That's drymounting wild that they can determine the size of two spiraling black holes from two earth bound mirrors moving a thousandth of a width of a proton.

that collided 1.3 billion years ago, based on a theory published 100 years ago, with an experimental idea thought of 50 years ago. How drymounting insane is that!?!?!?

It is drymounting crazy to think that on Sept 14, 2015, space time ripples from an event 1.3 billion years ago reached us and we were listening.

It is incredible, but makes me feel so infinitesimal at the same time.

It’s official. Chemistry’s highest gatekeepers have accepted the newly proposed names for elements 113, 115, 117 and 118.

Please welcome to the periodic table: Nihonium, Moscovium, Tennessine and Oganesson.

A friend added me to this Flat Earth Society group on facebook recently. Lots of awesomeness up in there. I see what all this group buzz is about now.

I want to start a GoFundMe page to help me buy a seat on the trip-to-the-moon SpaceX rocket. Talk about ultimate bucket list. You could humanely euthanize me after that.
