its amazing what humans are capable of. somehow, artifical gravity doesnt seem so far fetched.
i wonder how long till someone figures out theoretical FTL travel.


Theoretical means of FTL have been described. They require compressing space and inverted gravity wells.


yeah, but a einstein rosenberg bridge is still not FTL. or are you thinking of something else?

Something else, though just as unlikely as an Einstein Rosenberg bridge.

If no one else will read it, I certainly will take interest! Science nerd alllll the way. I just wish I had majored in Physics and had an actual accumulated understanding rather than certain specifics, but I am sure you understand lol.

I was watching the live press conference and they mentioned plans for a laser interferometer in space to reduce the noise level from the surface even further, and I thought that was an interesting concept. But there are a lot of new G Wave detectors coming online in the next decade, along with the James Webb Telescope, makes me giddy

I didn't get to see the press conference. I look forward to hearing what we hear when we get the interferometer completed. I remember a year or two back I heard what the solar system sounded like. It almost sounded like a heart beat.

All this fun nerdy science stuff really makes me giddy too. Just how much of a god was Einstein haha.
