  • Replied in Watch here
    They say a policeman was injured (stabbing?) in or close to Parliament and the assailant was shot by other police. Condition unknown at the moment. It seems the assaulted policeman wasn't armed ...

    The page works on the computer ok but the live feed doesn't work for me. Anyway Al Jazeera has the BBC coverage on at the moment on TV so it's probably the same thing.
  • They (Al Jazeera) were just talking to a witness who went on to the bridge because of the police cars arriving and he counted 5 people badly wounded by something or other, he didn’t hear any ...
  • They think they have a good idea what those fast radio bursts might be, instead of light sails in a distant galaxy they might be emanating from local stars of a couple of select types in our own ...
  • I think the reason why the acceleration would rip us apart is because the acceleration would probably vary through the distance of the human body, some parts closest to the BH would be ...
  • Yes zackery so, anyway the accretion area will probably zap you with million degree C before your feet or head experience differential acceleration forces, mind I’m not sure the free fall thing ...

    Ok, but it's fraught with peril. It's not even covered either, what about vagabonds and varlets who might nick one or two at a traffic stop?
  • You have to keep in mind that the event horizon is the boundary where the gravitational force is so strong that not even light can escape which kinda puts a kink in the idea of reducing gravity as ...

    Agreed Wu, but there isn't any chance I'd be trusting one of those stretchy tie-downs to that precious cargo, (they can fail) use some good honest rope for gawd sake.
  • Take that with a grain of salt OTM, the guy is bored and just looking to get a reaction that's all. Of course he/they don't really think that way, he/they are just looking to stir the pot by being ...
  • Ha! What next level? They’ll rest on their laurels comfortable in the knowledge that ‘Oh we can beat those Aussie’s anytime’... POW! That’s when we’ll get em because they will have grown fat and ...
  • Maybe if we give them a big enough bribe they'll let us win...just once, damn that won't work either they are goody goody two shoes and can't be corrupted...hmm back to the drawing board. Maybe if ...
  • Yeah I shudder to think of possible inhabited solar systems with advanced life forms living in them being inexorably drawn toward oblivion, damn morbid thinking isn’t it? I'm not sure such a ...
  • I bet I know what they did, our survey happened first and NZ found out how happy we were and then they got happier than us on purpose.
  • GB it takes about 15 million years for a star to actually form in a molecular cloud and develop into a proto star according to what little I know of how stars form and that’s still a long way from ...
  • I think whoever came up with that idea can go first. Something that grew to 40 billion solar masses didn’t get that big by being Mr nice guy, that's what I think anyhow.
  • Yeah a universe that has life would automatically select for designing another with conditions for life, I’ve heard that one before somewhere too, and I still don’t get it either. I liked where the ...
  • This is one of the important questions that really needs an answer. I’m wondering if 200 million years is enough time to form the first stars and wait for them go supernova and release a bunch of ...
  • I have been trying to get through this post but haven’t made huge progress so far. I ran across the multiple horizon proposal just a couple of days ago and it set me wondering about how that would ...
  • There’s some whoppers in that list, I see there’s one that’s unusually massive given the low population area it’s in…hmm that might be because it ate everything…haha. :-D
