  • I know this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVbOxh7tQCc isn’t culturally appropriate but it has the same message and is wonderful to listen too at the same time. I don’t know if this would be a ...
  • Nah that’ll never happen NZ is one of our favourite R&R locations. :-) I wonder what became of Tasmania, poor ol Tassie is just a speck. Greg
  • I think it’s probably a good thing if you get disappeared of the media map these days, they usually get things wrong anyhow, (we won’t forget you are there, one day we are going to win a game of ...
  • Yes I agree with that, I would love for humankind to receive an unmistakable message from another intelligent race from elsewhere in the galaxy, a message that could be translated and also provide ...
  • I know its wild but 6C is possible, read this http://lofi.forum.physorg.com/Superluminal-Jets-in-M87_5252.html but special relativity still isn’t violated…so they say. (something to do with ...
  • You probably can’t be too careful these days. Greg Feelin lucky?
  • Satellite radar altimeters use the 4.2 GHz frequency and so do radar altimeters in commercial airliners. I’m not saying that’s what it was but it’s possible…maybe. http://www.spectrumwiki.com/wiki/ ...

    The idea is pretty much a dud, even if you carry cylinders of He that can recharge the large lifting pontoons for successive lifts and glides how much payload will it carry? A handful of ...
  • There was some effort at training German shepherds to carry mines strapped to their back under Soviet tanks during WWII, I’m not sure how successful it was, I guess some actually did what they ...
  • Chris the spacecraft idea is not as out of possible consideration as one might think, Sagittarius is on the ecliptic and the Pioneer probes were initially travelling in association with the ...
  • Whatever it was it seems to have originated from a point source as they say it had a peak in the intensity curve, if it had originated from a weak reflected signal one would think that it would ...

    Yes GB I was pulling your leg, but there is the nagging actual observation just the same, the approaching angled superluminal jet is very visible but the corresponding receding jet is nowhere to ...

    Yes we have, as previously linked Cygnus X-1 is a black-hole…it can be nothing else due to the observational evidence; i.e. its effect on the surroundings, Steven Hawking agrees with that assessment. ...
  • Replied in Um....
    I get the strong impression that if some was moving at more than the speed of light then the impartial observer wouldn't 'see' it anyway. Just like we can't see the 5c receding jet in M87. :-D Greg
