2014/09/schrodingers-cats-and-gravitational.html

Isn't this like a massive Reddit specific inside joke?

Remember, rape isn't about sex it's about power and control. Therefore this suggestion may not be hypocritical.

This is big. When was the last time that a US Championship might be the World's Strongest National Championship played this year?

Hmmm... maybe not in average rating, but even there, I think it might be close.

Looking at this, doesn't anyone else immediately think of a Dalek wearing a shroud?

Not at first, but my first thought was this was a Dr. Who set.

I love Soundcloud. There's so much good to listen to there.

Could this be the beginning of the collapse of ad-supported free media stores like Soundcloud? I note that Vevo is pulling a lot of their Youtube content and making you go to their site.

Maybe I'm connecting too many dots.
A financial report shows the company's overheads have increased faster than its revenue.

Catholic, Father of a young man with Autism, geek, other things
Introduction
Catholic, husband, father of a young man with Autism and a wonderful daughter who is a recent graduate from Miami University (Ohio, Miami was a University before Florida was a state) not sure what I do for a living but I think it has something to do with computers.

I think there's enough information below to figure out if you know me or not.  One thing I'm not is this guy.  I'm 32 years older than that guy!

I thought I was probably the oldest Jordan Henderson in the world, because the name Jordan wasn't popular as a first name in 1959, when I was born, but then I got some email that was supposed to go to a Doctor Jordan Henderson at a DoD Hospital in Texas.  I corresponded with him, determining I was certainly older than him, but he was Jordan Henderson the third, both his Father and Grandfather were named Jordan Henderson, so there is at least one and probably more than one older Jordan Henderson.

I reserve the right to delete comments that I think are off-topic, not of general interest, trolls (I'm arbiter) or for any reason really.  The single threaded discussion threads where most people only see the last comment is bad enough, but can be improved with editorial control, which I do take from time to time.

I'll also make posts with comments off.  Sometimes, I'm making a statement, not starting a conversation.  Message me if you want to have a private conversation about the issue. I think I'll typically share these with reshare enabled, so if you feel you'd like to share an observation about the post, reshare it with your comment.  Mention me and I might join in the conversation, but there's a good possibility I won't.
