NASA searches for Black Holes

8 posts / 0 new

NASA is ready to launch a sophisticated new telescope into orbit today that will use x-ray vision to hunt for black holes in the universe. The telescope will be able to produce images that are 100 times more sensitive than any other telescope – and scientists hope it will give them a much clearer view of the working of black holes.

Of course – this ambitious NASA mission depends on one thing: and that’s not getting intercepted by the robotic pigeons of Plant Zenu on the way.

Black holes or Robotic Pidgeons or both?

I reccommend the movie "Contact" with Jodie Foster based on a book by Carl Sagan.

MrsBJLee... you aren't allowed to ask such questions without running them past Jan in Iowa or Pierpont.

Didn't you get the memo?

Time to Rethink the War on Terror

When Eric Holder eventually steps down as Attorney General, he will leave behind a complicated legacy, some of it tragic, like his decision not to prosecute Wall Street after the financial crisis, and his all-out war on whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.
