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?
