Gravitational lensing includes several things, A magnetic ball in space collects many types of atoms building gravity. When you detach from these particles you have antigravity. Dark energy is also in play here. Antihydrogen fusion collected around the outside of earths ionosphere building the ionosphere from the inside out and not from the sun as thought. We also have atmospheres that bend light. The Heisenberg bubble idea will not work... its still plowing photons or dark energy. To become the field that creates the universe (Dark Energy) is the only way to escape light speed into WARP drive.

Here's a neat proposal on how to use the Kepler telescope now that it's hobbled with just two reaction wheels:

Our galaxy's black hole is a messy eater:

I  saw  a  2012  post  by  Clara  arguing  that  "everything  you  think  you  know  about  black  holes  is  wrong."  I  thought,  "At  last!  Someone  will  agree  with  me  that  black  holes can't  finish  coming  into  existence  relative  to  us!,"  which  means  that  for  our  purposes  there  is  no  such  thing  as  a  black  hole.  But  I  was  wrong.  She  wrote  what  she  wrote  for  other  reasons.  Clara  blurbs  up  above  that the  Milky  Way's  black hole  "is  a  messy  eater."   No  it  isn't.  It  doesn't  exist,  relative  to  us.  The  logic  is  simple:  Relative  to  distant  observers  --  us  --  all  collapsars  never  stop  being  collapsars.  As  the  collapsing  material   approaches  its  own  event-horizon-in-formation,  relative  to  us,   it  approaches  the  event-horizon-in-formation  asymptotically  --  slower  and  slooooooooower  and  sloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooower,  relative  to  us.  That  is  why  we  call  it  an  "event  horizon,"  is  it  not?  So,  every  single  one  of  these  things  which  astronomers  call  "black  holes"   aren't  "black  holes."    They  are  collapsars  with  accretion  disks  --  without  exception.  For  these  things  to  be  black  holes,  relative  to  us,   we  have  to  be  non-distant  observers.  When  we  are  non-distant  observers,  the  perfect  paradox  of  relativity  is  experienced  --   what  doesn't  exist   relative  to  distant  observers  "suddenly"  "begins"  to  "exist"   relative  to  us  for  the  same  object.  It  was  this  logic  which  made  me  think  that  those  who  expressed  a  fear  that  what  they  referred  to  as  "mini  black  holes"   might  be  created  by  the  Collider  might  be  correct.   In  fact,  the  objects  would  be  permanently-extant-and-perpetually-destructive  "mini  collapsars,"   just  as  dangerous  as  the  imagined  black  holes,  carving  their  way  through  Earth  with  ever-growing  super-hot  accretion  disks  and  jets!

It's definitely a concept under consideration!

It's pretty exciting to think what this Planck data might tell us:

EXISTENCE EXISTS-6

Ayn Rand presents us with the axiomatic concept of Existence.  It cannot be refuted.  And if it exists here it must exist throughout our Universe and beyond.  It is infinite.  And if it exists here now, it must have existed from an eternity past and we can assume that it will exist for another eternity.  It is eternal.  Finally, as it exists here now, after an eternity of burning, it must possess a mechanism whereby the ashes of the burned up stars are transformed into new galaxies, at an efficiency of 100%.

This Cosmological Model can be found using the evidence found by the astronomers over the past centuries, but stated in scientific language.  Think about it.  No magic needed.

Dark matter is just one of the reasons the Fermi telescope may be changing tacks:

I can't recommend the new shuttle Atlantis display at Kennedy Space Center high enough - truly amazing!

I'll be very curious to see if this potential dark matter signal pans out:

IVE BEEN INTO QUANTUM FOR QUIT SOMETIME . IM A SIMPLE MAN AND FINDING OTHERS WITH LIKE MINDED THOUGHTS AND INTRESTS ARENT EASILY COME BY. I NEVER BEEN SCHOOLED TO LEARN THE BASICS OF ANYTHING THAT HAS TO DO WITH QUANTUM AND YET I STILL FIND MYSELF IN DELIGHT TO READ AND LEARN AND TEACH. I BELIEVE THE UNIVERSE IS LIKE THOUGHTS IN A SENSE. EVER EXPANDING THE AWARENESS OF THE EXPANSION AND CONTRACTION OF THE UNIVERSE. MY KNOWLEDGE MOSTLY CAME FROM INTENSE THOUGHTS .NATURAL AWARENESS BRINGS ENLIGHTMENT THOUGH "SUN GAZING"
