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.

They just need to go to Washington DC, and they'll find plenty of 'em.

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?

We Need to Listen to the Founders and Stop the Forever War.

Just a little over a year ago during his speech at the National Defense University here in Washington, D.C., President Obama talked about winding down Bush’s War on Terror. But as American bombers continue to strike against ISIS in Iraq and now Syria, it now looks like the War on Terror will be with us for years to come. And that’s a really dangerous thing for our democracy.
